"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."
— J. P. Barlow, "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace"

We failed at our first newsletter b/c we tried to use Medium letters and…well, nvm. Keep up to date with our co-op and sign up for @WeAreOpenCoop email list here: http://eepurl.com/dEVJNP
Who knows a good front end dev? How is it possible that we are having a hard time filling a #job for @greenpeace international 1st #FOSS project? Peeps - please share: https://workfor.greenpeace.org/vacancies/details/front-end-developer/
@Gargron so... mastodon bridge doesn't work for me (the same issue everyone else always had). Do you have a tip on how to MAKE it work? Dead end Github issues from 2017, no alternatives and a toot from you in January saying "I fixed it" have me reaching out to you directly :) https://social.coop/media/n3CdcDZxjVUVIt01Lgo
I won't be at #Open2018, now will any of our co-op.
Why? Although enjoyed meeting everyone last year, the panel session that marginalised, excluded, and patronised a female member of our co-op still hasn't been apologised for appropriately.
Said member offered to help improve inclusion and diversity this year, but there was no budget available, it seems.
Just because you put a :) on it doesn’t mean it’s nice. #Internet101

social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
