Anyone got a good, relatively short, zine on the basics of workers cooperatives?

#workercooperative #coop #zine #zines

Nice definition from section:
CHT is a infrastructure, not a community.
- Community-based systems are reproduced through people explaining things to each other (over and over again).
- Infrastructural systems are formed and reproduced through defining processes.

Considering how to create self-governing pod, based on #stellar token. The idea is that when deploying, pod will programmatically create issuing and distribution account, emit limited number of tokens (and lock issuing account after it), and put tokens for sale. Then participants buys that tokens, creates accounts on pod and add their stellar public keys to profiles. After it, any user could initiate governing issue, like assigning pod moderators, or initiate payment (for example for hosting) from distribution account, and all participants will be able to vote. Pod will fetch participant's balances from horizon, and the vote weight will be equal to number of pod tokens at participant’s stellar wallet.
The questions are, how to verify that certain user is owner of stellar wallet, as he mentioned in profile. And how to avoid issue, that server admin could launch deployment process once again, and switch pod governing to newly generated token
Also could be discussed at github

Every respectful #Balkan country hurry to be proud of Nikola# Tesla. Because he is their guy. #Croatia, #Montenegro, #Albania, #Serbia, #Bosnia and even #Macedonia are pretending to own this guy.
What do you think, who have right to name him as "our guy"? Maybe #physics?

@freshbox and there's also consumer co-ops and multi-stakeholder co-ops which are harder to use traditional partnerships for.

But it's always *possible* to have partnerships that *are* effectively the same as co-ops. Co-ops are mainly dedication to ica.coop/en/whats-co-op/co-ope and partnerships that do that adequately basically *are* co-ops.

What is the diference beetween and . Isn't coop a some kind of reinventing the wheel?

Thinking about plug-and-play Mastodon-compatible micro-servers.

Could be built around a Raspberry Pi Zero W, configurable through being plugged into a computer via USB with a super simple wizard. Only has to support a single household of users. The "consumer router" of Mastodon servers.

Make it super easy to get your non-technical family off of FB/Twitter and into better touch with you.

Have watched the last season of ) Now, trying to guess what kind of software did they created. Is it without blockchain?)) What means "new internet", it's some kind of ?
