I believe it is essential for co-op members and organizers to defend workers rights and support their struggles, including in cooperatives. Please check out this appeal for support from workers in Saskatoon, CA.

Don't hesitate to apply if you find our projects interesting, even if you don't think you have enough experience/fulfill enough requirements. Passion, interest and a willingness to learn go a long way.

We're also a pretty diverse group of people. Not your typical tech workplace

So, if for nothing else than to help people learn from our mistakes, I'd like to start compiling accounts of the unravelling/failure of social.coop.

I will be reaching out to particular people over the next few days, but if anyone out there left/chose not to join social.coop for Reasons and would be willing to talk about it (anonymously if you want), please DM.

Please boost for visibility.

Good to see an upgraded social.coop back up and running. Hoping to get engaged a bit helping with the regeneration process in the next few weeks. So far I’m just reading.

Warning regarding social.coop 

The instance at social.coop has not upgraded their instance since version 2.1.3, and so they do not receive reports of abuse from other instances

This is a safety issue for users on other instances such as Scholar Social, as (regardless of the good intentions the admins of social.coop) this creates a de facto harbour for potential abusers, where people on other instances who make reports may not even know that no one is reading them
