We're proud to announce the upcoming release of Funkwhale 1.1 around March 15.

For the first time in Funkwhale's history, this release was supervised and published entirely by Georg, a new maintainer of the project, instead of our usual @agateblue ;)

Georg has published the first release candidate today, and we encourage admins to give it a try and share their feedback so we can spot and correct bugs and regressions.

You can learn more about this release at blog.funkwhale.audio/~/Announc, and governance.funkwhale.audio/d/a will give you all the instructions to update and share your feedback.

Many, many thanks who to all the people who contributed to this release and to the project as a whole ❤️

Great excerpt from a fascinating paper about the Danish labour movement and coops.

The decline of social democratic parties is too focused on policies and not enough on organising methods, and when it does, its focused too much on union and not enough on coop organising.

The key mistake we made was not starting new coops as new industries emerged when people started to diversify their consumption habits as they could afford more than just groceries from a coop store.

These tech discussions can also very well be placed in the agora.degrowth.net/c/groups/co category, or directly at projects in lab.allmende.io/degrowth.

Do you have a knowledge base in mind?

We can start from lib.rs/search?q=mdbook, iterate through github.com/Doctave/doctave and come up with a larger repository like github.com/LessWrong2/Lesswron or github.com/publiclab/plots2 later on.

I also like mustersprache.commoning.wiki/

It seems its the backlinking and graph visualisation you are interested about, am I right?

1/ Over the summer, millions of people were introduced to police abolitionism by educator Mariame Kaba (@prisonculture@twitter.com) through a short piece titled "Yes, We Mean Literally Abolish the Police," which ran in the NY Times. Now Kaba—one of the foremost contemporary abolitionists—is back with a collection diving deep into transformative justice organizing. An urgent book that cuts through the bullshit to offer an approach equally visionary and pragmatic, this is a must read!
