@bhaugen @disco_coop Starting some documentation @ meet.coop. Was going to try gitBook but account login is not working. D'you know gitBook? Are there similar options? I need something hyperlinked, clean navigation (chapters, sidebar unfolding hierarchy), markdown, collaborative.
D'you know what tool DisCO uses? Or who I should ask about this?
The DisCO Handbook link at
mothership.disco.coop/Main_Pag
is empty. Documentation at DisCO seems pretty confusing right now, it used to be clearer.

I've got enough material to go on for the moment with the Disco Manifesto tni.org/en/if-i-only-had-a-hea (80 pages) and worldpece.org/sites/default/fi Ours to Hack and Own (252 pages) 😮 (note that second book is actually copyright although individual authors' contributions are Creative Commons) Licensed)

@johnkuti
When social.coop co-read Ours to Hack & to Own in 2018, I felt it was a pretty mixed book. Some lovely insightful well-formed contributions. And some just boilerplate, or marginal, or plain confused. State of the art in digital infrastructuring, I guess. Probably hasn't improved a whiole lot since then?

@Matt_Noyes
In principle yes. But right now, maybe social.coop cafe/quarterly strategy plus code of conduct review are as much as the traffic will bear?

I really enjoyed the two social.coop book discussions I participated in in the reading group early on (Jackson Rising and Eleanor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals).

Sadly I think life got in the way at some point and I didn't attend after that.

I'd like to again, though.

In general it feels like a nice low(ish) effort way of building community.

Hello! @CaitlinWaddick
I'm not sure if I'll be able to get this book. Would this video with Horowitz be a place to start? youtu.be/aw7IdXJCQyY

@CaitlinWaddick I watched the video, but the conversation is more about "going back to our roots" with historical examples of mutualism - trades unions, New Deal, credit unions, underground railway. I think it could help if you could pick out from the book the parts about the effects of the internet. Personally I don't think there's anything new about precarious work (what they call the "gig economy") but that's the sort of question I think Social.coop potentially wants to address.

@mattcropp @CaitlinWaddick @mike_hales @johnkuti @bhaugen @disco_coop @emi @neil @GuerillaOntologist Ordered it yesterday, definitely up for a conversation. That said, I am finding Beatrice and Sidney Webb's book on Consumer Cooperativism surprisingly contemporary and worth discussion...
