@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
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 https://www.tni.org/en/if-i-only-had-a-heart (80 pages) and https://worldpece.org/sites/default/files/artifacts/media/pdf/ourstohackandown.pdf Ours to Hack and Own (252 pages) 😮 (note that second book is actually copyright although individual authors' contributions are Creative Commons) Licensed)
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?

@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.
