National Comingout Day. Ef em. I neither like the word “national” nor “coming-out”. Why not “universal ever-expanding closet day”. I don’t like forcing some people to live with extra burdens of the task of coming out while everyone else gets inexplicitly labeled as hetero.. oh wait, there’s fully automated luxury gay space( nuh)

I finally got to writing down a list of free software tools that members of my web development cooperative use to run our business - Many thanks to those that helped me, bugged me and supported me with research on this one!

My translation about Loomio, Enspiral, and FoodCloud and others showcasing positive impacts of employing commons-based resource management or sharing economy to community's capacity building appears on ANA's in-flight magazine "Takeoff" for domestic flights starting from this month. Hats off to SEAJ, Sharing Economy Association of Japan for this opportunity!

@emi @Matt_Noyes you may be able to skip some of these explanation if you are posting the article on English media outlets that write about PC or that are critical of how internet is today. But you need additional filling he gap explainer in Japanese publication.

@Matt_Noyes @emi if you mean to write an article in an interview format , you ‘lol need explainer paragraphs on what mastodon is and what .coop/PC aspires to be plus who are these figures answering these questions. Or turn th interview into a introductory article on with the background of why explainer i.e. filter bubbled/ever more centralized web and quote commentary from the draft interview with a modifier explaining who he/she is.

Come to think of it, I can’t really think of the go to place that aggregates and expresses enthusiasm to open internet in Japan. There’s only one advocacy group, a few think tanks but not really a medium/publisher.

So delighted to find 🇪🇺 peeps here <3

@keiko I see. Well, I guess it depends on what it is exactly you're referring to. For example, #p2p, #commons and #platformCoop which you mentioned work in the same direction, but they are different. As such, I think they are the best, clearest terms you could use.

The umbrella term I use for things which go in 'the right direction' is simply 'cooperation'. For me cooperation implies personal autonomy, interpersonal equivalence and mutual interest: it's clearly not domination or competition.

I’m looking for synonym and similar words describing commons based resource management or sharing/peer economy / platform cooperativism that has positive meanings.

Thanks @paulfree14 and hi @keiko :)

What are you looking for exactly? I read your original toot, but I don't think I understand. I'm very much into governing the commons...

WANTED: I’m looking for families members, cousins of the term “sharing economy”, “Platform Cooperativism” with positive implications. What maybe the synonym for commons based mgmt applying technologies for the good of citizens? Please help.

Show more is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
