@loppear @mattcropp and oh so much i never wrote about too. But i stuck to the borders, i never ventured into the middle due to lack of time. i also loved Riot Bayit in Boston, Compersia in DC & Wild Mountain Co-op ME. Truth or Consequences, what a great name! I can make no community-focused mid-west recommendations, but I can recommend reading 'Hinterland' by Phil A. Neel for the flip side. Good luck 🙂

hey everyone, bed found with Laura DeGrace of Green Eye :-) Thanks for boosting x

Sun 21st: Anyone got mates in where I can stay tonight? Today's plans have gone a bit awry. My contact info is at Thanks.

@tbeckett @GuerillaOntologist a few years ago, the UK's Alex Bird of proposed 3 additional coop principles, one of which was a max pay ratio of 1:7. At the time I was shocked by what I perceived to be the lack of ambition towards equal pay... Now, disappointingly, I understand the extent of the capitalist compromise.

“Just 100 companies responsible for 71% of global emissions, study says“

There is a hard limit to how much of an effect lifestyle changes alone can have.

@nicksellen hey there, i'm sure Cornerstoners will be happy to have you again, I'll email them to check. There's a bunch of interesting infrastructural food stuff in Leeds, and you might want to hook up with @Graham_Mitchell who's a bit further to the west of West Yorks. Thanks @douginamug for drawing my attention 🙂

I've been trying to plan a little UK co-op hitchhiking tour, better start this week!

Will start in Glasgow and slowly make my way down south. Looking for sofas/floors to sleep on and co-ops to visit of any kind, but especially digital-y/software ones...

Would like to talk about saving food (esp. with, web hosting, platform co-ops, volunteers, grassroots, open source, CoTech,, etc...

Should start in the next couple of days. Lemme know if I should swing by!

@mattcropp loving the local food networks in , esp Diggers Mirth collective farm and lovely Ms Wienerz revolutionary doughnuts. Pls pass on hugs to - i esp recommend Hard Times cafe, Equal Exchange and Shared Capital - if you can, get a copy of the history of the North Country Coop - an eye-opening account of the Coop Wars in the Twin Cities & much food for thought.
