It's time for #GoogleWalkout
The Tree of Life Synagogue is holding a fundraiser to support medical bills, funeral costs, and building repairs needed after a Neo-Nazi from Gab.ai shot up the synagogue during Shabbat morning services.

Episode 022 - Transforming Technology, Part 1
In which we begin a three-part series on Andrew Feenberg's 2002 book: "Transforming Technology".
This book "rethinks the relationships between technology, rationality, and democracy, arguing that the degradation of labor--as well as of many environmental, educational, and political systems--is rooted in the social values that preside over technological development."

I don't know much about co-ops and education. But this is an interesting development:

social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
