Do you know that when you share your pics you also share so much more? #Metadata can contain the location where the picture was shot, the date and time of shooting, your phone model, aperture, exposure time, etc... Why sharing all this private info with the internetz and #surveillance capitalism when there's no need to?

Isn't it ironic how the largest open source code platform (GitHub) is itself proprietary and closed source?

The problem with converting normal businesses to worker co-ops is that the current owners have to go along with the idea....or do they?

Ramping up for starting the first book in the : Elinor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals: Cooperative Solutions Beyond Markets and States. Join in here:

Really nice article by @ntnsndr on the possibilities of coops in the digital space (and what they’re already achieving).

Quality rather than unnecessary growth; data privacy; federation rather than centralization; harnessing ideas like blockchain for trust; and funding new ventures through cooperative means. Exciting times. (h/t @Matt_Noyes)
