The #Valuation is a central capitalist ritual.
Headed to #Montreal tomorrow for the #Canadian Association for Studies in Co-operation and the Association of Cooperative Educators' combined conference, which is themed on #CooperativeEntrepreneurship.
I'll be there until lunch-time on Thursday (staying in #Longueuil), so open to suggestions and connections folks have for while I'm north o' the border.
I have a feeling at least a few #SocialCoop peeps will be present...
We Own It is looking for fellows interested in organizing electric co-op member owners in the US: https://weown.it/fellowship

The national #ESOP conference is emanating strong Boomer energy tonight... 🤣
Hey there social.coop folks (and hello again fediverse). I've been on mastodon.social recently but I'm excited to see what's happening here. Hoping to find and share resources on #coops in general, but I'm particularly interested in tech co-ops, small-scale farm/garden co-ops and the role that co-ops play in social, economic and environmental justice causes. I'll probably also toot a bit about #permaculture #design #gardening #regenerativeAg #webdev #nature and maybe #soccer
Just posted a review by @mattcropp of the book Democratizing Finance about the history of the CDFI movement in the US:
They still haven't figured out who's top bun yet...
"Recently, when I logged into the Mastodon instance sunbeam.city—a “Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance”—I found a photo of someone’s blooming spider plant next to a conversation about the consequences of ethical transparency in hierarchical systems. It struck me as the quintessential early-Internet experience."
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
