Hi Fediverse, Happy to have joined. Long overdue!

Hi, I'm just joined social.coop (having been over on mastodon.social for a few months), and intend this to be my main Mastodon instance. I'm keen on the movement and co-operative principles (my first job leaving school was working for a co-op!). When I saw that like-minded people were already over here I decided to take the plunge myself, so here I am :) : raretrack.uk/2017/hi-im-just-j

My just broke out of her cage and peed and pooped everywhere and knocked over stuff in my little rabbit room. When I discovered this, she was lounging inside her cage, relaxed and pleased, basking in the sunshine of her chaos. Sometimes I wonder about the morality of keeping animals, but then I see how content they appear to be in my care. What do you all think about keeping ?

Any recommendations on who to follow for techy news, programming, physics, space, etc.? Thanks all.

If you stay absolutely still, the eclipse won't be able to see you, and you'll be safe.

I like the idea of corraling all the into one instance, a bit like the instance dedicated to bots. Obviously unenforceable, but it would be funny. Just a bunch of talking to each other all day

First time on the fediverse and I'm happy I found a cool experiment like social.coop.

I came here to network with people of like minds. Currently working a wage job and getting my feet wet in a bit of activism.

@LeoSammallahti DM me the name and I can check - it appears all the most recent folks have been approve - if there's an issue, I re-send the invite.

First discussion of 's was great, so we're keeping at it! Next month's book is by the guy @TheGibson might or might not be...

Currently voting on month three - thanks to all the who helped build out our list a month or so back... :)

@mattcropp That seems like a good rate rule of thumb to me. Always give investors the ability to choose a lower or zero rate.

@mattcropp But at root the rate is a sales proposition and you have to meet your customers where they're at (after conditioning their expectations).

@mayel While there's a philosophical argument for it, functionally, I don't necessarily think no interest is optimal for maximizing the capital mobilized by a campaign. Someone who might be willing to put $1k into a campaign at inflation, might be willing to put in $10k at inflation + 1%, so trying to suss out the sweet spot where a community campaign can maximize community capital while undercutting the returns of extractive lenders.
