I'm honored that my friends trusted me to take their save-the-date photos. Here are some from the shoot yesterday. If you know anyone in VT or in New England looking to get married, I'm available to take pics. :) #theWorkshop

Soft opening for our brewery project had 3x the attendance I was expecting. Hopefully a good omen!

Fun night in !

I am unable to find a single co-op in the U.S. that provides fiscal hosting to help other co-ops get started. If anyone knows of one (or wants to start one) I'd love to hear from you. I feel like this *has* to be a thing.

Colleague, mentor, and friend, Dr. Jessica Gordon Nembhard has been sued by a former member of the cooperative community. She is the author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice. Even a baseless lawsuit inflicts great harm. Please donate to defray her substantial legal expenses.

And please pass the link.

People making jokes about the Facebook services going down make me sick. Anyone who was using an Oculus headset at the time is currently trapped in VR, and if they die there then they die in real life.

Does anyone know a trick-taking game with a more childish design than traditional playing cards, similar to what Uno does for Eights?

It's that time of the year again when the ancient oak tree in my yard gifts us enormous delicious Hen of the Wood/maitaki mushrooms.

Hey brain trust. Does anyone know of a good case study of the conversion of a consumer co-op into a consumer-worker hybrid.

I'm aware of a few multi-stakeholder food co-ops like Weaver Street Market, but don't know if their ownership structure was from the start, or if they changed it from a consumer co-op?

Religion 

The Satanic Temple was definitely a highlight.

Left with a greater appreciation for the tactic of calling the bluff of magical theism in forcing religion into greater accomodation with modernity.

Wondering if there would be enough of a critical mass of and solidarity economy folks in to spin up a co-op co-working space under the aegis of our local real estate co-op...
