I think the Social Coop About page is good but I was wondering if we could use a bit more welcoming expression in our about page than "You are most welcome to request an account!".
I think something like "Join the discussion now and become a co-owner!" or something like that.
If you have alternative phrasings I would be happy to hear!
Hi all, great to be here.
Extremely excited to support the Platform Cooperativism Japan (PCJ) Consortium, a new sister organization of the PCC at The New School in NYC (www.platform.coop), that connects the stakeholders of the emerging platform economy ecosystem to create synergies in the pursuit of increased shared value, ownership, and governance.
Let's connect, we even use still FB too www.facbook.com/platformcoopjp
I would like to see more documentaries about the life of female musicians. There's a few good ones like the one about Amy Winehouse, but why not other more uplifting ones?
For contrast, I watched the Andy Summers documentary, and it's a pretty good one, mostly autobiographical because he's luckily still alive.
But you never see that done for female artists, only a a sort of eulogy after Amy is dead.
@douginamug @mattcropp @h maybe this link will help explain it
@mattcropp The Faircoin 2 whitepaper?
I kind of assumed this was the base of earlier discussions.
This is basically a visual tour of late stage capitalism: massive unemployment, corporate (cyber) armies, complete surveillance, marketing-induced nostalgia (though that DeLorean sure makes one's heart beat a tad faster) and mass poverty drawing hordes of desperate people into a merciless rat-race.
WeCollective, a user-owned coop replacement for Reddit with polling tools and better categorization features is having a vote on a new feature:
"In poll discussion threads, show as the top comment a comment posted by a person that voted different from you, but that was most upvoted by people who voted like you."
This would reduce echo in the echochamber.
Everyone can register for free and everyone has 1 vote on decisions. Oh yeah, we just turned opensource!
Nakamoto wanted to create a system for #payments that would circumvent governments, bankers, and corporations. Instead, Bitcoin is now a get-rich-quick scheme that retains none of the exciting, anarchist features it proposed and has created a secondary #economy with financial shenanigans that mirror the ones that led to the global financial crisis."
