Finished reading through the DisCO Elements. It is gorgeous and fun and uplifting, with a high-level manifesto and outlook that I am totally onboard with. And that seems backed up by lots of practical knowledge and research based on daily life in Actually Existing Organisations.
"The development of commons-public partnerships as an alternative to the established public-private, following the Preston and Evergreen models, with DisCOs facilitating:
a. Municipal service provision for local economies.
b. FLOSS-built and open licensed, common-pool civic knowledge
c. Practical workplace education on feminist economics, the commons,
decentralized technology and the ethical market sectors offered by participating DisCOs."
