@Matt_Noyes It's true MX Linux is really smooth. I love it. Thank you for the encouragement!
I have donated 5$ to Social Coop as a result.
Please keep posting, we plan to bring another online community called "cryptoleftists" to the site next week with another community grant :).
WeCo is a #platformcoop replacement for Reddit. If you are a member of a Social Coop, we donate 1$ to Social Coop for every week that you have posted or commented there.
Really insightful interview with @benvickers_ on @unmonastery, time, space, and rules: https://www.e-flux.com/architecture/digital-x/260389/rules-and-rhythms/
I just saw that #Loomio now supports single sign on. Any possibility that we could integrate the sign-in with social.coop sign-in? https://help.loomio.org/en/user_manual/groups/integrations/ @wu_lee @mattcropp
Just started a new thread: "Should Social.coop start a DAO?" https://www.loomio.org/d/jf8uA4Wn/should-social-coop-start-a-dao-
Ooh, super excited to see action happening with @sandstormIO! An amazing project. Maybe I'll re-up my subscription (especially if they adopt a co-op model). https://sandstorm.io/news/2020-02-03-reviving-sandstorm
Posting it here first: A bare-bones MVP of CommunityRule, a toolkit for community governance: https://medlabboulder.gitlab.io/communityrule/
E.g, a Contributor Covenant for governance.
@ntnsndr would add that low member participation isn't always due to managerial capture or lack of commitment to values.
My small experience with #platformcoops and big Finnish coops is that the management wants members to participate more - it's the members who are reluctant!
#platformcoop folks shouldn't be uncritical cheerleaders, but there's sometimes unnecessary criticism towards big coops - such as claims (not based on empirical research) that they are no different from other big firms.
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
