@Matt_Noyes It's true MX Linux is really smooth. I love it. Thank you for the encouragement!

Thank you @michel_slm @Jon_Envisioneer, Noah Hall, @ntnsndr and @Matt_Noyes for posting in WeCo last week.

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 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.

If you were choosing a governance system for an online community, what would you prefer?

a) a Creative Commons-like small number of pre-designed options

b) an App Store-like menu of countless options to mix and match

Asking for medlabboulder.gitlab.io/communityrule

The proposal has just passed to migrate to Platform6.coop as our fiscal host! loomio.org/d/pwSKx07l/switchin

Thanks @Graham_Mitchell @mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @LeoSammallahti for your help in advancing this project.

I just saw that now supports single sign on. Any possibility that we could integrate the sign-in with social.coop sign-in? help.loomio.org/en/user_manual @wu_lee @mattcropp

After some hiccups, just got MX Linux running on an old Dell Optiplex and am really happy with it, coming from Xubuntu. Glad to be one step closer to ol Debian.

So excited to have @BiellaColeman and David Bowie speaking to us tonight in Boulder with @MEDLabBoulder @CUBoulderCMCI

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). sandstorm.io/news/2020-02-03-r

Wait, is contenteditable="true" really a thing?

Posting it here first: A bare-bones MVP of CommunityRule, a toolkit for community governance: medlabboulder.gitlab.io/commun

E.g, a Contributor Covenant for governance.

Any favorite guides for starting small-ish co-ops? Asking for a friend.

Who is in charge of member on boarding now? A friend tried to join and hasn't heard anything. @Matt_Noyes @mattcropp @wu_lee @emi

Anyone know of a good default template for democratic governance for online communities? Like 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 and big Finnish coops is that the management wants members to participate more - it's the members who are reluctant!

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.
