@cadey Well, I couldn't quite keep up with the steps, but I was so grateful to see this. Thank you!
@FreeScholar Can't wait to listen!
Platform co-ops for India! Don't miss it tomorrow at 10am ET. Namya Mahajan will join us for a community hangout. Register for our live Zoom call here and bring your comments and questions! https://tinyurl.com/namyaplatformcoops
This is the first time I've seen a "Share on Mastodon" button on a blog, so I did.
Well worth it. An operating system called TempleOS. And: "This is outsider art." ... "I want to use this blogpost series to break the genius down and separate it out from the insanity, bit by bit."
I just started a thread in the #SocialCoop Loomio on whether and how we might assist in the evolution underway on the platformcoop-discuss email list: https://www.loomio.org/d/ZH1Fdte4/teaming-up-with-platformcoop-discuss-
Some morning joy for you: opera in a @coopitalia grocery store. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLI3NyzwXr
Bonus: Louis Kelso's daughter sent me this.
@Matt_Noyes Gene was also a good enough student of Gandhi to know that economic alternatives were critical.
@Matt_Noyes I think that's accurate. But he did certainly find himself in neoliberal times and opportunities. His major benefactor, Peter Ackerman, is neoliberal through and through. I think Gene had a more expansive view of democracy, but it was convenient to focus on political liberation more than economic liberation.
@Matt_Noyes I did:)

@amikigu great points. I wrote her with some stuff from my experiences on easier self-hosting tools (sandstorm, cloudron, etc).
The idea of a network-wide user limit is interesting for sure.
And definitely Wikipedia is far from perfect. The critique I've been developing is focused on the "do-ocracy" model that privileges those with leisure time.
Everyone on #SocialCoop should be sure to read Alyssa Rosenzweig's fantastic essay on "The Federation Fallacy": https://rosenzweig.io/blog/the-federation-fallacy.html

@tbeckett @mattcropp I would actually be more interested in a coordinated toot session. I think we should build our community using the medium we are building. And it would be easier for some people to attend as it allows screaming babies in the background, etc.
We've had some nice success with that for the ethicaledtech.info project. We start w/ 1/2 hour of video, but the main event is on a hashtag, and it doubles as a recruiting event.
@mattcropp Welcome indeed!!!
@richdecibels image, story, mystery, silence, power, solidarity, communion, the democracy of the dead. Relationship, really.
@ben_hr there are fewer journal articles worth reading and the ideas expect book length attention (whether or not they deserve it)
@tbeckett a natural way to finally monetize the fame accrued promoting co-ops. Tho it kinda looks like a cross between me and Spitzberg.
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
