Ever wonder who keeps the SC lights on? Who updates SC software? Who responds when something goes wrong and our beloved instance goes dark?

Tech Admin Ops Team needs you.

Nominations are now open for (2) Coordinator, (2) Critical Infrastructure Maintenance Developer, and (1-10) Project Developer positions.

#socialcoop business : yes you

Well for the past year it's been two dedicated volunteers (@mayel @vmatekole ) but it's time we make it a team effort.

Friends, we're finally ready for you. Over some months now, I've had the pleasure of supporting co-op entrepreneur Greg Brodsky in the development of a new kind of accelerator just for co-ops.

Start.coop is officially open for applications for the inaugural class. If you know someone who would be interested in applying for $10,000 in cash plus mentorship, they can learn more here: start.coop/press-releases/

social.coop is looking for volunteers for its admin ops team:

I think it will be an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other co-op members as well as learn how platform cooperatives work at a very practical level. See you there?

@fardog @christianbundy, thanks for helping with Thursday's outage - any chance you'd sign up for the tech ops team as per the polls on this loomio thread?

I've been trying to document the actual jobs that need doing here, and I suspect the first task will be doing more of this:

github.com/wu-lee/social-coop-

(Will move this to git.coop when we have access.)

I’m bored.

Let’s change the world.

Or we could just watch a show on Netflix.

Beware of any ideology or movement that demands purity or perfection.

At best they will just fail.

At worst they become totalitarian.

More likely they’ll just make things worse.

Well at least hinder things from getting better by discarding ideas, people, and contributions that may incrementally improve conditions but aren’t deemed radically pure enough.

politics | the middle 

You might disdain the middle.

You might hold the middle accountable for it’s complacency on a host of injustices.

But the middle matters.

Where the middle goes the power goes.

The middle isn’t the center it’s the uncongealed heart of the system.

For things to get better you must move the middle.

For the left it’s arduous slow work.

For the right it’s simple. The middle is moved through fear. It’s most responsive, susceptible to fear.

Fight fear.

#socialcoop business/your voices are needed 

Many are suffering from attention fatigue however...

Amongst the many splendid things happening on SC Loomio is a push to provide relief for the amazing tech volunteers (@mayel @vmatekole) who set up and kept our infrastructure running for over a year!

Even if it's not your jam please join the Tech WG for long enough to see all that goes into the tech side and to show support for or join the next wave of tech volunteers.

Tech Admin Ops Team/SC Business 

Okay we finally have a Tech Admin Ops Team formation proposal up.

Please weigh in. If you aren't part of the Tech Working Group already please join if it suits your fancy.

You’re damned if you do. Damned if you don’t.

Well at least that takes you being damned out from consideration.

Put your faith in process because people are invariably biased and inconsistent.

Put your faith in people because process is never without failures and routinely go out of date.

After all, even the best processes are designed and maintained by people.

Hey all you social coopeteers!

A working CoC is finally up for member wide vote. So far only 20 members have weighed in. WHAT SAY YOU?

And for bonus points if you hate this version CONGRATULATIONS!!! you have been nominated to spearhead the next iteration.

Choosing to opt out from a generally toxic and/or useless conversation can speak volumes to one's integrity more than having the last word would.

For all the potential of online connection place still matters.

If you live or have deep connections to where an abundance of resources in knowledge, funding (and most important) motivated likeminded colalborators reside you get greater access to those opportunities.

If you do not you do not. Period. No matter how many times you tweet or toot @ them.

For development in the U.S. it's NYC.

For progressive coop development in general it's Oakland.

So this is awesome. Anyone at PCC know how much (or if any) of those funds will go towards helping develop and launch specific platform coops?

Say like a cooperatively owned competitor to Google owned Youtube?

toddler parenting #4 

Don’t get me wrong I love having a baby and a toddler.

Watching them experience new things every day, some difficult, some easy, makes you re-evaluate the hardened set ways you’ve come to look at life.

But for the love of god is it too much to ask for 5 minutes alone time in the bathroom without one of them screaming bloody murder or the other one banging on the door asking if whether you are “pooing or peeing?’
