Oh, I should mention: I am currently a freelance Django developer, but I'm *very* interested in finding a few like-minded folks to build a development co-op.
Especially interested in building secure and/or federated versions of the items on this list: https://dymaxion.org/essays/pleasestop.html

Turns out governments can just write a big blank check and make money appear out of thin air.
Turns out most of the shit we were getting paid fuck all to do was pointless busy work all along.
Turns out the people doing the most important work are the ones getting paid the least.
Turns out they can house the homeless overnight if they have enough motivation.
Turns out they can just cancel evictions and rent hikes.
Its very interesting to see what is considered a "crisis" and what is not.
Strangers are not enemies, now is not the time to grow hostile, now is the time to grow compassionate. If we don't stick together now, and make sure our neighbors aren't going hungry or being evicted, then the crisis will be so much worse than it will have been otherwise.
Keep your distance, but don't treat your fellow humans like aliens. Be kind.
