Everyone, whether you participate in 👻 🕸 🎃 pumpkin carving or not, it's now time to extend it to THE NEW 1st Annual #Mastodon tradition of 🍍PineappOlantern Carving! These are some I made last October in the spirit of @Gargron's https://joinMastodon.org for inspiration. You have 15 days to practice your carving skillz (& Pina Colada drinking 😋🍹) for a 27th-31st reveal. Don't forget to # it: #Art #MastoArt #Mastodon & 🍍#PineappOlantern 🎃 & be careful w that 🔪
@Antanicus Where I was working until recently (more on that later) quite a few people would talk about their impending weekend time off in terms of how much they were planning on drinking.
I don't know what country you are in, but in the UK we have a huge alcohol problem. There are too many people who don't know when to stop. Hearing people go "I can't wait to get drunk tonight!" is scary!
The distribution of say podcasts is similar, but there a number of unique elements that would need to be designed for. The original #resonate system only anticipates these up to a point.
The #Resonate team would love to incorporate more things into our co-op platform - but important that that interested members have realistic costed proposals/strategies.
Anyone heard of #buysmart - an ethical consumption platform?
I reached out to them on birbsite - nudged them in the direction of #platformcoop and they are now in a co-op co-working space, and offering user ownership :) [Though likely they were on that trajectory anyway].
Maybe a story in it? @ntnsndr
@Antanicus @Stoori A logic extension beyond music though is #podcast/s - if this was something people were interested in building alongside / incorporated into Resonate - I have no doubt we'd be interested in collaborating.
But it would require a fair bit of commitment - and a strategy [underserved userbase, revenue model, funding options...]
But definitely if people are interested in developing this within/alongside #Resonate - we can start a convo :)
It takes quite a bit of funds (even with significant open source / volunteer development) to build these platforms.
When you think of potential #platformcoop/s (like a audiobook platform for instance) you first need to think - how are current users underserved by existing solutions - not governance but product.
The #OpenCollective site redesign is looking good! https://medium.com/open-collective/open-collective-v2-is-live-61b7cd3195e3
Hey #SocialCoop'ers, as a newbie I'd like to know you better. What languages you speak/understand/are studying?
And scrap knowledge of a host of other languages.
I haven't had the time to organise one - but (i) I know there are plenty of people interested, (ii) I know some #PlatformCoops that would participate, (iii) I have a venue and (iv) I might have a sponsor...
What I don't have is time haha.
I also set up a meetup page months ago https://www.meetup.com/PlatformCoop-Meetup/
@ntnsndr We've spoken about this - same for our constitution (byelaws in the states I believe).
They are quite dense documents for the layperson.
It is something I personally have an interest in too - but we are a little stretched for resources at the moment... Priority is homepage development and work on the app.
But if you have some good examples to share - or are interested in contributing... :)
