Should #SocialCoop be a litigant to restore #NetNeutrality should the vote go through as planned? We might have a unique standing in that our access to our own service could be disrupted by zero-rating, throttling, or exclusive deals between our ISPs and the mega social networks
Starting to doubt #federated #moderation as an adequate solution. What if someone is posting your copyrighted material, or worse damaging material like revenge porn? Blocking them from your view or your instance's view doesn't really solve the problem.
You could pursue legal remedies if the instance is hosted in a country with relevant laws, but that would likely just be an expensive game of whack-a-mole.
A vote on #solidfund if you are a member. https://www.loomio.org/d/2LZPS7Ge/grant-for-co-operative-technologists-cotech-retreat-at-wortley-hall
Hey everyone! I'm new to Mastadon. Is there some sort of parallel to 'hashtags' or interest groups for a particular topic?
The 11th AGM of the #OpenStreetMap Foundation will be on 9th Dec 2017! There will be 2 board seats up for election (no candidates yet)
YET AGAIN the #BTVCC has punted on making a decision on this local telecom privatization fight. Now they're absurdly asking for our #coop to explore a partnership agreement with our publicly traded rival bidder. This seems to be a ploy to justify bringing back previously eliminated bidders. *ugh!*
Interesting radical #workercoop structure hacked out of an #LLC: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxEPzjckFFyUd0RjZEc1VUZIbmptZnFCOWMtTlZlS2JManVV/view?usp=sharing
Hello folks! So happy to become a part of the social.coop community. I'm co-founder of platform co-op #Cosmos and I'm a consultant, educator and facilitator for cooperatives and collectives based in Denver, Colorado, but happy to distance work and travel. I have experience in creative project management, community organizing, and professional writing, among other things. I also contribute to the Colorado Co-ops Study Circle. Please say hi if you'd like to meet me! #introductions 👋🏼 🤗

Moira Weigel invited to Platform Co-op conference in November?
Have you collaborated with other co-ops on projects? If so, how?
I'd especially love to hear examples that involve:
1. Cross-core competency (i.e. a design co-op working with a marketing or engineering co-op)
2. Differences between collaborating on a "revenue positive" project (i.e. billing a client) vs a speculative project (i.e. building a new product)
