Starting to doubt 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.

Would love to see videos of all the presentations in the event!

YET AGAIN the has punted on making a decision on this local telecom privatization fight. Now they're absurdly asking for our 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!*

Hello folks! So happy to become a part of the social.coop community. I'm co-founder of platform co-op 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! 👋🏼 🤗

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)
