@samtoland It seems like USAmerican credit unions have a pretty good national network for ATMs and such. The one very convenient thing that the National Megabank offers is that deposits become available more quickly.

Hi Fediverse 👋
let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial
Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔
As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂
Blood money is fine with us, says GitLab: Vetting non-evil customers is ‘time consuming, potentially distracting’

"For the last year, employees at Kickstarter have been organizing with OPEIU Local 153, under the banner of Kickstarter United. On October 2, 2019, after garnering a majority of support within the company, Kickstarter United formally asked CEO Aziz Hasan to recognize the union. He has failed to do so."
What is social.coop? Who are we (it's members)? How do we contribute?
We've started a thread on loomio, where we will post one question every couple of weeks that will help us to get to know each other as members, with the objective of using this understanding of each other, our motivations and expectations to launch the next phase of social.coop.
Third question: "I would be a bigger social.coop fan if..." (in 500 characters or less)

If Sanders selling point against Warren is that he supports rent controls and she doesn't, that is a huge strategic error. I love both, but this makes me lean towards Warren. Glad I can't vote and have to choose between the two.
Rent controls cause decline in housing supply and quality. You need to increase the supply, and a good way to do so is to tax the value of the land. There is no economist who disagrees with this. Yet no democrat advocates it? Why?
Does anyone have any content (with appropriate licence) re: situation in #Rojava that I can repurpose for a blog for our #foodcoop? We want to get something out in our next newsletter to make our members aware of what's going on.
There wouldn't be a huge amount of awareness within our co-op at present (probably not enough yet for us to attempt any substantive action in solidarity... yet).
Thanks in advance
Got a message from a licensed HVAC contractor in Florida.
He wants to start his own worker coop and needs support, especially with the legal side of stuff.
I advised him to contact Democracy At Work, SolidFund and Worker Cooperative email list.
Let's help this guy out! More orgs or people he can contact? Anyone interested & capable of helping out?
#introduction I'm William and I'm a software developer. I just read @ntnsndr 's book and am very curious about the movement. I'm very interested in co-op governance for open source projects, and ways that co-ops could promote humane and non-exploitative technology use. I'm starting to get involved in local co-ops, too. I'm also happy to try to help out with software stuff, if I can.
Boosting ain't endorsing. :)
Into the future of law, #digitalrights and an auld cycle.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
