My wife and I currently take no income and we are still injecting money into the business, every month and have cut jobs that the community desperately needs and personally are working more hrs. After consultation with experienced café owners and members of the community itself, who may I add commented several times our prices were to low, we reluctantly bumped them up.
Greetings all, I'm wondering if there any Digital marketers/PR persons here on social.coop who have tested strategies that do not require the use of the aptly named Siren servers. My wife and I launched a Community Café in the district we live in and is one of the most deprived in Berlin. We have a number of long-term goals for it, one being the conversion to a cooperative to ensure it remains a community asset in the future.
social.coop has been bumped to 2.1.3, which includes the new invite system. Hopefully, this goes some way to solving the ongoing onboarding issues.
Apologies, for the extended time to do this.... Unfortunately, there were a number of hoops we had to jump through, which long-term need to be addressed with Mastodon dev's to avoid further protracted upgrades.

I'm calling out for anyone on social.coop from the Germany co-op movement.
#Resonate is hq'd in Ireland, but our operations are based in Berlin (Founder and development team are there).
Interested to know we can get any support - particularly for a few board members we have there. :)
Caroline Savery (@care_save here on social.coop) has written a major series of essays on consciousness and collective action titled *Transmuting the Trumpocalypse: Reclaiming Power in a Memetic Warzone*, which we’ve just published on Metapsychosis.com
We'd love to have sensitive, critical, and co-operative readers —who could also add some thoughtful commentary in our forum.
Please check out the page and if you feel so moved, join the conversation...and toot widely!
Going to be an interesting read — SEC report on the 2016 DAO("Slock.IT)ICO.
Thanks for the recognition @ntnsndr @ the Singularity conf.
Very encouraging for us : )
The world happens in language, which is why writing is a fundamental art. A scientific truth or tech innovation only *means* what it does through the stories we tell ourselves about it.
Our world is a meta-fiction composed of realities that must be interpreted—and if you don't give your reality an interpretation, then someone else will.
How fiction works is thus essential to our meaning-making and world-building in general, and it's important for everyone to become good writers and readers!
