sorry I haven't been using you oh little coop. all the followers build up on one instance and then it has so much more incentive to use it.

One thing I feel is a big contributor to burnout is being too focused on the "anti" aspect of left struggle. Being anti-capitalist, anti-racist, etc. Obviously, being those things is good, but defining yourself too heavily by being the antithesis of the status quo is an exhausting endeavor. Try to direct more energy to the post-capital restructuring, and anchor yourself on what you believe in as well. Universal access to material security, education, healthcare, etc. A better world is coming!
Hey social coop are doing alright?
social.coop is looking for volunteers for its admin ops team:
I think it will be an opportunity to meet and collaborate with other co-op members as well as learn how platform cooperatives work at a very practical level. See you there?
I didn't realize you (@vmatekole) are in Berlin till I just saw your post about running a cafe here. Would love to come check out your cafe. I was looking through the Loomio cause I was wondering what was going on with the tech ops team thing and then realized I hadn't interacted with you over here in the fediverse yet. are there other #socialcoop folks in #berlin you know of?
would be willing to pay someone to install Pleroma for me for a custom instance linked to my domain wake.st if anyone is familiar with that process

#Romania: first licences for community radios

We have servers run by MIT, CCC, Pixiv, Dwango, La Quadrature and various pirate parties. We need more stuff like that. Imagine a Wikimedia server. Or Canonical.
@defnotarobot was some good stuff in here https://discourse.joinmastodon.org/t/posting-automatically-from-a-rss-feed/1012/10
@dansup When you take VC, you sell the company. No ifs, no buts. We keep getting surprised as the sale usually just takes several years to complete. C’est la “exit”.
This is why VC investment is incompatible with sustainable businesses with social missions. And why I keep harping on about how we must support projects that benefit the commons from the commons (https://ar.al/notes/encouraging-individual-sovereignty-and-a-healthy-commons/)
@Gargron @osoitz maaan I feel like I have changed my mind about those terms every single day for the last 8 years. Maybe we need to push for "Libre" so it becomes part of the English language. "Free" will _always_ be confusing as it can be taken as is, whereas people who see "Libre" for the first time will need to investigate rather than just going with the first definition thy can think of. Maybe now is a good time, given the visibility LibreOffice is giving it.
Kind of ironic that the Github CEO signs off his blog post announcing Microsoft's acquisition using his nickname: @defunkt.
I mean, if that's not a death certificate, what is?
