@aral I really wish that I could spend all my knowledge, time and energy on floss softwares as a web dev. It tried it both individually and collectively but I couldn't even pay my very cheap rent. So I'm back again working to death to another meaningless start-up.
It's sad to see that "we can" but we can't.
@sexybiggetje Actually I always hated play store as it was putting icons of all applications I install. I prefer to put only things I use most to my home screen.
"What defines a solidarity enterprise is the presence of unity converted into an economic force, not just the mechanical adoption of a cooperative model of organization or some other specific type of association."
The popularity of Wikipedia article about #workercoops seems to be going up a lot - last month was by far the best month since records began!
Thanks to leaps forward in web security, the advice to avoid open WiFi is out of date and not applicable to most people anymore. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/01/why-public-wi-fi-lot-safer-you-think
I also wish the environmental movement would celebrate its victories instead of being all-negative all the time.
Like, this: "Deforestation declined a whopping 70% from 2004 to 2012. It has risen modestly since then but remains at one-quarter its 2004 peak."
That's an amazing achievement! Why have I never heard about it? Why aren't we all talking more about what strategies worked so well from 2004-2012 and how to replicate them elsewhere?
Is there a way to block a user in #riot.im ? A bot is inviting me to a room. Once I reject it, it invites again.
The lack of revolutionary potential in most existing co-ops is one of the many reasons why cooperative/collective economic projects should already incorporate an inherently anarchist approach at the founding level, and options for long-term horizontal scalability via federation with politically & structurally compatible projects shouldn't be an afterthought.
Worker co-ops shouldn't be isolated. Instead, they should have the clear potential to be integral parts of a bottom-up needs-based economy.
