Platform Cooperativism.
This movement has been coalesced over 4 years of events led by Trebor Scholz and Nathan Schneider and sponsored by the New School in NYC. The last two events being:
http://digitallabor.org
http://platformcoop.net


I got involved with Platform Cooperativism as a speaker and I spoke last in NYC at this event:
http://platformcoop.net/participants/micky-metts

I presented at the event on the nuts and bolts of my coop - how we are structured and earn $ and how we get paid etc. (my segment is on the timeline @ 50:00)
http://livestream.com/internetsociety/platformcoop/videos/105663835
and I also speak in an interview at the conference:
https://vimeo.com/150036963

Another interview at the Platformcoop conference with me and Janelle Orsi (a lawyer with http://theselc.org) is featured on the Laura Flanders show http://www.lauraflanders.com/?video=MQaY3cONV7g

I also have a chapter in a forthcoming book on Platform Cooperativism and I am involved in discussions on how to start/help/continue in building the platforms we need to own.
Your voice is welcome and needed!

Here is the start of a list of platform projects in progress now:

Platformcoop Cooperativism

  1. 1. Building the tools for the future
  2. 2. It is hard to convince people that it matters what code runs on their devices, in their bodies, and for services they use from the cloud. Richard Stallman has been working on this for decades. I have this 50 minute presentation and more things to cover, so here's a scary picture.
  3. 3. Here a hacked jeep was driven into a ditch. "Computers and the Internet are everywhere and the world is increasingly made of them." - Cory Doctrow
  4. 4. Dries Buytaert, http://buytaert.net/winning-back-the-open-web Winning back the open web
  5. 5. Tech co-ops are usually development shops that build customized tools using technology. Platforms are the tools used by the public, members or anonymous users.
  6. 6. TechWorker.coop What is it?
  7. 7. ● Collaboration opportunity: organizing the larger network for greater awareness, co-marketing, referrals, etc. ● Collaboration opportunity: identifying collaboration opportunities between individuals and coops, or among coops (hiring/joining/time-sharing, overflow work) ● Collaboration opportunity: skill sharing/training ● Collaboration opportunity: Hacker News for co-ops--a news aggregation community collecting articles and soliciting questions Collaboration Opportunities for Cooperative Development
  8. 8. Drupal and Coops The Drupal community is an excellent model of cooperation in action. What are some examples of cooperation that exist within your community? http://drupal.org And the Drupal community - http://groups.drupal.org
  9. 9. Platform Cooperativism This movement has been coalesced over 4 years of events sponsored by the New School in NYC. The last two events being: http://digitallabor.org http://platformcoop.net
  10. 10. The idea of platform cooperativism has been spreading around the world. Trebor Sholz's primer - http://platformcoop.net/platform-cooperativism-by-trebor-scholz is being translated into Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Portuguese.
  11. 11. http://platformcoop.net/participants/micky-metts I presented at the event on the nuts and bolts of my coop - how we are structured and earn $ and how we get paid etc. (my segment is on the timeline @ 50:00) http://livestream.com/internetsociety/platformcoop/videos/10566383 and I also speak in an interview at the conference: https://vimeo.com/150036963 Another interview at the Platformcoop conference with me and Janelle Orsi (a lawyer with http://theselc.org) is featured on http://www.lauraflanders.com/?video=MQaY3cONV7g
  12. 12. A book about Platform Cooperativism is due to be published soon, I am one of the authors with a chapter in a forthcoming book on the subject and I am involved in discussions on how to start/help/continue in building the platforms we need to own. An example would be an Uber owned by the drivers. Your voice is welcome and needed! Here is the start of a list of platform projects: http://internetofownership.net/wiki/platforms The Book
