June 2018 Sheffield local magazine article enthusing about co-operation, as against capitalism. Mention given to Webarchitects (disclaimer: it was written by a member of Webarchitects, me!)
We (specifically @chris and myself) are in the Times this morning: “The co-op movement is only beginning to see the potential of open source software to strengthen its values of democracy, equality and autonomy”. Courtesy of the excellent Hazel Sheffield who writes about the co-operative/social economy for various papers and magazines.
Good work both, I came across it in the paper this morning. Hazel S is doing a job for us!
Didn’t have you down as a Times reader Sion. More left wing that the Guardian these days I guess… Everyone should check out and support https://twitter.com/hazelsheffield / https://www.hazelsheffield.com/ - she’s doing a great job of reporting on actually-new things happening in the collaborative economy.
can someone with a Times account save it out as a PDF so we can all have a read?
Following is a jpeg image of the paper version of the article, I don’t have a PDF:
A great piece. I’d be very interested to learn of any outcomes from this article.
I didn’t need to pay, just registered for an account and then had access.
+1 her http://farnearer.org/ project is awesome. Going to be meeting up with her soon to discuss collaborating on systematically spreading good stories about co-ops etc
This is off-topic, but um, not if you include articles like this (subtitle is “Trump, Putin, Erdogan and Duterte are unpalatable demagogues in many ways but at least they get things done”):
The dependencies I needed to install on Debian Stretch for
apt install atomicparsley libmojolicious-perl libperlio-eol-perl \ libutf8-all-perl libxml-libxml-perl
LiVES (LiVES is a Video Editing System) appears to be the easiest to use video editor that is packaged by Debian, the clip I have edited out is from frame 59708 to 63781, the audio is somewhat out of sync, it has been uploaded to the wiki:
If anyone else would like to do a better edit I could upload the full episode (1.6G as a MP4) somewhere.
Thanks for this! Always bringing CoTech into the convo
I use OpenShot which is great and I assume relatively easy to install on Debian too (I didn’t have any problems installing it on Ubuntu)
The wonderful Hazel Sheffield strikes again. Here is her article about CoTech members Founders and Coders in The Independent:
And another Hazel Sheffield article covering an app made by Founders and Coders alumni:
(it’s been cross-posted here if you want to read without signing-up to The Independent https://bioreports.net/twine-the-app-helping-community-businesses-prove-their-worth/ )
Co-op News also covered the launch of https://www.democraticjobs.coop/ (which I’m pretty sure was knocked together by a CoTech member, right?)
It was indeed - the fabulous Glowbox - you do a great job of spotting every single mention of us - you should go into media monitoring!!
Here is another from Co-op News today, it is about Code-operative and CoTech is mentioned at the end:
