I am here on the recommendation of @chris from WebArch.
I’m a founding member and co-owner of the Tech Support Cooperative. We are a worker co-op based in the US + Canada. We specialize in providing installation and support services to food co-ops running the CORE-POS open-source POS system in their stores. In addition we also provide networking and desktop support, web development, and web design services for a few clients.
Personally, I’m based in Portland, OR and have been active with both consumer and worker co-ops here for almost 15 years. In my other consulting work (outside of the Tech Support Co-op) I am an IT Consultant and Strategist for primarily co-ops and co-op support organizations. So yeah. I’m pretty dang cooperative ;-D
Pleased to be here and hope i can contribute meaningfully to your discussions on this fine web forum you have.
