introduction 

: Hi! I spend a lot of time thinking about alternative (modern; legal; hybrid; non-hierarchical; cooperative; empowered; equitable; sustainable; collaborative; impermanent; impactful) organizational structures through which folks can make the world a better place.

I also make music, write on my blog, play with video art, and play games with friends.

Nice to meet you! 👋

Gave up my lease in NY, headed to couchsurf with friends on the US West Coast 🏄‍♂️ before seeing old friends in the Midwest next month. Then, who knows??

Happy 25th Anniversary to The Internet Archive.

The Wayback Machine has saved me many times from the perils of a dead webpage or lost domain.
The Live Music Archive has kept me inspired many times and the new Internet Archive Scholar has already helped me find resources for my studies.

Thanks for being the Internet’s Library for 25 years!

Finished _The Disposessed_ today! What an amazing read. Already one of my favorite books I’ve encountered. As one reviewer said - not a word out of place 💚🖤

I’m going to be learning and working a lot more in the open source world starting next month via Open Source Collective, specifically around the issues of funding of projects and compensation for maintainers

I’ll ask this question in a more focused way later, but I wanted to ask folks in this community - what are some of the big problems you see?

Hi, I like to read tax regulations. (I’m great at parties.)

at OCF we host a bunch of interesting US-based community projects, from community fridges to open source projects to timebanking, mutual aid, gardens, education, and more. Today we posted our strategy moving forward, centering solidarity <3 "Solidarity as our Guiding Principle" blog.opencollective.com/solida

it's highly creepy when people refer to outsourcing stuff to underpaid and invisible overseas workers as "automation."

Despite Deere's lobbying, patronizing and FUD, the right to repair has - finally - triumphed.

Today, the Biden administration announced an executive order directing the Department of Ag and the FTC to develop R2R rules for agricultural equipment!

The fight's not over yet. The devil is in the details, those rules the FTC and Ag develop.

I will be speaking about at the London SF Reading group on the 26th. I was thinking about focusing on the arrow that points from fiction to real-world. Looking forward :glenda:

I would post what I’m working on here like everyone else but it’s not really that interesting for other people. It’s stuff like: “Digging into the IRS grant making regulations. Wow, what BS!” … “Ah, breakthrough! Grants are just reimbursements but in reverse!” …or maybe “Damn, my working boards as cooperative governance idea won’t work. I just learned about the 49% rule that limits the number of interested directors :(“
