Welcome, @benjaminroyer !
Caitlin here. I am on Social.Coop. I am on the board of VREC, rhymes with Shrek: the Vermont Real Estate Coop, which is a PREC… in our second year.
I use BBB via Meet.Coop, for a cooperative writing group of speculative fiction about DisCOs: distributed cooperative organizations.
Welcome, @cwaddick, thanks for joining here. Feel free to post a link to your cooperative, and also to share your experience about using meet.coop. For that we have initiated a separate thread “member reports”, where you all may want to share how you use the platform and how meetcoop helps you.
I’m Bob Haugen, part of http://mikorizal.org/ where I work in one way or another on software for supporting solidarity economic systems. (Or as somebody recently said, cooperative-commons economic systems.)
Our work is centered around the https://valueflo.ws/ vocabulary enabling many apps and communities to collaborate with each other economically.
Hi, I’m Lynn Foster, the other part of http://mikorizal.org, with @bhaugen right above. My primary work these days is on Valueflows, mostly with groups who are implementing it, or are interested in doing so.
It’s nice to see friends here, and people I look forward to knowing. And thanks to @mikemh for inviting us directly.
One thing I like a lot about meet.coop is that it wants to be multi-stakeholder. Such a challenge, but really important I think.
I think I never did this? I’m Matt Noyes, here via Social.Coop, which is a Meet.Coop member, where I have been on the community working group ops team. My main work these days is as a live-in family caregiver. I am also active in GEO.Coop, OpenFoodNetwork, local food system stuff, Colorado Solidarity Fund, etc. I am eager to learn from/with you all about how to build viable multi-stakeholder community.
Great to see you here @lynnfoster and @bhaugen Personally I really value your Valueflows perspective and mission, and I also know how much experience of cooperation and digital stuff you can bring to our explorations here. Thanks for making a little space for meet.coop
Hi @mnoyes OK you’re official now I feel that the relationship between meet.coop and social.coop is a significant and helpful one. I also really appreciate your long organiser perspective and skills, so I hope you’ll help keep us on the straight and narrow with our governance and ‘movement education’ intentions. Thanks for hanging in here.

Incubated hereunder is the World Heritage Exchange Trading System (WHETS) https://www.whets.club I look forward to engaging and learning from youall.
Ha! I posted because I got a notification from the list and thought I had forgotten to do something. I am an eager supporter but as you know not in a position to dedicate much time for the next several months. So, if it makes more sense for me not to be in this forum, that’s fine.
Take care, Matt
It always makes sense for a comrade/member to be present in this forum Matt Only reason to be away is if notification traffic gets too heavy? Or switch off notifications. Cheers
Lovely to see you in the commons.hour gathering yesterday Cecilie, so soon after joining. Welcome to the forum and thanks for contributing yesterday. The meeting’s notes and video are now posted here Session#2 discussion - #3 by mikemh
Mi name is Jorge Benet and I work at Cooperativa Tierra Común in Mexico. We give different IT services like web, technical support, digital security consultancy, trainings, etc. I’ve been following meet.coop and i think it’s great. We just got invited by femProcomuns to the next Commons Hour meetup. So see you there.
Nice to meet you all!
Hola Jorge, nice to see you here! Looking forward to meeting you in the commons.hour session in 40 minutes with femProcomuns and others. And of course, if there’s anything you’d like to share or engage in with meet.coop, name it
Hi all! My name is Andi (pronouns she/her). I started with Hypha Workers Co-op last month, and although I’ve met some members already, I wanted to introduce myself here. My background is in digital strategy and research, primarily in the Canadian nonprofit sector. I’m relatively new to the co-op space, so looking forward to learning more about it and participating in future discussions.
Hello everybody, here Luis (he/him) from P2PModels where I work as a developer. I also work in amoved, a small team working in web development trying to engage with the Spanish social economy to empower digital commons and alliances between cooperatives and associations. I also participate since its foundation in a collective vegetable garden (@retomalahuerta) in Madrid, the city I live in.
I’m very interested in digital autonomy and technological sovereignty so if you have interesting thinks to talk about here I am!
I work a lot these days but I’ll try to help as much as I can!
Hi, I’m Daniel from Argentina. I’m a sysadmin at AlterMundi.
I am interested in collaborating, cooperating and learning,
Hi Daniel, we saw that you were in the commons.hour meeting just now, but having problems in audo connection. Thanks for coming, and we hope that at least the discussion was stimulating?
Your connection through Brave browser/PC should in principle have been OK, so I’m sorry but I don’t have any further idea why it wasn’t possible to get audio today.
Perhaps you heard the discussion about collaboration for meet.coop in regional economic development, through local coops, in municipal-commons alliances, and have some thoughts about this in Argentina?
I don’t know but i’m going to look here. I will look into social and solidarity economy initiatives.
