Glad to be here!
We're working on growing our client base. At the moment we're running an ad campaign with ResearchGate. I'd like to start a parallel campaign reaching out directly to academic departments—we should identify those departments with some kind of interest or commitment to worker coops or alternative economics?

I’ve been fiddling with a technique to draw a variety of faces with a similar fashion sense and phenotypes.

The theory is, if I can make a simple technique for generating a wide number of interchangeable halves of faces I can dynamically generate thousands of unique “characters” from a few dozen component pieces in a really lofi way; which makes it possible to co-create subcultures in a fictional universe.

Designing for remixability, so to speak.

The recent submission of worker coop bill to the Japanese parliament is so historic. Here's the English summary: jwcu.coop/houseika/?p=1284

@mattcropp @GuerillaOntologist

Having established #coops help shift the risk and resources needed to launch new cooperatives in exchange of making a return from the potential future surplus is something we need more of.

Ideally no coop would ever need that, but as long as there are coops that do, they should be given more opportunities to access such funding.

Eyyy, so to introduce myself.

I'm a minimalist and I like keeping simple things simple.

Been doing web dev for over ten years and I try to avoid dependencies whenever possible. Vanilla CSS with some JavaScript that's lean is better than any framework.

Code itself is technical debt. Less code is less debt.

Hobbies include laying on my couch thinking I should be more productive, writing long winded essays, staring at my always growing pile of books, and trying to find fellow humans online.

Apertium is very cool. Maintained by a bunch of linguists. My understanding is that Apertium is also a bit qualitatively different.. being more rules based.

Also, Apertium, a FLOSS project, has been supported by Google summer of code. Perhaps someone can give some insight on that?

@tinfoil_hat yes, Scihub opens access to a lot of research papers directly. Researchgate, Academia.edu are a repository, but also a communication and networking system, where researchers share projects, let others know they are reading papers, etc. I'm looking for an open source, platform coop version of that kind of thing, I don't know if it exists.

Hey all, I'm looking for alternatives to Researchgate.net / Academia.edu

Anyone aware of , respecting, academic networking sites/systems? Perhaps a group within Mastodon network?
