If you're working in a participatory organization of more than ~8 people, I highly recommend formar for bigger topics where there is a division of opinion or expertise.

Inner circle: talking
Outer circle: listening
Switch circle: when you want and there's a space

It doesn't put pressure on less involved people to say stuff (like rounds do) and it doesn't go too chaotic like a big discussion. The format is self-moderating too.

Thanks to the 29 people who took part in my poll πŸ‘ Results are interesting, although the format restrictive -> results not clear!

I wonder if the 1x voters work in places that are 1x? I would be interested to see one, but I dont think I'd honestly be willing to do the work to set one up πŸ˜…

Most votes for > 10x. I know two relatively small tech co.s that work fine with that.

Almost 40% were > 100x, which implies a lot of ppl willing to work for a giant... If their friend started it & 'ethical'

I found a 'financial times' while passing through London. It would be better renamed 'greed cult'. Not one redeeming story. These people will make us destroy our world if we let them

We need to take the things we need off the market: decapitalizing = commoning. Check out 'asset-locking' as a way of legally enshrining this. The mietshΓ€user syndikat do a great job of commoning housing in Germany.

We also need to find ways of transferring these unbelievable sums of money to people that need them.

"The most meaningful act of resistance to systemic would be for its primary beneficiaries to seek ways to *give of themselves* . . . rather than attempting to blame, coerce, cajole or expropriate *from others* under the auspices of anti racism."

(The first paper I found when searching 'effective antiracism', its quite readable and thought provoking... Maybe even action provoking)

I don't know how I ended up on this page of experimental architecture, but I'm glad to have found how many turrets and cloches there were in the Maginot Line inter4.aaschool.ac.uk/wp-conte

(The Maginot Line is a huge line of defensive structures the French built to deter German invasion after WW1. Sadly for the French, the Nazis decided to go around it 🀷 )

I know a lot of Mastodoners are critical of , rightly so. I'm not gonna defend everything that's been done under the brand. Yet it's mostly good!

I warmly recommend everyone to try for themselves: you'll meet lovely humans and won't accidentally find yourself getting arrested.

So come on! I'll be at Berlin if anyone wants to catch up 😺

Great turnout and atmosphere (no pun intended) at the today!

And what a diverse crew : (ofc) but also vegans coopers and so many more. Notable union presence which I was very happy about.
