If you're working in a participatory organization of more than ~8 people, I highly recommend #fishbowl 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.
The people of #Bougainville voted 98% in favor of full independence from Indonesia in Nov/Dec last year https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Bougainvillean_independence_referendum
Never heard of the place? Watch #TheCoconutRevolution for a 50 minute dive into the super inspiring native-led, deeply-green struggles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Sl8KJDOqK4&bpctr=1580823726
(p.s. the coconut really has a star role #coconutPower)
Thanks to the 29 people who took part in my poll 👍 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 😅
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 mietshäuser 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 #racism 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)
#endegelaende is gonna be busy tomorrow...
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 http://inter4.aaschool.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/element-1.jpg
(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 🤷 )

Do not think that this will sink BoJo! It could, but he'll spin it around like "I did all I could, brought a nice deal to the table but those other MPs blocked me and the will of the people"
1 day til the next extinction rebellion! ⏰ Starting Monday 7th October there will mobilizations in over 60 cities 🌐 https://rebellion.earth/international-rebellion/
I know a lot of Mastodoners are critical of #XR, 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 😺
