I have just returned from Mexico, where I hosted a few workshops with
the Center for Global Justice
WORKSHOP: “How to Switch to Free Software: Email” 4:45-6:45pm Wednesday,
December 4 Biblioteca Publica,
WORKSHOP: “How to Switch to Free Software: Browsers Etc” 2-4pm
Thursday, December 5 Biblioteca Publica,
I also met with some developers and activists to see what there needs
are. There will be a write up on the trip soon.Here is what I found:
1. There is a lack of tech cooperatives in Mexico ( my friend could only
find 5 and will be publishing a blog on his search soon)
2. People are excited about worker owned cooperatives and we learned how
a group of organic farmers were collectivized and the benefits they are
3. There are mostly Agricultural Coops in Mexico, some consumer coops too.
4. Not many networks have a web site.
Suggested conversation: talk about the best methods to grow tech
cooperatives around the world.
My suggestion is to find ways to bridge the tech coop gap in Mexico with
a connection to the coops in Argentina and in the US.
Thanks to Clayton for hosting last Wednesday for the information on
Distributed coops - As it turned out this was discussed in Mexico too!
THANKS!!!! Patcon fopr taking notes!
