Hey all! Awesome call today, with *11 attendees* representing *6 co-ops*
(and some indie folks) from across *Argentina, Canada, Germany, and USA* :)

Lots of notes this week: https://pad.drutopia.org/p/show-tell

Thanks to mlncn and clayton for supporting on note-taking, and clayton for
stepping in to facilitate! And I hope you're feeling better soon, Micky,
and will be back next week!

Also, I can't believe I forgot to mention this, but wanted to share a tool
for *visualizing Sociocratic circles:* *Peerdom. *It's built by a software
dev shop called NothingAgency: https://peerdom.org

Explorable demos here: https://nothing.peerdom.org/ |
https://demo.peerdom.org | https://team.peerdom.org

I've had a call with them, and they are really *interested to service the
co-op space*, and even built features that support users seeing
connections/circles outside the normal company boundaries (e.g., seeing
connected circles in other co-ops). They seem like an interesting org (half
the source code is open source fwiw), and I'd highly recommend booking a
demo call with them. The platform seems worth paying for.

*The company that built it, NothingAgency*, have explored *converting their
company to a co-op* (as they are very democratic anyhow), but last time
they tried to work toward that, the deliberative process made them burn
through some savings and they had to abort the conversation for the moment.
I feel that *their meeting other successful and vibrant co-ops would be
good* for their own growth trajectory as well :)


Q: Why is this email [hopefully] five sentences or less? | A:

*NOTE* that my emails are delayed
from arriving in my inbox until 9am daily (Eastern Time). If urgent, please
use another way of getting in touch. #slowwebmovement
