Nayra - front and back: timeless
	* started in 2015
	* 6 person
	* Mix of art and technology 
	* still defining what they want to, looking for a perfect match for each one 
	* topics: functional programming, machine learning, data science, art, interactive webpage (for ken wilber)

Argentina has a federation of IT coops (FACTTIC)
	* 22 cooperatives

Cooperation between cooperatives 
	* Camplight - another coop 
		* Design studio needed creative coding capability camplight didn't have 
		* camplight gets commission for client facing work (only at the beginning) 
	* sharing jobs between diff cooperatives 
	* exchanging experiences

staff augmentation (extra contractor) 
Japanese coops aren't allowed to do staff augmentation
temporary workers are complicated because its considered a loop hole to degrade working standards. neoliberal attack.

in argentina, also can't do staff augmentation with your coop. you as a coop can sell the services of staff augmentation

difficult to scale to 1000 person cooperative, align values 

concern with coop law in japan 
- it will lessen the value of things. once there's a form, there's no need for communal values
