Is there a meeting today?
Launching right now.
Here, I guess I missed it!
I’m on vacation with family and will not be able to make the call today.
This was a big week though for the Coop and Forum as the dev teams presented a working demonstration of our first application of Community Credentials.
I’m going to drop the link here with the request that you not share further as there may still be bugs to work out and dev resources remain limited.
Still, please do check it. And many many thanks to @KallieMarie for volunteering to be the first artist guinea pig in the lab!
Let’s circle back next week to talk about how services like this might be of value to the community and how the Forum can be a productive place to manage work around these kinds of initiatives.
Come through at the top of the hour. Open agenda today. Any topics. https://meet.jit.si/ResonateCommunity
Topic Suggestion for July 24 Session.
I’ll try to draft a policy for ‘temporary’ registration in the Forum to accommodate non-members. I’m thinking something like a seven-day allowance that is renewable, perhaps 3 times, each with a pitch to join as a member.
I find inviting folks (prospective workers, partners, members) to the Forum is really useful way to introduce them to the community.
I believe we also want to make at least some areas of the forum publicly accessible, help desk, etc.
Policy around a temporary ‘access pass’ would be helpful.
Joining chat at the top of the hour.
Potential Topics: Community Engagement
Temporary pass policy.
Kallie says:What about Student interns?
me says:Intern outreach.
me says:Consider Community Consulting Grants from Historically and Structurally oppressed communities.

brandon k he|him says:making the player work moving to player 7. playlist. (refresh stuff)
brandon k he|him says:angust/ oct
me says:A relaunch would involve A defined launch date, which we organise people and resources around. My intuition here is that about 3 months from now is realistic (i.e. end of October). Technically speaking we would Turn off Wordpress entirely Launch the new hugo landing website Launch the new player Launch the new identity system Launch the Community Credentials pilot We would probably also seek to coalesce a number of non-technical efforts around this shared goal, including Bringing some parts of the community public (currently it’s invite-only Perhaps launching a newsletter / other communications which we use to convey the narrative of resonate, both around the relaunch and into the future. We would perhaps include a few governance goals in here too if that made sense, including some of the legal or coop process management things we’ve mentioned.
Kallie says:(If you ever need a copy writer for anything public facing ping me.)
me says:Aw… thanks Kallie.
brandon k he|him
brandon k he|him says:nice!
me says:Manifesto Review… making sure it commits the coop to a decolonizing, reparative, practice for healing communities.
me says:Rich look at language this week. Help from brandon and others to offer something to the Board the week following.
Working on music for a Monday deadline, so not sure if I can make it today. Might be able to take a break, will try.
Hello all. Launched room a bit late this am. On a car trip this morning.
What do folks think about the new look in the Forum?
Come through, let’s discuss this and anything else on your mind.
On my way
Chat from Aug 7
Full notes here.
ce: look at support / financial need
b: top priority player - player in the app store
K: kallie… make the ideas work
bk: hope build out this eco system / with connections to community// especially communities that have been harmed by the music industry// bc this paltform is global and so is capital.
ce: does ‘support’ mean money
bk: yes… but…
R; ‘resources’ isn’t always money, or don’t have to be monetized…
r: getting ready for Co-op Board Meeting… making a pitch for resources and business plan for the next 90 days… crucial time to make Co-op a on-going business
ce: speaks to benefits of social network… capitalist or whatever
ce: use examples
speaks to talk versus action
ce: be clear about support
h: using words… lots of different meanings… comes down to transparency… so ppl can be real participants
be direct… show. be explicit. get past the friendly speak.
ce: transparent budgeting
c: need to be open about who is supported
r: commit to getting documentation of budget current and future-going by tomorrow.
h: rich is operating outside his role description.
ce: recognize that reports is labor. easy to think ‘someone is keeping us down’
I know that there’s a community area for work to be done, is there a thread there for support requisition? support meaning whatever… Or a delegation thread?
Aka so some one can take the reigns of treasury for a time? Or write up a report from given notes
Italians have a saying, “Less thunder in the mouth and more lightening in the hands.”
Kallie—>> Not yet… ben coming slowly systematically through the worker charter
ce: offers help with reports
h: attracted to the idealism… but love the practicality
ce: democracy is hard.
rich -----> awesome presentation from Kerala India today
This is precisely what happens with social media platforms… which Resonate does have facets of.
this is a good example of where resonate could “support”
bk: calls out how survival can get in the way of democracy
c: social network is support, promotional emai
i asked blockchain socialist what it would take to get on platform - he says RSS support is what he needs
building the ecosystem for co-operatives, the ‘coop lifestyle’
This is in backlog
the ‘purchase without limit’ button
it hasn’t happened for a dumb structural reason… choices in 2018
current offer is not viable
ce: what do you mean be app
ce: bounty referral fees
let’s wrap in 5 minutes?
yes! iOS & android
The “let people pay more” button. Bandcamp has this. Its so helpful
Rich will highlight the current budget. And role.
I will not be available for today’s session.
We’ve been having some great conversations here so I hope folks are able to use the space (or not! – if that is their choice. )
See you next week!
Cool. Good to see.
Peace Resonate Cooperators.
Looking forward to this weekend’s Governance Chat session 2021-08-21T18:00:00Z.
I’d like to suggest we focus on the work @brndnkng is leading to prepare a final report for our TRUST grant, specifically about the social and cultural processes the coop and cooperators experienced in the development and implementation of the Community Credentials offer.
We have a draft Community Survey that would be great to share and gather feedback on before we circulate to the community. Link here
We will also ask to record tomorrow’s session in an effort to document Member’s sentiments, desires and criticism of community building at Resonate and relevant online spaces in general. (Folks will be absolutely welcome to opt-out of the recording process if they wish.)
Just listened in this time but it was very informative!
Anywhere I could check out the recording?
Looking forward to the next one.
So no governance chat today I’m guessin? I tried to join but I ended up alone at the microphone
