Hello all! I'm Rebecca (she/hers) and I am the communications lead and worker owner at Round Sky Solutions. I live in New Orleans (originally from California). My background is in environmental nonprofits (before I came to coops) and I have a Masters of Management in Cooperatives and Credit Unions.

Hi all! I'm Wouter (he/him) and work as project lead at meet.coop - The Online Meeting Cooperative. We provide ethical online meeting and collaboration spaces. We try to build on top of and together with other cooperatives, e.g. we use openCollective to receive and pay financial contributions, we use arguably the best libre & open source online meeting software out there ;-) , we have servers in Europe and in Canada with Koumbit.org, and our team is staffed at different cooperatives in Europe & North America. Being here makes much sense to us - and our team voted in favour of course.

I see quite a few familiar names around here! Nice to connect here. It will be great to help each other out to increase each others projects' visibility and our memberships.

Our current channels include an OpenCollective channel for announcements (160 contributors), our forum @ forum.meet.coop, our twitter account, and individual accounts throughout the fediverse (social.coop in particular). Also we do monthly commons.hour sessions with in-depth discussions after a session starter by one of our members.

Here are a few tweets that you might want to check out and maybe promote (and share yours so we can promote back!):


Oli SB Tue 12 Jul 2022 11:08AM

Yay! Welcome Wouter and @convenor_Mike it's good to have you here!

Those Tweets are both great - I have retweeted them both... @all please do the same, if you can

Wouter, do you have a specific text, or a banner image which others can use to share info about Meet.coop in their email newsletters?


[email protected] Tue 12 Jul 2022 11:27AM

thanks @Oli SB !

here comes a description (if it's too long feel free to reduce) and an image:

The Online Meeting Cooperative provides privacy-respecting, commons-oriented online meeting services. We operate as an international coalition of coops who share the federated development of digital infrastructure for collaboration. meet.coop is powered by libre software, renewable energy and solidarity. The mission of meet.coop is to grow a sustainable cooperative business providing online collaboration spaces, paying a fair wage and using surplus income to support development in the commons.

Thanks Wouter - the image has got those red spelling wiggles under the words tho... do you have / can you make a version without those!?


[email protected] Tue 12 Jul 2022 4:23PM

uff, yes, those red wiggles! Thanks for spotting that. Just corrected and replaced the image. How does it look now?
