“It was not an accidental occurrence or for flippant reasons that Karl Marx and Mikhail Bakunin saw cooperative economics and labor self-management as useful tools in the struggle for socialism and the undermining of capitalism.”
“Cooperative economics and labor self-management provide the members of the laboring classes who experience class exploitation and domination and non-class forms of oppression with practical economic tools to challenge the economic and political power of the economic and political elite.”
Who remembers bookmooch? (http://bookmooch.com/)
You basically just swapped second-hand books with people by post. I used it loads like 10/15 years ago. Got some great books off there back in the day, from all around the world.
It even had it’s own alternative currency, in a way. You got points for book you gave away, to then request books you wanted.
Looks like it’s still going.
Does inventaire.io do a similar thing?
syncthing was killing my battery on Android. When I finally got around to looking into it, turns out there’s a github issue, a month’s worth of debugging and discussion, and a fix that dropped about 10 days ago.
Love how you can see all this out in the open.
