The revolutionary potential of the solidarity economy. As part of a bigger package of citizen participation, a genuine alternative beyond market and state. Important it’s not just theoretical – hence the value of autonomous zones (from small to large scale) putting it into practice in the here and now.

Joined the Open App Ecosystem loomio group. I like the aim: ‘This is a neutral group to talk about how we can build a suite of interoperable, open source tools which support transparent, democratic, and decentralized organizing.’ Not 100% sure what the approach is yet, but good to talk with other who care abou this and are thinking these things over. www.loomio.org/g/exAKrBUp/open-app-ecosystem
Managed to move my calendar relatively painlessly to nextcloud from google.
Need to get on top of my accounts a little bit. Looking into plain text accounting. Basically you keep your ledger in plain text files and the apps provide various helpers and reporting functionality on top of that. Integrates quite nicely with org-mode, so works for mean. Just need to choose between ledger, hledger, and beancount though. Beancount has fava built on top of it, but it doesn’t seem as good for budgeting options. I might go with hledger and use the beancount converter to display it in fava.
