Platform Coop 2017: Technology Afterparty

Location: Full Space

11:00am - 4:00pm EST

After all the ideas emerging from #platformcoop2017, let’s turn ideas into action.
CoLab Coop is excited to help convene an after-party for our fellow platform-coop obsessed tech developers and platform designers to come together and learn from one-another, connect, and co-create.

This event is co-sponsored by the Platform Cooperative Consortium! Want to also co-sponsor? You’ll get feature here, at the event, and elsewhere on The Internet! Buy a sponsorship ticket, or email danny@colab.coop.

WHO
— Technologists and designers who work on – or are interested in working on – platform cooperative projects.

WHAT
— We’ll meet in an open space format to discuss projects, share tools, and collaborate on building technological infrastructure for the platform co-op economy.

WHEN
— Sunday, Nov. 12 — one day after platform.coop/2017. RSVP for that event here!
— 11am-12:30pm — we’ll get together for food and sharing of our experience developing coop tech platforms and sharing the technologies we are most excited about using to build the infrastructure for platform cooperativism.
— 1-4pm — we’ll use our open space to gather around shared interests and opportunities! Be ready to dream big with others, and to get real about the first steps we can take, together.

GOALS
— Identify a Platform Coop toolkit – discuss existing technologies that support Platform Coop development projects.
— Nurture a community of mutual-support in creating platform coop platforms.
— Identify needs for a successful platform coop development ecosystem: libraries, standards, communications infrastructure, etc.
— Develop working groups and connections for ongoing work.

FINALLY,
Where’s that image from? Jeff Warren and Caroline Woolard made it to visualize the Solidarity Economy in a neighborhood. If you want to order a print to benefit NAACP or SPLC please go to http://unterbahn.com/solidarity/
