Is There Such Thing as a Digital Co-op?
Meet Cathy, the Cooperative Development Institute’s new answerwoman! She can take on any co-op questions you might have, big or small. Today we address the questions: “Is there such thing as a digital co-op? Is there something specific about a co-op for digital workers? How can the co-op model matter to digital workers and what are some best practices?” See all of Cathy’s answers and ask your own on her home page. This blog post was written by Micky Metts of Agaric, a web development collective based in Boston.
