Drupal Worker Cooperative

Drupal is big! Practitioners are already working together.
Why not work together with a workers cooperative model as an option?

Questions of interest:

*What would it take to start a Drupal/FLOSS cooperative?
*What would the cooperative do?
*How could this facilitate international collaboration?

Look over the wiki pages:
*Drupal Cooperative How-To Resources
*Membership/Ownership Agreement
*Members Services
*Rights of Ownership

Do you know of a technology cooperative?
Add it to the directory.

please no recruitment job postings here unless you are willing to hire a worker co-operative; try Drupal Gigs, Worldwide, instead.

Drupal Cooperative to create and manage projects

I always liked to create and manage drupal projects, but it's a high time consuming task for just one person. If you work for a company you can lern a lot and it's also nice but you finally don't own the money and the work. That's why I would like to set up an ¿international? cooperative. It can allow us to work for us and do what we like.

¿Any ideas or previous experiences?¿Payment/earn methods, bug/tickets systems, managment?

Talking about a drupal service providers co-op (and how thats different than a worker co-op)

There are many different kinds of cooperatives - worker coops, producer coops, consumer coops, social coops, housing coops, etc.

Though this group is called Drupal Worker Cooperative - it seems that the intent is not just around worker co-ops themselves, but also around fostering something like a producer (in our case, service provider) cooperative for drupal workers (say - freelancers and existing businesses/worker co-ops).
