The Agaric Team

Show and Tell

Share your knowledge. Collaboratively learn how to cooperate in the modern tech world.

We value learning new things and helping one another, so every Thursday at 3pm Eastern Time we take an hour to share things we are working on. We have deep conversations on the ways we can work together We use screensharing to show projects we are involved in and sometimes we doodle on the white board as we talk. 

Everyone is welcome to join the chat or just listen. The informal atmosphere supports us getting to know each other better and form stronger relationships. Anyone can suggest a topic for discussion or give a presentation or ask for input and help on a project. We use a poll to determine if we want to record the session.   Agaric hosts these show and tells publicly because we realize some of us work alone or in organizations that do not encourage skill-sharing, or may just be interested in broadening their knowledge or sharing some code.  So we invite you—our partners, students, colleagues, friends—to take part in watching or giving short presentations.

Show and Tell Weekly ***Schedule

First Thursday of each month is open discussion and we are up for suggestions. If you have something to share, send a note to the Show and Tell mailing list: showandtell@lists.mayfirst.org

Second Thursday of each month will be a Cooperative share discuss our workflows and business models as cooperatives.

The purpose of getting in touch with other co-operatives in the world is not just one, and it could be said that there are several at the same time and with equal importance.

First of all, we believe that the best way to strengthen the co-operative movement is to be connected, to share experiences, information - in other words, to cooperate. That is the essence of the organizational form we adopt for our companies.

— comment from Nicolas DiMarco of Fiqus Cooperative, Buenos Aires, Argentina
