Interesting piece.


Consider rolling out a web service portal that's organized as a cooperative. One user, one vote. That's what I offer in my piece, 'Free Software 2.0: Web Cooperatives?':


" ...


It just seems to me that as these services integrate more closely into our lives, the need for a stronger social contract increases. This isn't just about privacy, but also reliability and community. It would feel good to know that the service's management is working harder for the user than the shareholder (crazy!). In a cooperative, the user is the shareholder, so no worries."
