I spent a while investigating how to record the time we spend working on regular admin tasks. I tried some different apps that integrate with Trello before deciding that it probably makes sense to continue using FreeAgent but to record our time at a finer level of detail.
Are we a co-op?
Our website says that we’re a co-op yet neither of us knew whether we could legitimately defend that statement. I spent some time investigating cooperatives and collectives and came to the conclusion that we satisfy the somewhat loose definition of a worker cooperative. I made a number of notes but they’re in our internal wiki so I can’t link to them from here unfortunately.
I was joined by Ben G and Chris L for our monthly drinks on Wednesday. We started in the Lord Nelson but that soon filled up so we moved on to The Crown. I think I was last in The Crown during my Reevoo days (maybe about 8 years ago) so it was good to visit and see that it hasn’t changed a great deal.
I continued to work on my spike to refactor
ClassMethod and friends but got sidetracked when I found another class (
ModuleMethod) that I need to consider when making my changes.
We agreed to test using Cobudget within CoTech to collectively put some money toward a bar tab for the aforementioned social. While a relatively trivial use of Cobudget, it should hopefully help us understand how it works and how we might use it for slightly more substantial projects.
Until next time.
