[Editor's Note: two other members of Guerrilla Translation recently penned an article for GEO about how the DisCO model has worked out in practice. If you missed it the first time around, you can read it here.]
Stacco Troncoso co-founded Guerrilla Translation with his partner, Ann Marie Utratel, as a living project to ground P2P and Commons theories in real practices.
He talks with Owen Kelly about the work of the group, and the ways in which they see the structure of their group as a vital part of its practice. They have developed a model of governance that guides their practice while acting as an example that others might build upon.
This model has grown into the idea of DisCos – distributed coops that exist in the marketplace without adopting the values of the marketplace.
Stacco also touches upon his work with the p2p Foundation and Commons Transition, both of which we hope to cover in more detail in a future episode.
