[Presentation begins at 46:49 -ed]

Uninspired by bullshit jobs? Tired of working for absentee shareholders and investors? While many of us are leaving our workplaces to create better models and methods of governance and value distribution, the devil is in the details.

In this webinar, DisCONauts Sofía Bustamente, Felipe Duarte and Stacco Troncoso will take you through the ins and outs of DisCO building!

The webinar was recorded in November 2020 as part of Stir To Actions and Selgars Mill BeyondHere Fellowship.


Distributed Cooperative Organization is a clunky name that, while accurate, fortunately reduces to “DisCO” which is a lot easier to remember. The DisCO (read all about it in the DisCO Manifesto) takes a friendly but carefully planned approach to people working together to create value in ways that are cooperative, commons-oriented and rooted in feminist economics. DisCOs are amplified by the power of Distributed Ledger/Blockchain technologies, harnessing the utility of tech without being completely tech-centric, emphasizing mutual trust and remembering to have fun.
