Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Own the Internet: Clatskanie Co-op

A small group, formed an ISP Co-op called Clatskanie Co-op. This group of people (up to 60 members now, I beleive), connect to each other and the main antennae through a node system. They literally connect a web nodal structure to create their internet service provider. They use Althea Mesh technology.
