Hello all, first time poster here. I love the Robin Hood Unlimited idea, and while you may all be aware of some predecessors to it, I thought I’d bring some to your attention.
This article is a good summary of some of the ideas that have been floating about for a few years: http://stirtoaction.com/open-co-ops-inspiration-legal-structures-and-tools/
Probably some of you are aware of One Click Orgs and you may be aware of One Click Co-ops: http://create.oneclick.uk.coop/coops/intro
But what I wanted particularly to highlight is that I’m told a significant new co-op in London, DIY Space for London, is using the Co-ops UK platform above as one of their main organising tools, including doing a lot of online decision-making. Now the one thing (I think) the Co-ops UK platform doesn’t do that I think is really key, is mobilise resources online and allow budgets to be controlled there. But it is an interesting start.
So I was wondering if a potentially useful step for development of RHU might be to get feedback from DIY Space about what has worked and what hasn’t. What do you think?
