Thoughts on renaming this channel to #tech-workers-coop? To make it more self-descriptive for skimmers of the channel list?
Is this channel a co-op?
it might make sense to call it #g0v-tech-workers
i believe the original intention was after that convo, for ppl interested in discussions around and future plans for starting a tech workers coop
but heh, case in point for improving the name, maybe 🙂
The original intent was for people to share their struggles about tough jobs, low pay, working overtime and weekends, quitting,... and find solutions, together!
@chihao @phiven thoughts?
Oh! I totally misunderstood. (I was late for the meeting, and thought it was about starting a co-op in taipei, and i thought this was created to preserve momentum and lead to perhaps some action.)

Regardless, I def just hope for this to have a channel name that aligns with whatever ppl feel we're here for :)
Haha I guess this is like classic rare example of when channel purpose is good to have
@patcon ++ for trying to make things better. My thoughts are similar to @stationaery
Ok, I was out of sync, but glad to be back in! Sorry for the noise y'all!
Noise is great!
Ok, my own channel name suggestion to toss in the hat is `#tech-work-solidarity` :)
@patcon lest it go unsaid, the intention for this channel was also to make connections between g0v and twc techworkerscoalition.org
Could we bridge so we each have this channel for sharing on our own home-turf? Then ppl don't need to be as committed as you two to say "hi" :)
Wait.. Why have two channels, exactly?
Why: so there's one here in g0vtw slack (convenient for taiwan ppl) and its bridged to another in the twc slack (convenient for twc members who might understandably not have as much time to spend on another slack). Is that what you meant? :)
Yeah this channel resulted from a session we had between workers discussing similarities and differences in their working conditions and organizational strategies
It would be great to keep those conversations going as I learned a lot from our Taiwanese counterparts’ experience

Re: bridging techworkerscoalition slack with g0v, potentially using this channel.

wanted to bring this other topic up to channel level: https://g0v-tw.slack.com/archives/CD8LNSGMN/p1544196562014600?thread_ts=1543898554.005300&cid=CD8LNSGMN

@Felipe @Danny feel really in agreement with your comments in thread. alas, sorry, i apologize for being dense, but i'm still uncertaain on how you two feel about bridging slacks for this channel and one in twc slack. as i understand that, the goal would be to create an overlap in which g0v and twc people can most easily occupy. (ie. the IRC effect of "every interaction is /join away" rather than "register and /join")

would y'all feel that aligned and supportive of what you're aspiring for in being here? 🙂

Maybe when there is any indication of a need for that, it’d be worth doing. But right now I believe we’re seeing a need is for people in this channel to have more conversations about what we’re experiencing and why we think that happens and generally just being in this space.. and maybe we can add more bridges or whatever after activity demands it

@null 13:45:22
Ok, with the qualification below: as you wish :)

With genuine respect, I should admit the "wait for need" positioning of bridging does feel akin to saying of civic hackathons "they'll come when there's a need", which feels slightly off if the philosphy of the format is connection -- more about emergence, than reaction.

But that's a very personalised read through my own ways of moving :)

I was saying I can make the bridge connection for free at near-zero time cost to anyone on your end (just regular slack account requested like any new slack member), but it sounds like you're requesting that I don't. (i.e. more than "i don't personally think we need", but rather as a thoughtful yet firm block on my taking action.) Pls correct me if I'm misinterpreting :heart:

By way of analogy, We can also make a google drive - but what would we put in it?

Hello, Merry Christmas !!!
An important question, how is it possible to work remotely from China if your company is in the USA, how to use slack or google or what options there are to supply these platforms, HELP!
