   Ah, it is a listserv ( [1]https://npogroups.org/lists/info/tech-coop )
   and network of tech businesses that are organized as worker
   cooperatives ( [2]https://www.techworker.coop/ ).  There is a similar
   group/listserv that is more international ( [3]https://patio.ica.coop/
   ) although both have a worldwide reach.  The worker cooperative
   movement is very in line with free software.

   I just saw this on the Tech-Coop listserv and thought it would be
   relevant here: [10]https://savedotorg.org/
   (note, uBlock Origin blocks the form you need to fill out to sign it,
   if
   you have that app you need to disable it for it to work)
