Our next community call will be on 2022-02-03T14:00:00Z. We’ll be focusing on Use Cases, and will be looking to settle on the use case for our upcoming trial of Cooperative Credentials, which we’re looking to do in March - May of 2022.
The meeting will be held using the ‘Big Blue Button’ open source conferencing solution courtesy of meet.coop and Resonate.coop who host and provide a room respectively. It usually all works well with most browsers, but in case Chrome is troublesome, Firefox has been pretty reliable.
Between March and April, we are looking to start running trials with the coops who have expressed an interest.
Aspects that still need some definition:
What use case(s) will we focus on and what will we ask to participating coops?
Cross-selling (exchange of discount coupons? What can each coop offer through its credentials?)
Focus on an event
KYC process - How the different steps in the process will look like (for sign up an sign in)
What checks will there be in place
Software solution: discourse, wordpress, other?
Standard method of authentication: 0auth2
Use cases brainstorming
Avoid “solutionism”. How much do we know about the community we want to serve? For example, CoopCreds might prove less valuable in countries where coops are a minority, and as such they already mostly know each other.
To focus more on the problems, please add examples in to our #problems category
Setting the boundaries? Is there an existing consensus that CoopCreds is only for coops? Can we look beyond that border? (eg. by collaborating with solidarity economy initiatives) How? (“Potential can of worms”)
We’ll keep the discussion on this going here
Finding the sizzle. What can we do with the existing network that we already have, and without having for a big coop conglomerate to join?
