The Agile Labour Union | West Space Journal
Agile is deeply rooted in these ideas, positioning its methodologies as the secret to unlocking the innovation, dynamism and competitiveness required of companies, taking advantage of new economy ideas to provide business imperatives for adopting the methodologies. In his book Agile Software Development Ecosystems, Jim Highsmith, a software consultant who attended the Snowbird meeting, dedicates three chapters to the task of situating Agile methodologies in new economy ideas, taking this quote from a New Economy management text:

Agility is dynamic, context-specific, aggressively change-embracing, and growth-oriented. It is not about improving efficiency, cutting costs, or battening down the hatches to ride out fearsome competitive “storms”. It is about succeeding and about winning: about succeeding in emerging competitive arenas, and about winning profits, market share and customers in the very center of the competitive storms many companies now fear.
...
Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams.
The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.

The Entire Economy Is MoviePass Now. Enjoy It While You Can. - The New York Times
For consumers who are willing to do their research, though, this can be a golden age of deals. We can get our “Avengers: Infinity War” tickets and pecan-crusted salmon meal kits, reaping the benefits of artificially cheap goods and services while investors soak up the losses. The current crop of money-losing companies may not survive forever, but as long as someone is willing to keep funding these types of gambles, there’s no reason to stop enjoying the fruits of their optimism.

So, back to the 75 Cent Dollar Store. Are you in?

Building diversity into the hiring process

It’s no secret that women are underrepresented in specialized technology fields, but they are particularly absent in the cybersecurity sector. Industry surveys suggest as few as 8 percent of cyber professionals are women.

Leaders at Endgame, an Arlington-based cybersecurity company, are working to address that imbalance.

“It’s the right thing to do, it helps the bottom line, and helps us build a better product,” said Andrea Limbago, who has a PhD in international relations and serves as “principal social scientist” for Endgame.

Part of Limbago’s role is to rethink how the company improves diversity.

Limbago said it starts with signaling that the company cares. At her urging, the company does this through little gestures such as offering company T-shirts in women’s sizes or staffing recruiting tables with women.

“When I go out to [cybersecurity] conferences, it’s almost like going to a hostile environment,” Limbago said, recounting stories of being pestered and followed by men. “Women will often wait in line if they get to talk to a woman.”

Limbago also hands out “camera blockers,” little stickers that block the camera lens on a laptop, in case someone might be cyber stalking.

“Women are more likely to be a victim of someone hacking into your computer and using your camera to watch you,” Limbago said.

Such initiatives might seem piecemeal, but the company seems to be getting results. According to internal hiring statistics, a whopping 42 percent of recent hires have been women. For the company as a whole, about 20 percent of employees are women — still far from equal, but double the industry average.

The National Co-operative Archive
posters and stuff (especially old ones)

Working Together is an HLF supported project based at the National Co-operative Archive, which aims to identify and make accessible records from some of the major UK workers' co-operatives of the 1970s-90s that are in danger of being lost. The rapid upsurge of interest in the idea of working co-operatively during this period led to a blossoming of a new wave of co-operative businesses. These workers' co-operatives aimed to create jobs where people were important, with an emphasis on sharing work, ownership, profits, responsibilities, and decisions. The legacy from those years remains an important one for the co-operative movement as a whole.

Why Silicon Valley can’t fix itself | News | The Guardian
This means developing publicly and co-operatively owned alternatives that empower workers, users and citizens to determine how they are run. These democratic digital structures can focus on serving personal and social needs rather than piling up profits for investors. One inspiring example is municipal broadband: a successful experiment in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has shown that publicly owned internet service providers can supply better service at lower cost than private firms. Other models of digital democracy might include a worker-owned Uber, a user-owned Facebook or a socially owned “smart city” of the kind being developed in Barcelona. Alternatively, we might demand that tech firms pay for the privilege of extracting our data, so that we can collectively benefit from a resource we collectively create.

The rise of women-only coworking spaces
Many women-centric coworking spaces cost about the same as or more than spots at places like WeWork (which starts at $220 a month for a hot desk). For example, The Riveter costs $375 a month for full amenities, and The Wing is $250 a month for an all access membership to multiple locations. The Coven is priced at $200 a month or $2,200 a year.
