I'm still looking for a #coop in Europe to join as a software developer.
Can anyone recommend one, or know of a co-op directory of sorts? Or maybe you're setting up a co-op and like an extra pair of hands to make it happen?

Boosts welcome!

Trickle-down economics is the theory that if I eat both my lunch and your lunch, this will somehow eventually prove nutritious for you too.
