Dear Libervisioners,

I hope that Brian and other Co-ops people come along to Libervis community. Here is his last message to me:

Hello Monserrat,

I will be sure to check out the Libervis community forums. By all means add
my comments below and feel free to respond at will. I am afraid that I am
fairly busy and already spend quite a lot of time on the internet. So, while
I will try to participate at the Libervis site, if it seems like I am not
there it is not for wanting to be involved. So, if there are specific
questions or thoughts that you'd like to share with me, please feel free to
send me an email.

To be honest I think the discussion about co-operatives in the software
market is very exciting. I have been chatting to colleagues here about the
potential impact of internet-based co-operatives that collaboratively share,
build and own software. Everyone's response is one of "WOW!"

Re: Co-ops people are coming along!

I thank you for inviting them and hertily welcome them to forums as soon as they will come. I am very happy that you people recognized libervis as a good place for discussing this very interesting topic. This makes even more than just a FOSS community portal, it makes it the heart of a new possible community movement spilled out of the free software movement - the movement for colaborative society (or maybe "free information society"..

I am thankful and excited about that.
