Palante Tech launches the PT Commons

As part of our commitment to the worker cooperative movement and open source business principles, we want to make the documentation that runs our business freely available.  To that end, today we're opening the "PT Commons", a repository of internal documents that may be of interest to other cooperatives and tech providers.  Find it at: https://hq.palantetech.coop.

For new and forming cooperatives, you'll find documents like our bylaws and certificate of incorporation.  For folks doing similar work, you'll find technical documentation about how we do our job.  Over the coming weeks, we'll be reviewing more of our internal documentation and making it available online!  If there's a document you'd like to see right away, feel free to let us know.

Palante Tech will be running at limited capacity on May 1st to allow us to participate alongside our client organizations, allies, and the thousands of others across the United States and around the world organizing for the Occupy general strike and International Workers' Day. We're happy that as a worker-owned cooperative, we were able to bring our shared values and beliefs to this consensus-based decision.
