Vote for our future . . .

.coop is a TLD or Top-Level Domain name extension used on the Internet to clearly identify an organization that is devoted to the disciplined study and practice of cooperative principles.

The time has come for those among you who share in these values and hopefully our intended expression of them, to lend this mission your vote of confidence.

We seek to register a new primary domain name of FR.COOP to serve as an unambiguous symbol of our society united in cooperativism. Find your way to our Patreon account, register, vote for our future.

Fleet Réalta Cooperatives, intended as a unique Non-Profit Mutual Benefit Corporation, a Co-operative Capitalist, Federated  Union of Worker Cooperatives governed by a Technocratic variant of Sociocracy.

Much as a federal credit union, we strive to enable Economic Democracy for Social Democracy by technically extending those business fundamentals, providing deeply engaged fiscal sponsorship to our Maker Cooperatives through Critical Intelligence and Infrastructure as a Service.

This level of high personalization reduces systemic costs, while better managing the inherent risks of innovation characteristically borne by this primary constituency and their corresponding Ancillary Cooperative service organizations.

Fleet Réalta Cooperatives are Cultural Technology designed to collaboratively visualize, analyze, synthesize, manage together, to continuously optimize human strengths, accommodate human limitations.

As a union, we are uncompromisingly dedicated to serving the public good via public-private partnerships, building instrumental fusions of software, hardware, wetware that promote healthy, fit, thriving communities through the reinvention of critical infrastructure.

In the execution of our ArtScience, we own a moral context that demands the processes of labor and its fruit be equitably just in its apportionment, accessible and accountable, characteristically adaptive, flexible, and highly resilient, for life and prosperity in a volatile world.

Makers Making A Better Living.

The Three Laws of Making

  1. When any presumed scientific authority states that something is possible to make, they are almost certainly right, and whenever such an authority states that something is impossible to make, they are in all probability wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of “The Possible” is to risk our time, talent, and treasure to venture just a little way beyond that into “The Impossible”.
  3. The associated risk of these ventures must be predicated on their potential for ensuring the fitness of our species to survive, executing them in form and in function, so advanced as to appear indistinguishable from magic.

Team closes in on ‘Holy Grail’ of room temperature quantum computing chips | PHYS.ORG

Huang and colleagues, including graduate student Jiayang Chen and senior research scientist Yong Meng Sua, dramatically boosted system efficiency by using a chip made from lithium niobate on insulator, a material that has a unique way of interacting with light. Unlike silicon, lithium niobate is difficult to chemically etch with common reactive gases. So, the Stevens’ team used an ion-milling tool, essentially a nanosandblaster, to etch a tiny racetrack about one-hundredth the width of a human hair.

Before defining the racetrack structure, the team needed to apply high-voltage electrical pulses to create carefully calibrated areas of alternating polarity, or periodic poling, that tailor the way photons move around the racetrack, increasing their probability of interacting with eachother.

Chen explained that to both etch the racetrack on the chip and tailor the way photons move around it, requires dozens of delicate nanofabrication steps, each requiring nanometer precision. “To the best of our knowledge, we’re among the first groups to master all of these nanofabrication steps to build this system—that’s the reason we could get this result first.”

Null Shard Build Blurs Line Between Game And Reality With Laser Cutting, Mold Making, 3D Printing | Hackaday

In The Room Three, players are tasked with collecting mysterious objects known as “Null Shards”. But it seems one player, who goes by the name [Juiceman], took this challenge a bit literally. Starting with promotional art released for the game, he embarked on an epic journey to create a replica “Null Shard” that ended up looking so good that one of them is currently residing in a place of honor at the headquarters of developer Fireproof Games.
