We don't have to be the product.

We don't have to contribute to income inequality.

We don't have to do the work we care about in our free time.

We don't have to allow our ideals of liberty and freedom to be twisted and subverted by corporate interests.

We can do something different.

Oh, I should add the following additional skill gaps we are currently feeling:

1. Technical writing.
2. Product marketing and Communications.
3. Web site management.

Even a few hours a month provides a huge benefit to the coop. We expect it to take ~8 hours over ~4 weeks to build enough context to begin contributing, so don't hesitate to ask questions (either here or via email; zee@zinc.coop)
