I was only able to attend one session of the conference but I was glad it was the superpanel facilitated by @FreeScholar of @agaric . Osamu Nakano of Japan Workers Cooperative Union was a particular standout asking about the contradiction between the anti-trade position of platforms and the worker enpowerment that is meant to be central to worker-owned coops.

I guess the questions are:
1) Is pro-worker?
2) Is anti-union?
3) Is anti-capitalist?

Year after I continue to feel like the answer to all of these might be No. Though I am iffy on 2. 🤔
