I'm researching tech worker coops and I'm only finding service companies—software consultancies and design shops and hosting companies and the like. Are there any software development coops that sell a product?

I don't know any of them personally, sorry.
I would check out http://american.coop/node/119 and http://electricembers.net/pubs/TechCoopHOWTO.pdf

Well, while the first priority for a union is to protect its workers, unions that are successful also provide an ostensibly more qualified individual to do the job, right?

The thing is, “IT” compromises a whole industry. I think there are certain jobs that fall under that umbrella, such as PC repair, that could easily become unionized; they can be broken down to core skills that can be taught and tested.

However, things like development can not. Even amongst developers there is not much consensus about how to gauge proficiency or productivity (just look at the number of horror stories out there about both sides of the interview/review process).

I'm not well versed in this debate, so I hope I'm not rehashing any stale anti-union arguments here. I'm certainly unopposed to it, I just don't see how it would play out across the industry.

Nothing is showing up under the +1 tab of my profile although I have +1ed some things in Google+. How is it supposed to work?

Meanwhile, executive pay was up 23% last year (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/03/business/03pay.html). Something to keep in mind the next time you hear some asshole in a suit telling us we all need to "share the pain."

Maybe everyone else has already seen this but I thought it was pretty interesting. The author used to work on Google+, now works for Facebook.

The Google+ Iphone app is supposed to be "Coming soon." Does anyone know how soon we should expect to see it?

Question: My profile photo shows up correctly next to posts that I make, but next to comments I make I only get the default anonymous blue head. How can I fix this?

And yet, I still see only the blue head. Odd.
