Computers have revolutionized our lives in recent decades, and the industry that has sprung up with the rapid growth of technology is home to a number of co-ops. These are often organized as worker co-ops, but sometimes take looser forms in which independent programmers can find support while maintaining their independence.
GAIA Host Collective is a worker co-op specializing in hosting web sites.
Web Collective is a Seattle-based worker co-op, which specializes in open source software and web site design.
Cernio Technology Co-operative provides its producer-members with technology to support their tech-related businesses.
Sligo Computer Services is a worker co-op providing database and network programming, as well as technical support.
Integrated Systems for Co-ops (IS4C) is a collaborative effort by retail food co-ops to develop an open source system to run point-of-sale cash register systems. It is now ringing up groceries at four co-ops.
