The staff at Softwine Market runs Softwine Market. Below is meta-journal documenting staff activities.

Eli Goodman

New ideas are run by Eli. He quickly picks up on a new idea, articulates it, reformulates it, transforms it, and analyzes it from multiple angles. In a sense he manages a machine shop for new ideas, making prototype concepts that are then run in factory production discussions.

David Weil
The Weil Group

David is founder of Paca Summit, a maker of organic Merino wool clothing. Paca Summit is one of the outside companies that Softwine Market promotes through the MoCo Co-op. David advises the team on how to promote Paca Summit and the other companies here.

Joe Orlow

Joe is the market manager. He is in charge of the market. He plans market activities.

His role involves networking people together. The idea is to keep the channels of information open through this website, social media, live and recorded audio and video, email, texting, as well as the phone.

Here’s an article from ModernFarmer.com about standards. Warning: some coarse language.

Working on an article on a new Paca Summit knitter.

Some of the platforms we use are Disqus, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram, YouTube, and, of course, WordPress, the host of this website. There is one another platform we use. And that is Gab.

Gab is the Wild West of social media. There is almost no policing there. Content that could get someone banned from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube is par for the course on Gab. The Softwine Market name at Gab is “Softwine”.
