|Cooperatives are an intriguing business model for reasons addressed in a recent New York Times article  as well as a recent documentary film called Shift Change . The discussion sparked by Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century  provides further reasons for seeking out an alternative business model. Wikipedia has a good entry on the worker coop model .|
I've come across Quilted  and Colab , two worker-owned and run cooperatives working in the tech space in the U.S. Both have a fairly impressive lineup of worker-owners and compelling portfolios, indicating that the model can really work.
Does anyone know of other examples of such coops, both in the U.S. and around the world?
