Is there a viable OpenSource Instacart-type software?
So here's my thought. Instacart sucks because all the reasons big money corporations and startups suck. But it's also awesome because it cuts down on the number of people who go to stores, and provides ways for people who are out of work to earn money. What if we could make a new company (FairCart) which works like Instacart and partners with food coops and similar small businesses (possibly as well as large grocery chains) and guarantees to pay employee fair market value, and provide health care. I have a background in how we might start that business from a business point of view, but would need some SOLID technology to make sure everyone gets paid and groceries get delivered, and that delivery people get reviewed fairly so customer service levels stay up there.
I'm still hashing this out but my idea is this would be 50% worker-owned, but I'm open to other ideas on that.
