Revision as of 08:17, 21 January 2019

A collaborative book project about the future

We are done!

TheFWD index‎ is the page where you can see the final book! Our process for managing copy and workflow is on the page you're on right now, and the final index etc. is over there.

http://thefuturewedeserve.com/1/buy is where you buy a hardcopy! Thank you for all your help!

Inspirations and Guidance

  • Notice how to write a hook sentence: pieces should be short - 500 words are ideal, 800 max. Pieces will be hypertext objects, with links to more information on every page. Pick one thing and make a little jewel box that describes it. Remember you can do more than one piece.
  • We will group pieces into patterns together. The brief is loose to see what is out there, what great wonders people have to show. Order and sense will be made in the sequencing, and possibly additional pieces used to framesets of pieces.
  • seven thousand einsteins is about the right length (500 words) and nicely illustrates one central idea, but it's more chatty than I would have written it for the book. (you can be as chatty as you like) @leashless
  • Hexayurt Project in a Nutshell is too long and doesn't get down to the core fast enough. @leashless
  • With enough eyes: On Criticism Gives a philosophy of criticism to help make this project far more than the sum of its parts. @gelada

The Shape of the Book

  • Idea One: 100 short essays (< 1000 words?, 500-800 words)
  • Idea Two: 99 short essays, and one long piece about 1/3 of the length of the whole pulling together a coherent vision from the parts - I like this one!

Features

  • GFDL or similar license
  • POD or short print run demanding on a shape of demand
  • Could be the first of a series
  • Web site which has each essay in the book, and some kind of network for navigating between the essays, as well as (critically) connecting with the authors to Make Things Happen
  • Openness to projects documenting themselves as book entries
  • Translation of as much content and into as many languages as the internet smart-crowd allows
