One aspect of Psybertron’s activity, beyond publishing and linking to the publishing of others, is efforts to create and participate in some genuinely collaborative ventures – where there is “natural confluence” in the the overlapping of ideas and agendas. [This aspect is still under development.]
Some of these are listed below:
Joining Dots & Weaving Threads – a Ning-based blogging, forum and collaborative web space. Though not successful as a vehicle (yet), it contains many if the collaboration resources and ideas I bring to such a venture, but neutral in terms of my own agenda content.
The Global Circle – multi-user Worpress blog, created with a small group spun-off from Nick Maxwell’s “Friends of Wisdom”. Same collaborative agenda as Dots&Threads above, but with a little more traction of multiple founding members. A deliberate irony in the name, alluding to the logical positivists “Vienna Circle” with a name that doesn’t otherwise attempt to describe its content.
Best Thinking – an independent edited multi-user blog used by several of the same collaborating parties as the above ventures, for publishing more formal articles in specific topic categories. Personally, I find having to fit the individual writer into one of the pre-defined categories limits the intent to focus on the overlaps.
