Who They Are and What They Do There
At the intersection of community media, non-profit work, and rhetoric & writing, I hope to find a number of like-minded people, who may be approaching this subject from a number of directions. Some will be steeped in community work, with deep knowledge of community needs and capacities. Some will be technically savvy, with experience coding and hacking. Others may have a strong visual instinct for graphic design, photography, and video production. I've met some of these people already: Guiseppe Getto, Jeana-Dee Allen, Zachary Church, Laleah Fernandez, Jessica Rivait, Gary Andrews, and many more.
These people are engaged in a number of projects, some of which happen on the web. The models (at right) show some of what's possible; the chief instinct seems to be one of engagement, bringing in participation to the work of community building. This is an instinct I share.
