The Wordyard Project is where I’m writing about
being ourselves in a post-social world.
For me, this is:
- a beat to cover
— I’ve been a journalist since I was in high school!
- a conversation to hold
— I’ve been talking with people online for nearly 25 years!
- and a publishing model to explore
— I started self-publishing on a mimeograph machine in the 1970s and I never want to stop.
The model is:
- independent — this is what I do. No one owns me.
- personal — this is really me here, not a media property or a startup or any other kind of quasi-human entity.
- disintermediated — there’s as few middlepeople between you and me as possible.
- sustainable — I am not building something so I can sell it later. I’m doing exactly what I want to do here, and I want to keep doing it for a very long time.
I wrote a trio of introductory posts that lay all this out in more detail:
- The Wordyard Project: Being ourselves in a post-social world
- Authenticity: Who we are when we’re together through our devices
- Wordyard Project nuts and bolts: what I’ll do and how I’ll support it
