I like this.  Working together pleases me.  If it can be done without people getting butthurt over constructive criticism or their pieces not being picked, excellent.

Should be easy enough to make a I AM SO BUTTHURT BECAUSE I WASN'T CHOSEN thread and force the smarting anuses to weep there.

And this is why I feel the entire concept is a really unworkable idea.

Dunno.  It was done before I heard about it.

All I'm saying is, if this ain't done properly, it has SNUB written all over it.

And I'm not sure how you'd do it properly.

I wasn't here when the first Black Iron Prison docs were written. Here's the rough life cycle of the project:


-In 06, the people here were talking about creating a new Principia Discordia which delivered the discordian signal in a very straightforward way
-Somebody wrote the first BIP essay, others responded favorably
-A bunch of people wrote essays relating to this core idea of the Black Iron Prison
-LMNO put together the first pamphlet, basically pulling in all the essays people had written.


Typically, a collaborative writing project has a champion, somebody who's willing to be editor in chief. They make the hard choices about what's in or out (though usually the problem is collecting enough material, not collecting too much material)

The phrase "Principia Discordia 2012" is pretty loaded.. I bet nothing we create will live up to the imaginary standard the phrase represents. So we'd need a different title, and I think that would be less pressure to get it "perfect".

I wish I had any good ideas on doing it properly, cause I think The DP 2012 is a good idea.

I don't see where there is going to be a lot of butthurt, it would be a general consensus vote, not one person picking out what they felt best represented the topic.  

But, it was simply an idea.

Nope.  I spent much of 2006 in exile.

That's what I like about your idea too.

I concur.

I think someone wrote that while being possessed by TGRR's spirit.

I wrote that in early 2003.  I was probably asked about it, but I cannot remember.

ETA:  That is not its orginal form.  I must have altered it to include American Idol.

I take a lot of pills, you see.
