That's what I'm hoping for. But I also know that waiting around for someone else to start something is just as lazy as not doing anything.

that's why I was trying to get the ball rolling

Project ideas...

Everybody involved, go out, take a dozen (or more/less) photographs.  Grab an image that speaks, something with some emotion behind it, that might do the same for others.

Shove them all in a common photobucket (or whatever) account.

Go in.  Grab an image.  Yours, his, mine, whatever.  Doesn't matter if someone else has used it, in fact, better to get multiple stories per image.  Grab one that tells you a story.  Tell us the story (with link).

Rinse and repeat.

Yes, and I do appreciate that.  Wasn't trying to be dismissive.

Cram: There was also some talk about a Principia Discordia 2012 project in another thread I'm too lazy to go find right now. What would have to happen for that to get moving? I was serious about the layout work.

whew, it's a big idea

We have this project vibe around here, it goes through phases. Right now it's in a lull phase, but there is a "Mania" side of the coin too. It tends to work like - somebody has an idea, somebody else riffs on that idea, somebody else makes a cartoon about that idea... and then we end up with this nice little bundle of content that somebody like Net or I would lay out.

Nearly all of our successful projects emerge kind of organically. We have had very little luck getting people to write for a specific spec in advance. For example, we had this project called Lollercaust. It was basically supposed to be the manual of Horrormirth. We made some great attempts but utlimately couldn't bring it together. I think the problems there was that we started off with too concrete of an idea. We told people, "Write something funny," and that's kind of hard to do on command.

In contrast, the Black Iron Prison got started because a bunch of people were riffing on an idea, then LMNO made a pamphlet out of it.

Intermittens started because Manta Obscura created a "Insightful post dump" thread, sort of a "post of the day" thread for thought provoking or interesting stand-alone posts/articles. I said "This stuff is so good, I wish it was in a magazine." Then I taught myself how to make a magazine, and was willing to teach others. Now we have 12 issues of Intermittens. At no point was there a "manager", it all arose kind of spontaneously.

We've had a half dozen discussions about how we can make this place more ripe for projects, or how we can better combine our skills to produce good reading material, but basically those threads always get jacked and crapped up by alternate agendas and competing ideas about how to encourage good content.

A good method, I've found, is to get the ball rolling by collecting some content you like into a single thread. Then the discussion sort of follows - what else belongs in this thread?

I'm down for discussing another major PDF project - as I said upthread, I've got some mental space for a new batshit game/prank/book. And I don't mind doing a little cat herding. But we kind of need a spark first, something to get fired up about. I also think that creating a new Principia is doomed because it's too ambitious, and we'll never agree on anything. But the basic idea is great - something like a manifesto, but with dick jokes

Though the moment has passed, I'd still like "Nessies" to be collected, edited, arranged, possibly illustrated (via P3nt's shoops), and published.

It's a massive project, and uses very little direct creativity (though plenty of ancilliary creativity), but it's awesome.

Where my head is right now, I would love to do a project of writings on the subject of alienation, from an optimistic approach. "Stick Apart", only better; almost all of us in Western society suffer from some form of alienation, and it's constantly reinforced in almost every aspect of our environment. This is a HUGE problem; we are alienated in our jobs from our product, our employer, and our co-workers, we are alienated from the opposite sex, we are alienated from our peers, from our neighbors, from new immigrants, and we participate in the spectator sport of two-party politics, alienating us from people who share most of our values and want essentially the same things we do.

We have recognized our prison; now what do we do about it? Do we stay in our own cells, or do we move the bars to include others by finding commonalities and building a Black Iron Conference Hall or a Black Iron Stadium of Getting Shit Done Together?

Hey, You! You Aren't So Special (and doesn't it feel good?)
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku
