Berry Boxes

Beta-version, placed in low-traffic locations (thinking the trophy shop). Just a drop-box for returning books.

Public-version, The full-blown BB would be capable of receiving all manner of goods (things released to commons, returns, donations). Visible to the public, the BB could have signs sticking out from it (or contained in a booklet) that promote current 'projects' that are trying to marshal resources. Names/Numbers are written on an envelop with the $ (or something similar) so, in the event the project doesn't green light, the money can be returned (or - we might ask or there might be an option giving them the choice to just donate it to the BG, or we can establish a 'berry bank', or it can go to a similar project, etc...)




Bumph (explanatory materials)



it's easy, it's fun, it's good for everyone.

desire, not central planning or pre-assigned roles, drives participation and collaboration

It's not about what you're good at, it's about all the good that you can help to make happen.


a different social network.

Not an online community, but a community online

Collaboration & sharing privileged ahead of consumption & possessiveness

A (relative) disprivileging of the ego

Pledge / Threshold catalysts

Alerts/appeals model is less personally exhausing (less info-overload) than an invite/requests model

Local like a plant, but is plantable in any locale (the project can be seeded and reworked in other places).

Design philosophies

CG, Avoid hardwiring what social convention & human decency can take care of on their own., Anticipate and welcome both vertical (population) and horizontal (functional) scaling., Minimal oversight. Equip community with tools to self-regulate as much as possible (flags, revision histories, freetag & free text 'how it is shared' stipulation, etc.)
