I am looking for a few good writers and editors to help with the development and evolution of Memes for the Creation of a New Culture. As I have discussed before, this is a living book and your participation is essential.
I have moved my entire website including my blogs Vision Thing, Mind Flashes and my Writings from my old blogging platform Typepad to WordPress in order to facilitate with open sourcing During the past six months, I have been studying the mechanics of WordPress in order to use it as a content management system for writing a book rather than a journal based weblog (blog).
WordPress comes with both pages and posts as part of it basic structure. Posts are dated journal entries and pages are dateless and static sections of content that can be arranged in a hierarchical order, lending themselves to the the way a book is structured. I am using both in the project.
Comments are part of a blogging and I have enjoyed the many comments you have made since I started Vision thing way back in 2003. I have added commenting to the pages so all of you can offer ideas and suggestions in each of the books sections. Additionally, I would like to have some of the best of you work on the sections in the role of writers and editors. You can add additional words, images, videos and references that I would otherwise miss or leave out for lack of resources.
Many of you have noticed that I make a lot of typos in writing. i was born with typo-blindness, which renders all my mistakes in spelling, grammar and content invisible to me. Writing a book in real time is a bit like walking a type-rope without a safety net. I invite those of you who can help be my safety net and help spare some embarrassment.
You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to volunteer first thing or you can also get active in commenting on the sections of the book and blog that are already online. I welcome your participation to move this project forward.
