the Reimagining Society Project on Znet

From the introduction to the project hosted by Z Communications "Reimagining Society" mini site:

Running through Sept 30th

Reimagining Society participants are generating a vast outpouring of content bearing upon vision for a new society and strategy to attain the aims. This includes:

o brief introductions by a great many participants summarizing their histories and their hopes and desires for the project
o initial essays provided by many participants which serve as the starting point of the project discussions
o discussion among participants of the essays
o comments on the essays by many readers of the site
o itemized proposals extracted from the essays and discussions
o polls tallying participants' and readers' reactions to the proposals
o concluding essays by participants assessing the overall project, and
o a brief accounting of possible future directions for the project.
