Why join? Ever had a really special place to hang out?

Maybe it was a neighborhood coffee shop. A used book store, perhaps. A place to hang out where you could always count on stimulating conversations — sometimes cerebral, sometimes completely off the wall. Where you could exercise free-form intellectual curiosity and your penchant for fun in equal measures.

That special place online is The WELL, a gathering place where the lost art of human conversation trumps the prefabricated sound bite.

What makes The WELL so different from other online discussions?

You know who you're talking with. As a WELL member, you use your real name. This leads to real conversations and relationships.

You get caught up in the quality and diversity of the dialogue. No more wading through endless dreck to find a few morsels of insight or wit.

You won't be subjected to advertising intrusions inside The WELL. Ever.

There's one way to find out if the WELL's for you, and if you are for The WELL.
