Welcome to Inkwell.vue, an unusual WELL conference that can be read without a password. Unlike most WELL conferences, which require a WELL account in order to read and post, the discussions in this conference can be read by anyone, and if you wish to join in and contribute to the discussion, you can do that as well.

Coming up in the Inkwell:

“The State of the World 2021”                        starting January 5, 2021.

Check back after the New Year for the link.

For two decades Bruce Sterling and Jon Lebkowsky have started the new year by spending two weeks in conversation about “The State of the World.” The insightful, often edgy conversation takes place on the WELL, and incorporates comments and feedback from all comers – including YOU!

Unlike most topics on The WELL, you don’t need a WELL member account to read or participate – this one is open to all!

Check out the 2020 conversation here.

The books and commentary we’ve spotlighted over the years run the gamut from timely political commentary, to noteworthy blogs, to gardening and cooking books, to parenting issues, to the social implications of new technologies. We’ve delved into the evolution of online culture and communications technologies, and we’ve explored improvisational and collaborative branches of music history. Who can say what we’ll talk about next?
