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.

Currently in the Inkwell:

The State of the World 2020, with Bruce Sterling and guests

For more than fifteen years, The WELL has been proud to host writer Bruce Sterling’s annual discussion about where the world is and where it’s going. Join Sterling and other special guests for a freewheeling, fascinating discussion.

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

Join the conversation!

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?
