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:

Jen Schradie: author of “The revolution that wasn’t”

Researcher Jen Schradie spent years studying political organizers across the spectrum in North Carolina. What she found is that, despite our mythology, it is the right-wing that benefits most from social media. But, there is more…. Join Schradie and others for a wide-ranging discussion of her new book, “The revolution that wasn’t: How Digital Activism Favors Conservatives.” It’s open to everyone, starting January 28, 2020.

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

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?
