Wiki Letter to the Marin IJ
I have created a wiki (a web service where members can collaborate on a document). The beginnings of the wiki letter can be found here. If you would like to contribute to the letter, please send me an email saying that you want to contribute and I will have the wiki service send you an email inviting you to join in on the fun. If you accept the invitation you should be able to edit the letter at will. A lot of excellent points were raised in the comment section of the previous post and I’d like to see them show up in the letter.
Some things to note:
- Other wiki members might be able to see your email address. I am not sure if that will be the case and if it is I don’t think it should be a big deal to anyone, but just be aware of it.
- I do not want the letter to be defamatory, just a reasoned critique and/or commentary regarding what has been published (e.g., ad hominems, fallacious arguments (e.g., that gas station owner argument…like how many gas station owners say things like “you better buy gas now before you are priced out of the gas market”, “they aren’t making any more petroleum”, etc.)).
- I’ll moderate the process and will contribute some, but I’d rather this be a community effort; I’m still too worked up about this whole thing. Let’s take this opportunity to demonstrate the power of the Internet.
- If this little experiment works, we should plan to have the letter finished in a few days.
- I doubt the letter will actually get published in the IJ without at least one person using their real name and mailing address but we can try anyway. At the very least we can publish the letter here on this blog for all the world to see.
- Be sure to “sign” the letter however you want.
