What began as exasperation with dysfunctional organizations and boring meetings became a quest to discover what is possible with collaborative, networked work.

We need a way to see how our individual work connects with larger communities and to realize that each of those relationships can be an avenue for information, resources, and new ideas to be exchanged.
