We facilitate an online workshop on “Paragogy and Ubuntu.” It doesn’t go well. We want to understand why.
Participants have trouble installing open source software Mumble. There is little activity on the shared Etherpad.
We discuss trade-offs between community and individual projects. Conference organizers suggest a “good outcome” is just increased awareness of paragogy.
We strengthen our shared skills at working with risk by devising the PAR.
We hope to establish a distributed “mutual aid society”—but we need to work harder to make sure that it’s really mutual.
