This experimental online workshop began March 1, 2004 with a small group of volunteers. Since it's being done virtually, I have structured the workshop as a series of exercises intended to provoke feedback and thought from the participants. The participant's email addresses are removed, but the main medium for the workshop is via a small private mail alias.
Each assignment is intended to evoke responses and follow-up from the attendees. I have structured the information via a table, below, which will contain all the various messages related to the workshop. If you want to walk along with the workshop, read from left to right, top to bottom. Some discussion postings may be omitted for clarity or have extraneous details edited out.
