Help spread the word to the whole WELL orbit, present and former!
"Come share 30 years of The WELL, founded in 1985 as the Whole Earth ‘Lectronic ‘Link. The WELL’s writers, thinkers and crackpots will celebrate our history and what keeps the community going strong with discussions, readings and friends. Join us!  Culture, humor, internet history. And cupcakes."

This will be a don't-miss evening.   Newcomers, curious passers-by and oldtimers heartily welcome.  Start at six, stuff at 7:30, then disorganized fun til real late.   

(PS: the official anniversary is 4/1...  if you go to the Saint Stupid's Day parade you will a good representation of stupidity and some old pals from The WELL there, too.)

Wrapping up #StateoftheWorld 2015, an annual topic from  Bruce Sterling, Cory Doctorow, Jon Lebkowsky and more. Inspiring, disturbing, amusing and reflective.    Bring a point of view...

Something new.  We're playing with a different topic format for the Inkwell.vue project -- a conference at The WELL that non-members can read.  Along with Inkwell's classic two week guest "interviews," longer ongoing conversations are a new focus.  Here we'll follow member Paula Span's blog, both the content and the range of reactions she's getting.  Check this one out, and tell a friend who has aging parents, or who's noticed a distinct personal tendency towards gradually getting older.

Time to tidy up this logo a bit, adding the one with the microscopic "TM' on it to make note of our trademark.  Tomorrow is the anniversary of The Purchase!
