About Thrivable Society

Thrivable Society is a community space where people with a variety of interests and backgrounds come together to explore the living edge. Here we play the Infinite Game. If you are led by curiosity, seeking the living edge of possibility, want to scan the known dimensions of Thrivability, then you are in the right playspace!

You have reached our knowledge base - a homegrown Wiki structured as series of nested cards. We invite you to contribute to our collective epistemic weirdness, where we hold both the serious gravity of the world as it is and the opportunity for whimsical bliss. Here, we dance between sincerity and irony as we co-create a more curious and more kind world. Acknowledging that we are profoundly interdependent, we gratefully embrace small abundance and beauty, in ourselves and with others, and with all life. 

Wanna keep exploring? Join our real-time flows as a Community Our lively community has regular events, fore/back-casting calls, and podcasts too, oh my! Thrivable Society flows grow the stock of wisdom here.

We benevolent tricksters and agents of epiphanies welcome you!

Grab your pataphysical compass, because here is how to orient in this playspace:

How to Participate

This is a structured wiki, which means you can change what is here. This wiki, Decko*, is made out of cards. Everything is a card. And cards can have different types. Types might be an image or phrase, but they can also be a template. These templates aid in easy contribution with no coding required, so you can add to a section, such as Recommended Reading. When you "Add" to that type, it shows you a form to input the content.

Browsing is great, participating takes many forms.

  • Find wisdom using our Curated content or meandering through the structures of content that excite you
  • Leave comments on much of the content you discover here
  • Add to our links and referrals to other places
  • Recommend reading for others
  • Drop in your own articles and interviews
  • Edit and improve existing wisdom
  • Assist in curating content
  • Expand how we organize and relate

Be sure to read our Community_Netiquette too!

* Note that Jean is on the board for the nonprofit, Grass Commons, creating Decko, and thus she transparently names her bias for it.
