Stewart Brand and his buddies from the Whole Earth Catalog and CoEvolution Quarterly are some of the best framers I've ever seen. When I go back through their magazines, I consistently find thinking about problems that is so clear that it does not lose its value. This was part of the organizing principle of the whole enterprise, which in various forms published new fascinating material and aggregated other stuff of all ages.
Today, I was looking through a CoEvolution Quarterly book about space settlements (yes, like outer space), which had been assembled from various articles that had run in the "peculiar magazine," when I came across this wonderful little frame, which you can feel free to steal. I'm sure they'd support you.
Most of this book is Used Information. It is reprinted from various issues of The CoEvolution Quarterly, a California-based peculiar magazine. You can look at that news two ways. If you operate by the Bread Model of Information, it's terrible news. You've been gypped - stale information. On the other hand if you view information as something fundamentally different from bread, there's the possibility of good news. Having lived longer, the information here may be wiser, more co-evolved with the world. It may be more refined, having cycled complexly through the minds and responses of 40,000 CQ readers. And it's been through two editorial distillations; the less-than-wonderful and out-of-date may have been extracted.
You may have noticed that my coverage of technology for The Atlantic does not operate on the Bread Model of Information. I think we can find new ideas (or frames for ideas) all over the timeline.
