Lessons from 2019 Instantiation

  • Deciding on book/s needs to happen earlier so that we can get the word out and folks can plan

Reading Ideas From 2019 Planning

  • Hayek (on information) Aaronshaw (talk) 16:39, 7 May 2019 (EDT)
  • If we want to read something ecological I would pick "organizations evolving" by Reuf and Aldrich. It may be a bit too high level and its kind of a textbook. I'd also be excited to do Marx, Weber, Durkheim. Another idea for a social theory book is "Constructing Social Theories" by Stinchcomb. Groceryheist (talk) 18:24, 5 June 2019 (EDT)
