I picked up "Why We're Not Emergent (By Two Guys Who Should Be)" from the library and have just gotten into the introduction. The authors are honest, humble, and well-informed. They do a great job outlining their purpose and are not offensive at all. There is an interesting section right at the beginning that attempts to describe what emergent "is" and since I know this is a question we often ask, I thought I'd post their (very long) description. It's kinda funny, but not far off at all. So, read the description in the comments field, and answer the question for yourself, once and for all: Are You Emergent? :)
The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007. We are an intergenerational group encouraged by the phenomenon that is emergent/ing/ence. Email email@example.com for more information, and/or join our next gathering. To receive cohort emails, join our Google group.
