Tuesday Open Thread: Ask New_ Public’s Trust Magazine Writers!

If you’re new here, we’re New_ Public, and we’re focused on creating flourishing digital public spaces. Welcome to our second Tuesday Open Thread! We miss reading magazines in coffee shops, and going to book readings, and so we decided to celebrate our first magazine issue by connecting the writers with the readers. Today’s prompt:

What do you want to ask our Trust Mag writers? 

We’ve devoted our new issue of New_ Public Magazine to trust, in all its various forms and meanings.

We’re hoping that many of you have had a chance to read the issue (and if you haven’t, quick! there’s still time to get a question in) and that it’s gotten your mind spinning with ideas, not-yet-fully-developed-thoughts and questions about the rapidly evolving fringes of our internet lives. 

Here’s your chance to discuss the articles, and to ask our writers… absolutely anything about their piece. 

As a refresher, we had: 

Please mention the author by their full name so they can jump in and answer some of your questions. Our writers are in different parts of the world with complicated schedules, and many of them will be responding later. You can check back to see their responses, and you will get an email from Substack if someone replies to you directly.

We are assuming that you, like us, are looking for more flourishing places on the internet. We want this to be one of those places! Please treat others with openness, generosity and respect.
