Update # 18 - July 1, 2009 - PHASE ONE HAS ENDED - WIKI CLOSING

Dear Contributors,

A fine greetings and a happy July to you all!

The day has come. The first phase of the Dictionary project, the 1st writing phase, has ended. Congratulations to each and every one of you for making the time in your busy lives to help create this visionary resource, and for being so patient with my constant nudging. We are honored by your presence and contributions.

We are ending Phase One with 50 authors who have identified 350 key terms, and will directly define one-third of them.

To review the recent flurry of entries you can go to the "Recent Changes" page. http://resurgence.opendemocracy.net/index.php/Special:Recentchanges

We will need to close the wiki for a few weeks while the editors review and edit the first round of contributions and prepare you all for the comments phase. If you have already entered your definitions, you now have some time to relax.

If you have not entered your definitions, please do so at your earliest opportunity, or let us know when we should expect them.

We won't lock the Wiki until we know everyone's disposition, so fear not, you have not missed an opportunity. But we do need everyone to accommodate us as soon as they can.

Sometime in the next couple of weeks you will receive detailed instructions on how to go about the Comments and Editing Phase, which we hope to begin by August 1st.

Until then, I am available for all question, comments, concerns, assistance, or troubleshooting.
