A Weekly Discussion
Let’s See What We Catch
“The Net” is a Thursday discussion with creators and thinkers online. “Let’s see what we catch” is to suggest both the improvisational nature of these discussions and the fact that we never know who is going to show up. There is no plan for these discussions beyond very open questions, and ultimately we have a “coffee house”-vibe in mind.
“In the spirit of eunoia,” the second subtitle, is meant to honor an organization O.G. Rose was part of between 2008 and 2014 in Charlottesville Virginia, though “The Net” has no official affiliation with that organization now. “Eunoia” can be loosely translated as “beautiful thinking,” a phrase we have always loved, for it recalls the three infinites — the good, the true, and the beautiful. We included the second subtitle to honor that creative community which was so formative and meaningful to us.
