Here I present some indications of what I'm up to and have done at other times.

This is the beginning of a work of narrative writing and map-making. It follows 1980's *Living Thinkwork* and maps the business of journeying towards a living economy . . on paths of skill, in the foothills of the future. It's the workspace for pattern-based, narrative writing and map-making on . . activist life, commoning, pattern language(ing), *formacion*, emotional commons and making the living economy.

This wiki contains the text of a draft chapter for a book in honour of economist Robin Murray. The draft is 30k+ words, in five main sections with a short intro and coda. It includes thinking on the structure and principles of a 'college of conviviality' and a pattern language of activist practice.

Here we elaborate a conceptual frame of activist practice in commoning, built around altered forces of production (fop) and altered relations of production (rop). This is proposed as a pattern language of Making the living economy. It also furnishes a frame for schools and faculties of a 'college of conviviality'.

Guidance and collaborators.
