Gonzo Times is attempting to go in new directions. We are really looking to break from just having the type of political philosophy we are known for and get some other types of content here on the site. I have tried to keep Gonzo Times decentralized and we are going to really try to keep that up. In our moving forward we have contributors working on getting new types of content for the site and we are still looking for new contributors.
It is my intent to have Gonzo Times contributors self organize to make this site happen. We have always somewhat done this. But in going forward I am attempting to have the self organization be less of a thing where individuals just post as they wish like we currently function to a site where we are self organizing and cooperating to push out new content on a regular schedule.
To me this is a test in self management and self organization. We will become either a failure of the commons we so often hear about or we can be a success proving that the commons can create something wonderful.
If you are interested in joining us and taking ownership of the site as your please feel free to contact us here.
I hope that we will be able to organize teams to tackle specific scheduled weekly columns. Without a head editor these teams will hopefully be able to work together to accomplish the goal. If you feel you are up to the task of working with others, organizing and writing we would love to accept you as a part of Gonzo Times. It is my belief that we can create a model of worker organization and learn a lot about organizing in a decentralized manner this way.
What kind of content are we looking for?
Really Gonzo Times wants to break free from just political content and create an online zine that might appeal to more than just anarchists and communists. We hope to get new topics and new columns going here. The content and types of content will not be determined by myself, but by the contributors. We are looking for the content you feel that you might want to read or write about. So, if you have ideas for content, please contact us. Gonzo Times can be every bit your website as mine or any other contributors if you wish.
I look forward to hearing from you. And I hope will enjoy the content our contributors will be putting out. And to all those who have contributed over the last 5 years I thank every one of you. Those with us still and those who are no longer with us.
