HO! TRIBE! April 1st brought us poetry month, and on that day of inauguration and celebration many members of this community came together for POTLATCH 2012 to share and co-create. (Photos, updates, and CoCo content to come -- follow link above for gallery). We read, we shared, we sang, we broke bread, we laughed, and we felt -- well, I'll speak for myself -- I felt in my very cells a shift towards what can be possible when a community commits to themselves and each other, and the work we make individually and together. The elation, the purity of relaxation into common purpose, the love and mutual respect has carried on not only from this event but from this week's posts, kicking off Exit Strata's wholehearted effort to serve as a platform for this love-in and value creation via virtual space. 

   "CoCo" stands for Collaborative Content. We held our first open Salon for the selected contributors for issue 1 (and friends) on January 22nd, 2012. Here is the text of the original invitation, which describes our intentions:

Friends, Colleagues, Lets-Fix-This-Fucked-up-Country Men and Women,
We would like to invite you to be close to our hearts.
You are close to our hearts.
We would like to invite to make, close to you, our hearts.
To our hearts, close, we invite to make you.
To understand eXiT STraTa as merely a magazine would hurt its feelings.
eXiT STraTa is a strategy, a process, a community, a creative approach to living life and leaving a trail behind you.
Any publications associated with eXiT STraTa are most accurately described as documentation; of an archive of the production of eXsT which can be replicated in two dimensions. But the STraTa could never be confined to two dimensions, nor to the timespace limitations of the page -- quietly growing in a chrysalis of 0's and 1's, and presented to you, a select few, here in Soft Launch Beta, the eXsT website - which will provide a constant stream of content, a place for meeting, discovering, and sharing.  eXsT_weB will offer room for video and audio content as well as in depth profiles of the creators who make up our global community, across a wide range of disciplines.
