- Our massive brainstorming document.
- The discussion about fracking is just raging right now and we keep finding examples in the media that draw us in. Here are a few selections:
- “Pennsylvania Hunting and Fracking Vie for State Lands,” NY Times, Nov. 12, 2011 (thanks, Ross)
- “The Fracking Industry Admits to Employing Military Psychological Operations on American Citizens,” Business Insider, Nov. 2011 (thanks, Christina)
- “Boomtown: High paying jobs, no experience required,” Rock Center with Brian Williams (MSNBC), October 31, 2011
- “Game Changer,” This American Life, July 8, 2011
- “Down Under the Farm: Concerns grow about Marcellus Shale gas drilling near food production,” Pittsburgh City Paper, June 2, 2011
- Googlisms: a perfect starting place for a play we want to be multi-voiced, unbiased, and complex.
- Mini-retreats: We had our first mini-retreat in Brooklyn from 21-22 January, 2012. We read tons of fracking news, covered the walls of Cory’s apartment in diagrams, nailed down lists of researchers to contact, and played Fracking Pictionary.
