Uncommon's story is captured in the Dispatch, the weekly community newsletter, which ran for over four years. The history has been archived here, including the delightful guest contributions and the separate member newsletter.
They capture the community first taking shape, big milestones and small steps forward, building the site, and experiments like Table for Six phone conversations. Each edition also includes thoughtful replies to the previous week's prompt.
Here are a few highlights if you’re just starting:
- A Community of Possibilities
- An Uncommon Island Called Ikaria
- A Preface for a Community by Jack Cheng
- The API of You by Kathy Sierra
- The Beauty of Imperfection by Jon Bell
- A Big Dangerous Idea by Jennifer Brook
Questions were the heart of Uncommon. Each email dispatch included a prompt and the next edition the responses. The treasure trove of community prompts is ready for your next dinner party, campfire conversation, or long walk with a friend.
