there’s a hilarious and wonderfully true little bit of subversive wackiness floating around blogland and youtubeland. since emergent village restructure recently to more toward a more grass-roots, organic future (part of which included the end of tony jones’ role as the ‘official’ national coordinator), a handful of people have been posting videos declaring themselves the new national coordinator. while this is all tongue-in-cheek, in a way, the message is: we are all the national coordinator, and nothing will happen if we don’t do it. it’s fantastic ownership, and awesomely fun.
here are a few of the videos:
joshua case, who i think got this whole thing going:
troy bronsink, who pulls it off even with a broken mic on his computer:
steve knight, short and sweet:
michael toy, who coins three fantastic new words, stringing them together to say “we are missiony in a jesish trajex”:
adam walker-cleaveland, who talks about “being in the ‘post-jonesian era'”:
john o-hara, who thanks adam walker-cleaveland for passing the torch:
i’m sure there will be more. i hope so!
