Let’s annotate “The Roe Baby,” by Joshua Prager
Plus: Please sign up for this month’s discussion by this Sunday, June 19
This month, we’re reading “The Roe Baby,” by Joshua Prager. Big thanks to Debra, Carina, Summer, Abde, and Bonnie for already signing up for our June 26 conversation. We’ll be discussing the article on Zoom, 2:00 - 3:30 pm PT.
There’s still time to sign up if you’re interested. All you need to is do is reply to this email (or click here) and say, “I’m in.” Then I’ll send you a Google calendar invitation with more details. I especially welcome you if this will be your first Article Club discussion.
This week, we’re annotating the article. Here’s a copy we can annotate together. Annotating is a great way to connect with other Article Clubbers and share your thoughts about the piece, right inside the text. You can build on others’ comments or add your own. Try it, you’ll like it! (Remember, we don’t have to perform or be fancy at AC.)
Coming up this month
This week: We’ll annotate the article with fellow Article Clubbers.
Next week: We’ll listen to a podcast interview with Mr. Prager, who will share his thoughts about the article.
Sunday, June 26: We’ll discuss the article with fellow Article Clubbers.
Thank you everyone and have a great week!

Thank you so much for sharing insightful articles and leading article club all the time!
As I'm a big fan and believer of social annotation & learning-in-public, what you do really resonates with me! In terms of social annotation, it reminds me of Hypothesis (https://hypothes.is/) but what you do here is more focused on cohort and group. I like the focus!
As collective learning is how humans got smarter across generations, this is a great way to expand one's horizons! That's a part of the reasons why I'm building Glasp (https://glasp.co/), a social web highlighter. I assume we have similar vision and mission but with different approaches to achieve them. Our mission at Glasp is to democratize access to other people's learnings by allowing them to leave their learnings. I believe it gives the person a sense of contribution to humanity and a reason of being/existence. That's what I feel and believe.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for taking initiatives in this area and leading such a meaningful project!
