#ParticipationSignal
Hello World,
Welcome to issue 1 of #ParticipationSignal. 
We’re always striving for ways to do things smarter, faster, different and BETTER. That inevitably means drawing people closer together regardless of the physical distance between them. That means challenging our own assumptions with new, sometimes contradictory ideas. That means finding time to think the long thoughts. That kind of creativity requires a constant stream of smart, cool stuff to read, watch and hear.
In that spirit, we’re going to be delivering to our Participation Movement members and #ParticipationSignal subscribers seven articles each week that we find compelling. Expect talk of business, technology, art, current affairs, humour and anything else that we’re excited to talk about and share.
On top of that, #ParticipationSignal will be filled with our own short bursts of writing, music recommendations, recipes and other effluvia that we fire around within our own company.
In short, we want to invite you into our minds, our team and our dialogues. We’d love for you to do the same. Send your thoughts, recommends and ideas to info@betterventures.co What’s got you fired up? We want to know.
And if you’d be so kind as to share this newsletter with any of your friends and colleagues who might dig it, we’d appreciate it. After all we’re better together, right?
Happy reading!
