Common Ground Introduction

Common Ground Briefing Book

We've begun the process of laying out a Briefing Book which is intended to act as a mechanism for community input and discussion. As it evolves, each Briefing Book will support members old and new as they seek to understand the different aspects of the Priority area as they pertain to national prosperity. These Briefing Books are not Big Tent Nation's 'position papers' on anything - they will represent the diverse community's assessment of the problem and its possible solutions.

Take a look at the current state of the Infrastructure Briefing Book here (or by clicking on the image above), and be sure to fill out the survey by clicking the link at the end of the Briefing Book. Then come back and join in a more freewheeling discussion about what's working and what's not in the Infrastructure Briefing Book. Here are some ways you can get involved to hone our community's understanding of Infrastructure in the United States; use the comments section of this post to discuss these and other questions:

  1. Are the issues represented without bias? Let us know if you think there's a 'slant' to the material.
  2. Are the full range of issues represented? Nominate additional topics for inclusion.
  3. Is a diversity of opinion and perspective included? Are the experts cited diverse, and do they represent a full set of reasoned perspectives? Let us know if there's an expert or perspective missing - post a website we should reference, or an expert we should consult.

As always, content here at Big Tent Nation must be reasoned, rational and supported by facts. Opinion is fine, but it must be supported by an honest assessment of the truth. Disagreement on problems and solutions is inevitable - and essential in any complete understanding of the state of Infrastructure.
