Utopia was designed to stimulate imagination in others as much as it was meant to present the imaginary vision of a single author. It’s an open text. Here are two ways to enter the text:

Discuss Utopia on Social Book
When Thomas More’s Utopia was published in 1516 it included copious marginal notes, some profound, others silly, likely contributed by More’s friend and co-conspirator in the Utopia project, Peter Giles. Since then, and with the exception of a few scholarly editions, the practice of reproducing marginalia has fallen off. Using the Institute for the Future of the Book’s Social Book platform, the Open Utopia is an effort to restart the tradition — and open up the practice.  Enter Social Book »

Create Utopia on Wikitopia
wikitopiaUtopia was imagined and composed by a singular individual. Wikitopia aims to open up the process of imagination and authorship by offering the opportunity for readers, collectively, to write and edit their own Utopia.  And the beauty of a Wiki is that it’s never complete: there is always another iteration to be created and released. Utopia stays open.  Become collective authors and editors of your own Utopia. Enter Wikitopia »
