Pre-Capstone Phase, Output Packet 4, Section 1302
Published July 1st, 2015
This output packet is focussed on one project, which I have come into since I published my last output packet, Regenerative Dynamics on December 1st, 2014. My output packets have been focussed on the lead-up to my capstone project, a Regenerative Enterprise Incubator, which will serve as a place for entrepreneurs to work together to build just and sustainable businesses. While this is still my capstone project, another parallel project has become the center of my work and is necessary to focus my energy on before I go back to working on the incubator.
This project is defining and building a team to implement Coism, a new economic system to replace Capitalism as the dominant economic ideology. I feel that it is necessary to set the larger context for what my incubator is trying to achieve, and to use Coism to build a community to implement it.
I will go into detail about why Coism is needed, what it is, and how we are going to create it in the world. I will also briefly update you on the progress with the incubator and a few side projects that support both of these endeavors. I will also give some context about my life currently and how my personal development is shaping my projects.

How to Read this Output Packet
There are three main components of this output packet, the core report, supporting evidence, and commentary. The core report consists of the "Introduction", "Core Report", and "Outcomes".
The supporting evidence are the conversations I had and the materials that I read and wrote as a part of this project. Conversations and materials I produced are on the page "Supporting Evidence". Websites, books, and other materials I read are on the page "Annotated Resource Review" with summaries and notes.
The commentary are in the pages titled "Process Reflections" and "Pathway Review". It includes the design of my output packet, how I integrated feedback from my previous output packets, how I managed time and promises, what I have accomplished from my original Learning Intentions and Pathway Design and how that design has changed.
There are tabs at the top of the page where you can navigate between the sections. Below is a full table of contents, which you can click on to navigate as well.
