    2. 2. Since the launch of Richard Nash’sRed Lemonade site—the firstiteration of his planned Cursorplatform—talk has been buzzingamong writers about it. The questionI’ve heard, literally on the street inNew York when I’ve bumped intopeople, and online, is this: how is thisdifferent from any other attempt atonline writing communities?—Brian Joseph Davis, FoundingEditor, Joyland.ca
    3. 3. Historical attempts at these largeonline writing communities have allshown that too big a net is cast overthe notion of “writing” as a singularactivity and goal when, rather,“writing” is a writhing mass of everevolving code between people.—Brian Joseph Davis
    4. 4. Instead of training readers to bewriters—the purported goal of manyField of Dreams-like writing websites—Red Lemonade is training writers tobe readers and act as citizens of theircraft. That, I know for a fact, will resultin sales.—Brian Joseph Davis
