What can we expect from Emergent in 2006? Apparently, not much. The National Coordinator for Emergent-US, Tony Jones, has written a cover story for the latest issue of Next-Wave titled "The State of Emergent 2006."
In this article, he says that there will be no new books and no big events. They will also be revamping their web site and working through how they can better assist Emergent cohorts. All things said, it sounds as if they are using 2006 as a time to refocus and to plan the future.
It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out... They have built up a lot of momentum (as well as criticism) over the past year. Maybe this "down time" will be productive. I'm skeptical, but we shall see.
