The SSE let people hold "stocks" in three causes that
affect life in Somerville Mass.: Community, The Environment,
and The Arts.
These shares changed
value depending on current events (news articles; laws; policies,
etc.), and individual actions (the things that community
members like yourself do). So, for instance, when we heard about
a number of positive things people had done for the community, community
stocks went up. Or... if a number of negative things happened, then
stocks went down.
All of these current
events and individual actions were collected, and written up as
part of this project.
Note: stocks weren't
worth any money. Think of them as a game. Or as a metaphor.
