Over the past several months, members of the New Models community came together to produce a physical book—NM Codex Y2K20—precipitating, in analogue form, the events of 2020, an extraordinarily online year. The book comprises essays, memes, image spreads, comment threads, audio codes, and other informational formatsconducive to ink-on-paper. In parallel, NM members proposed an experimental digital glossary, dubbed the NM Webdex, a uniquely navigable repository of the symbols and terms that underpin the discourse and information architecture of the New Models community.
The NM Webdex 2020 team is led by Bradley Griffith, Will Freudenheim, and @phm.
