Foolscap's guiding principles are the "Four 'B's":
We believe ideas make the best toys. We take them apart to see how they work, and put them together in new, better ways.
What ideas do you want to explore?
We come together to form a community. We share food and conversation, stories and books. We welcome you to join us.
What makes you feel at home?
We connect communities by giving them a place to show their most interesting side. Foolscap fosters the unexpected connections that help communities grow.
Who are you hoping to meet?
We take risks along the way to making things better. If we've been doing something well for years, then it's time for us to try to do it better. We may stumble, but we'll always learn.
How would you make a better community?
