What is this thing?

Planworld is a difficult thing to describe; you will have to experience it for yourself. It is probably of most value when you know someone who keeps a plan or if there are others who will be reading yours. It is much like a weblog in that it becomes your place to publish; however, the format and content are entirely up to you.

Planworld evolved at Amherst College throughout the 90s on a VMS cluster and continues to evolve during the zeros in a web-based form, much like this one. Grinnell College hosts a similar community, as does a group around Pensacola, FL ( If you think that your institution, business, or group of friends would benefit from something similar, please consider setting up a planworld node of your own.

This site serves two purposes: Firstly, it is a public demonstration of the planworld system. Secondly, it is an access point for planless interlopers (those who lack their own planworld node); using this, you can read friends' plans on other systems (such as Amherst planworld or without needing an account there.
