What experiences have shaped, tested, challenged or confirmed our beliefs about guns? User-submitted stories from all perspectives.

The material in the book, I am Not My Breast Cancer, published in 2008 by William Morrow/Harper Paperback, was culled from First Person Plural, a Small Group Dialogue convened by Web Lab in 2004.

Crossover Crossover convened a carefully-chosen group of filmmakers, interactive artists, designers, animators, writers, technologists, game designers, and web producers for an intensive week of experimentation and collaboration.
