“Thrivability... the designer's role... pays attention to... details of life hidden in the landscape... The invisible frontiers... where modernity has failed to make good on its promises... the wanderer around invisible peripheries, the witness and facilitator of emergent states.”

O'Dwyer, Rachel. “That was when, in February of 2007, someone mentioned the word 'thrivability' to me, and I knew I found the term that described what I wanted to create in the world. At that time, according to google searches then, there were only 2 people talking about it, one of which set me on my path.”

Russell, Jean. Thrivability: Breaking Through to a World that Works 
: "Thrivability. I first heard the word at a wiki conference in February 2007. I’d like to be able to say the effect was like lightning, but it was more like a pot slowly filling - one drop of curiosity joining another, day after day. Over time, questions began to cascade.")
