Communisation: A Reader?

Listening to the HMNYC recordings I thought it would be excellent if we could have a reader of communisation / new struggles, via text versions, or expanded/new papers by Jasper Bernes, Evan, Jason E. Smith, the previous and future work of John Cunningham, a revised and up to date version of Alberto's report on the Tarnac 9, work by endnotes, Not Bored!, and no doubt loads of other people I don't know of engaged with this material. Of course this is the kind of thing Verso should do, but it would be more likely to be taken up by AK Press, semiotext(e), or self-published.
Also, for those of you following TC their paper 'The Glass Floor' has appeared courtesy of Riff-Raff.
Trying to remove the question mark from this post by putting together said 'reader', more like a series of critical reflections as the original texts are widely available. It seems, touch wood, to be coming together, although perhaps I could do with some more on 'commonism', as for some reason I thinking of calling it Communisation, Commonism, Communism - and perhaps it would be good to have something on the convergence of communisation with anarchism. Of course much would depend on getting publisher acceptance, and also agreement on the number of contributors. Projects are always exciting in this quasi-virtual stage, before reality gets its grubby mits on them.

Hell, you know I'm down for this... By the way, about to send you some notes on recent actions here, might be of interest to you.
