V341: Venture

The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach. ~ FDR

Sounds like Venture to me.

  1. An undertaking that is dangerous, daring, or of uncertain outcome.
  2. A business enterprise involving some risk in expectation of gain.
  3. Something, such as money or cargo, at hazard in a risky enterprise.
v. ven•tured, ven•tur•ing, ven•tures
  1. To expose to danger or risk: ventured her entire fortune.
  2. To brave the dangers of: ventured the high seas in a small boat.
  3. To express at the risk of denial, criticism, or censure: "I would venture to guess that Anon., who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman" Virginia Woolf.
  1. To take a risk; dare.
  2. To proceed despite possible danger or risk: ventured into the wilderness.

As I have said before, the Brits are way ahead of us on this one. What’s more, all the workshops and the questioning – What’s working, What’s not working? – are shared via the viral world. I am so grateful to Transition Culture and grateful for the internet.
