We present Postext (pronounced POS-TEH) – a platform for collective thinking. This generic system was originally created in order to assist the community of complexity research to self-organize (the system is operative and can be found at http://complexity.huji.ac.il). In this paper we describe the basic philosophical ideas that promoted its creation, and the circumstances of its specific application to the complexity community.
