Quipit was a collective initiated at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

 

There are many perspectives from those involved in Quipit regarding what it was.

 

This is what I learned from my involvement in Quipit that continues to inform me:

 

Everything you pursue does not need to be pursued seriously.

There is more than one way to approach an idea and none are correct.

Collectives are influential when they feature a diversity of perspectives.

Critique enhances your understanding through alternative perspectives.

Some things are better learned from trying than from understanding rules.
