POROI 10.1 contains articles by Celeste Condit, G. Thomas Goodnight, and Joshua Welsh. Their essays are linked by a thematic concern with how new technologies affect common sense and deliberation.

They are about how rhetorical scholars are working with scientists as communication consultants on funded collaborative research projects.
