I am one You are one S/he is one One in a million Welcome to a remarkable story. It is a story about the readers of a magazine, about who they are, what they do, and what they want of their magazine. A story about people who work in, and for, agriculture and rural development in the countries of Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP), about people who share many livelihoods, many hopes, untold ambitions and one magazine: Spore. On the front side of this poster, the readers of Spore explain how they use Spore. This side gives the results of a survey of Spore readers. Whether you are a reader of Spore, or want to become one, or just want to know more of the story, please read on, read carefully. A world will go open for you, a little bit more open than it was before you started. The world today has 6.2 billion inhabitants, or 6,218,963,843* people. Each of these people, each of us, is part of a complex web of living species, flora and fauna. Each person, each of us, maintains many varied relationships with other people, and with the elements around and within her and him: air, water, and minerals. Those relationships take many forms, and degrees of intensity, ranging from indifference to great passion. Each relationship is, to a greater or lesser extent, a part of the life of each of us. Of all the people in the world, more than one million read Spore. It is, to a greater or lesser extent, a part of the life of each person who reads it. Every magazine has a relationship with a reader, every reader with her or his magazine, true. But in the case of Spore the passion seems to overrule any casual indifference in a way that, well, only passion can. It is a relationship brimming with loyalty and trust, care and complicity, pride and joy. Above all, a shared commitment. Here is the summary report of the Uses of Spore Survey. It is a remarkable story of what has become, in unexpected numbers and with more depth than had been appreciated, a phenomenon. Of the share of a magazine in people s lives, in their work, in their dreams. The Stars of Spore. * as of 15 August 2002, source: IDRC
