Dec1: #reverb10:

Prompt for December 1 - One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you? Confused yet? More about #reverb10 until I get around to posting an explanation ~ this is all very spur of the moment, on impulse. I'm trying to resist the impulse for signing up under more than one nom de blog and theming them.

Concordance. Harmony, putting things in order, mostly coming to terms, but not quite acceptance, not yet and certainly not total acquiescence or subservience.

According to WikipediaConcordance can mean:
 That should do for now and on so many levels, some (cosmology, math, statistics) I'd have to know more about. Concordance suggests connotative relations too: Concordat, concord, concordant. [Middle English concordaunt, from Old French concordant, from Latin concordns, concordant-, present participle of concordre, to agree, from concors, concord-, agreeing; see concord.]

Do I really have to pick a word for 2011 now?  I'll take "multiliteracies," bearing in mind that I could just as easily switch them out, "multiliteracies" for 2010 and "concordance" for 2011. Does that mean there a connection? Do you see it? Good, explain it to me when you get a chance.
