Michael Hardt narrates his first meetings with Antonio Negri and describes the development of their collaboration and their compositional methods in relation to their respective backgrounds and critical aims. Their collaboration began when Negri invited Hardt to join the editorial board of the journal Futur Antérieur. The methods of collective writing that they continue to use have their basis in the “assignment” model of composition that is common among groups that publish journals of political intervention. Collaboration of this sort is a deindividualizing process that results in a writing of the common.
