The limits workshop series is a transition system, which shapes the work of activists, educators, and researchers. It does so, in part, by the development of language and tools and by catalyzing con- versations about reality and possible futures. Given this proposi- tion and drawing on ontologically oriented analysis and design, I explore the transition discourse of eight limits’ papers, which consider aspects of food. The papers represent competing views of the future of place and planet. Building on this review, I discuss worldviews and transitions, transitions and time, and I explore how formative and instrumental approaches in computing research can contribute to institutional and cultural adaptation.
