New Stories

Here’s another fantastic list which I found on my Facebook wall one day and saved it before it scrolled off into FB’s memory verse.

I need to go through it, and organize it, as well as add to it. For now, I’m enclosing the entire message I saved. Enjoy!

Kaya Rose and I are about to hop into a miniRV and embark on a journey of a lifetime. Other people such as Josh, Andrew, and Glenn may joining us for legs of the adventure. The Colaboratori has gone mobile and we are going to spend the next few years traveling around the country meeting amazing people, supporting badass projects, and documenting it for our community. Trail-blazing for the win.

And, we can use your help.

We think our network may have more intelligence than we do individually? What amazing people do you think we should meet? What inspiring projects would you like us to put our energy into?

Right now, we are focusing on sustainability and resilience based stuff. We are particularly interested in whole systems infrastructure projects, permaculture, collaborative consumption, makerlabs, other colaboratoris, and hackerspaces.

Everyone! Feel free to enter projects and their websites, if they have any, below! (Also, on that note, feel free to organize into categories, or in any other way you feel fit!)

I guess you must know John Robb from Resilient Communities.. he put this in his mail recently…

Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Cooking for Solutions” event.

It’s an unusually cool conference in that it uses ‘good food’ as a way to get leading farmers, fishermen, scientists, chefs, and environmentalists together in one place to explore long term solutions to global food production.
