I did an interview the Jon Evans at Techcrunch (the social technology hub) earlier this week. Here it is.
I'm spending most of my time writing and editing the Resilient Communities letter (it's free to subscribe).
As I said in the interview, the reason I started the letter was because I strongly believe that the most successful, happiest people on the planet in twenty years will be living in resilient communities.
Lots of good stuff in the RC letter — from DiY sewage systems to how to power an entire neighborhood with solar energy.
Phi Beta Iota: Creating resilient communities from the bottom up is what the federal government should be but is not facilitating. We're on our own.
