I like Tim O'Reilly

I mean, me and everyone, right?



But what Tim's doing is especially meaningful to me, because he's a force for education in a state that used to have one of the best education systems in the world. The UCs (Berkeley, UCLA, San Diego, Santa Cruz, every jewel in the crown) have been decaying for the last 20 years because of a restructuring in their money base. Property taxes were dropped in the 70s, and so education funds dropped. For a long time, the UCs attempted to combat the pressure… Continue

Evokation - let's create our way to greater mental health.





1. The Place. Where will you make a difference? Describe the institution, community, town or other geographic or virtual space in which you will focus your efforts.



Los Angeles. It's one of the largest cities in the world, with numerous large-city problems. There are myriad racial tensions, a long history of police problems. The city has historically attracted runaway children from around the nation. The local Catholic bishop was directly implicated… Continue

Donation to Gobal Giving

Posted site on Facebook, and what an incredible aggregator it is!

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem?
