Making something 10 times cheaper by removing 90 percent of the material is the advice that resonates with me today. When I was in Johannesburg lately, I bought a lovely silk gla**** case from a woman at a flea market. It was only a few dollars and was made by a collective of women in Soweto.

I have chosen to follow Hugo because he co-founded Lebônê Solutions, Inc. He and his colleagues meet off-grid energy and lighting needs in the developing world. Very cool that they generate electricity from soil microbes to power LED lights, cell phones, and radios.
Thinking, loving, and acting spontaneously like a child is a big lesson in learning, or more appropriately, *un*learning. Children have no limit to their thinking and in order to solve big problems like we have in this Evoke scenario, we have to pull out all the stops on constraints. Mega-picture is where it is at.

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out.
