I have been working on maps recently

I've been taking a course at the Peer to Peer University - School of Webcraft called Online Maps with OpenLayers.

I've started with a current map of the branches of the Windsor Public Library using OpenStreetMap.

Rain barrel for a data cloud

Geographically speaking, I live in a very safe area. No nearby volcanoes or fault lines. Flooding and fire might be a possibility but the infrastructure to proactively deal with these problems are in place.

The greatest threat in the natural disaster category are tornadoes but they are small, infrequent, and you don't really need a warning system to know that there's trouble brewing: the sky turns a strange sick colour that lets you know that you better find cover… Continue

Common Ground and Local Distinctiveness

The example of Maasi Weather Forecasting in Tanzania in The Traditional Knowledge Case Studies reminded me of one of my favourite environmental groups: Common Ground.

Common Ground's work is varied but can be based back to its tenant of "celebrate local distinctiveness". If we don't discover, care, and nurture about what makes a place unique, we will end up living in what has taken over most of…

A city built on rock and roll would be structurally unsound

The first result from my online search for "windsor ontario disaster plan" was for the Archives and Library where I am employed. This did not reassure.

But with some digging, I found a link to the City of Windsor Emergency Response Plan Bylaw (#98-2005 as amended, December 7, 2009) [pdf]. As I scanned through it, I kept seeing the word, radio which gave me pause.

The bylaw specifies who is in the Community… Continue

not sure about
"cities are our future"
i think they are our past having outlined their use...
and thus the notion of "citizen" would also be eroded
and the wisdom of natural living be learned...

i like your 1 million solution...
i think the question would be better if it were 1 million in a small area
imagine what a million-sized town could do if they worked together...?

despite our difference
like everyone in this game
i think we share more similarities

you are a good person :)
and i hope at the end of this game
they don't just pick top scores or someone out of the hat from the top 100
and we have a way to personally recommend
because you'd get my vote :)

be well!

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
