A crash course in changing the world.
If you want to enter the dragons den, it's wize to tame the dragon first, especially if you want to use that den as a fire extinguishing business.
FACT: In the womb, we are assigned GENITALIA AFTER we are assigned/recognised as human - which is why you can only get to see the sex of your baby from about 25 weeks.
We are human before we are male and femail or transgender or…Continue

Since the arrival of Free solar roofing and Global Gyms...(financed by the five year global halt of spending on Space exploration, nuclear missile production and war and military operations) the latter idea taken from Hong Kong, where the first energy saving gym was constructed, we all have free power.
Everyone is scrambling for an appointment to go to the gym - they all know it is generating our power, and people are using the gyms for other reasons now - the same people are…Continue
Hi Guys and gals!
So, I've been toying with LOADS of different inventions, but I have opted to actually ACT for the mission. Now, this is REALLY lame - I hold my hands up...but...
For three days I have constructed this chore/electric use diary - I've edited out the irrelevant bits, but this should give you a rough idea of what I'm on about:
Each day (Friday,Saturday and Sunday): Washed up 5 times, steam cleaned the floor, had about 5 cups of tea,…Continue

I glance towards the wall calendar; 2020. I scribble in my diary:
It’s the fifth anniversary of ‘DinnerTimePods’!
Everyone here is so happy today. The atmosphere is…Continue
For my Act 2, I have been researching like mad, and thinking about how to do better my already greatly food secure country. It was struggle, but I wanted to complete the mission as stated, trather than just dump a load of knowledge share into the equation!
So – here’s what I did:…Continue
We in the UK are food secure. We know that if we wanted healthy diets, organic produce from locally sourced markets, we could if we really wanted to – get it.
Why am I talking like this – what do I mean “if we wanted?” I am going to give you some examples from the UK…Continue
I come from a food secure country. However, our urban ma**** aren't in touch with the sourses of the food. This is being overcome by the folowing means. This is just a drip in the ocean. THIS SHOULD BE THE ALL SINGING/DANCING SOLUTION - BUT IT ISN'T WORKING. Cast your eyes over these solutions that the government are so proud of:
1) Farmers Markets - Local farmers get to sell their produce in Urban Centres.
2) Abel and Cole - Organic fruit and vegetable boxes…Continue
A complete first draft of your novel.
Everyone has a book in them, some have several, and others have libraries. Why don’t we all have the skill to start the first steps of writing a novel? We do, we just need to know where to find the information and we need to know where to…Continue

I'd like to say that my next step was prompted by a recommendation from Bruce Haynes about this wonderful woman Frances Moore Lappe: http://liberationecologyblog.wordpress.com/
She is re-writing her best seller throughout summer 2010 and releasing it later in the year. Her original work, 'Liberation Ecology - Reframing Six Disempowering Ideas That Keep Us from Aligning with Nature - even our own' may be called something…Continue
I've been reading more notes from Nassim Nicholas Taleb that I'd like to share - it's short and sweet.
quoted from Taleb on this site: http://benatlas.com/2009/10/nassim-nicholas-taleb-on-tinkering/

SPARK stands out as my favourite evoke power.
It stands on its own. It precedes action, it craves initiative and excites the imagination and it begs on its knees and calls for action.
If the speed of brilliant changes occurs at the same rate as an economic downturn, I'd like the near future to look like this:
Global communication for all, Everyone has the internet including voice recognition and intelligent systems to translate unknown languages into the language you can read, meaning Itallians can talk directly to Mandarin etc..(you get the idea, I can't run through all the perms, LOL)
Money is equally…Continue
