At first, hunting for someone to keep an eye on, I looked back to my devastated home state of Michigan. I read an interesting story from Forbes, talking about how a businessman was looking into turning some of Detroit city into farmland.
I couldn't find much progress being made on the project quite yet, and John Hantz doesn't really strike me as the in-it-for-the-Planet kind of person.
So I gave up and used one of the suggested links provided in the mission briefing.
I soon found the charming Emily Pilloton, from Project H Design
. She and it are awesome.
Watch her PopTech talk here.
Watch her Colbert Report appearance here.
So I sent her a message on Facebook, introducing myself. I asked the Project H website to send updates to my email, and I also now follow their Twitter (@ProjectHDesign).
I let her know that I'd be willing to help out from my humble range of Central California, if she needed a random hand.
