Bread is the new name for the money but it doesn't have to be a physical paper or coin it can be points you can acc**ulate or stamps that you get punched onto a card if you do not have internet (they are all interchangeable).

I love that Kiva was started by a woman and a young woman at that. I also love that crowd sourcing has a good purpose.It is amazing to me that somehow all these people were contacted and communicated with and brought together to better themselves.

One of my students sent me a link to Kiva and I made a donation to a group of people who were working together with pigs. I picked the group because it was being led by a woman.…

Pseudo-Money or Barter Bucks or Jenn Backs

I never liked money as a concept. It seems to highlight all the bad things about human nature like greed, power, corruption and cruelty. I often fantasize about living so closely to the land and not wanting for more but I don't know if that is even reasonable now that I have been spoiled and know what the internet is.

It is interesting to think of all the different ways we trade value like with paypal or coupons or bus tokens or fair/raffle tickets but it is even more interesting to… Continue

Happy World Water Day

Well the title means a few things:

everyone is happy

everyone is involved (the wh*** world)

there is water and

it last at least a day

so...this is how I envision it. No matter who you are or where you are on this special day you get up. You drink some clean water and think about water the wh*** time you are drinking it. Next to broaden the circle of what gets water you offer water to another creature like your spouse, child, pet or plant. The next part of the… Continue

Water Warriors

There are so many issues around water. There is the need for clean water for creatures to drink and swim in for life. There is the need for enough water flow for crops and natural system cycles. There is the need for climate stability so that floods and huge rain storms do not kill too much.

I picked Paul Jenkin with the Surfrider Foundation because he is working to remove the Matilija Dam (he has been working on this for almost twenty years now! and he is almost done). By removing… Continue

Shower Calendar and Competition!

I love the way that this human computer interaction allows us to give ourselves feedback and to learn from our behavior in real time. I also love how this shower activity reminds me about the stealth shower game that Jane McGonigal wrote about in her book "Reality is Broken".

The other invention I find simply elegant is the water distiller or desalinator… Continue

Humanure Party!

or...what goes around comes around

or...human waste from cradle to grave

My party is all about celebrating the wonderful biological machines that our bodies are. We produce our own renewable, recycled energy source. Everything will be poop powered!

Composting toilets, humanure plant fertilizer, biobug vehicles, dry packed poop bricks for bonfires!…

Making usable oil from recycled plastics!

Akinori Ito, the CEO of Blest, a Japanese company has invented a machine which sits on the counter top and accepts plastics that you feed into it. Any plastics that you find around the world or from items you have purchased at the grocery store can be fed into the machine. The machine does its magic and oil comes out the other end! This oil can be used to heat homes, cook food, run vehicles etc.

I know this is not technically a renewable energy source but the fact is we have created… Continue

solar power everything!

This is the hardest mission objective so far! At first I just fell back to something I had to do this weekend because my dryer quit working. I put up a laundry line in the yard and used the sun to dry my clothes. However that is not really powering something but I still lie the idea of using the sun. Solar power seems like it could save the world so I think I am going to figure out how to get a solar panel to charge things with. I always appreciated purses that had solar panels on them which… Continue

2020 Ultimate Dinner

I always think I would like to be completely vegetarian but I take that back. My future meal is going to include insects and grubs as well as vegetables.


Deep fried crickets with creamy dipping sauce. The sauce is made from mint leaves and yogurt. I make the yogurt easily and it last about a week.


Spicy rice or rice noodle dish with chilies, onions, cilantro, green beans, and eggs. Veges from the garden and eggs from… Continue

When the rains took our roads away...

We live in a mountain valley and we are accessible by three roads. One year it rained so hard that all the roads washed away and we were left high and stranded for two weeks. During this time it became clear that we were highly dependent upon external food sources for our survival.

Since then many different community efforts have begun to ameliorate these issues. We have a CSA program (community supported agriculture) where local farmers deliver weekly boxes of seasonal vegetables to… Continue

My Best-case scenario future... ALIVE

2020 is nine years from now, by then I will be 47! At that time in my life I would like to still be living with my loving husband and maybe with any luck my wondrous kitty wills till be alive then too. My aspirations are that I will have finished my doctorate in earning technologies, I will have a job through which I can earn a living but also feel good about and that I will be living in a world that is not on the brink of despair and disaster.

Ten years from today I will be a person… Continue

Jane McGonigal is my hero!

I learned about this game Urgent Evoke by reading "Reality is Broken: How Games Can Save the World".

I love everything about Jane, her style, her brains, her moxy and her openess to share positive thoughts with the world. I already follow her on twitter and now on facebook and I have used her personal blog as a way to model my own blog page. Most importantly I contribute to her site called:


Some of the things I think she brings to the world are a… Continue

Social Innovation Tips: My Favorite(s)

I am going to combine a few of the tips that I read in exhibit A into one (sort of cheating but it works well in my head that way).

I am going to combine creativity, simplicity and think like a child.

I like all of these because it reminds me of necessity is the mother of invention. You work with what you have to be creative to come up with solutions. The best solutions fall under the acronym KISS (keep it simple stupid!) because those solutions are elegant and illustrate… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

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.
