you will find me, in the broken places of the world, building new blocks to fill the h***s we knocked out.
to paraphrase Bruce Sterling, the unsustainable is the testbed for the future.
where will i be? where else but in the thick of the mess.
thats where the interesting things happen. innovation and the future happen when people are push, where resources are scare, where the situation is unique.
and where its messy. dirty. hungry, toxic, broken.
something like africa or... west texas.
why? because these places are so terminally messed up that you can go there and do something! and you can push the limits of what can be done because life is on the line. its make it work or things falling apart. so you work.
personally i want to be doing lab work.
some things can't be saved. you can't always save a species, cause a species isn't just an animal or a plant, a species is an entire ecosystem, the things it eats, the predators tat keep it in check, temperature, soil ph, all of these things and more. so sometimes it might be a good idea to fill in some of these gaps, since we were so good at making these gaps in the first place.
filling in the h***s we made in the world.
