This past weekend I was at the Bioneers conference in San Rafael. Quite a remarkable event. Around 3000 attendees and many great speakers. A stimulating mix of inspiration, activism and ecological solutions. People I particularly enjoyed: Lynn Margulis (co-creator of the Gaia hypothesis) talking about the wild lives of bacteria; Hunter and Amory Lovins (co-authors of "Natural Capitalism") on rethinking business; Janine Benyus (author of "Biomimicry") on how to get our next technological breakthroughs from the superior technologies of nature; Caroline Casey (mythological astrologer and radio host) on Visionary Activism; John and Nancy Todd on creating ecological industrial parks and eco-enterprises. And many more.

Thanks for being such a pace setter. I run out of steam trying to keep up. :-)

That is one impresive presenters list. Some I have had connection with. There are hours of reading and research in this material. Whew! Hope I can keep up.

Yeah, its amazing what these guys are accomplishing. I have quite a backlog of books and websites to go through myself. I'm reading "Natural Capitalism" for one thing.

Spent hours here yesterday. Get booted off line and have to boot back up. My sleep pattern is inside out right now. So I come here. Thaks for all the special quiet spaces like a library for instance. This is sort of like a library. Such a variety of information.
