About Me, Introduction:
Self-description: Social systems progress agent (thinker, writer, innovator, systems designer)
More immediate visions:
- I am designing and developing an ethical consumption rewards system (ECRS).
- Here is the introduction to the “Ethical Consumption Rewards System” http://tiny.cc/ecrs-intro
- I am developing a community in Ashland that is conscious of and designed for ecological and social system sustainability with some people from the group “Transition RVA”
- I am developing a networking system for social progress agents to catalyze synergies and collaboration towards social
- This is the site for the “Social Progress Agents” network - http://tiny.cc/social-progress-agents
Long term vision: to develop backcasting (preferred future) planning and simulation systems to facilitate social progress.
My content is inspired by social progress agents like Nelson Mandela and visionaries who can imagine ideal futures, like Utopian writers and other social science fiction writers. I hope it will provide people with inspiration and encouragement to obtain their own vision of their ideal future for themselves and their social systems.
