My life in brief

I can't seem to get a proper blog post together so a summary will have to suffice for the time being. While I like to use this outlet as a way to stay transparent with my professional goings on, I've found it very easy to simply forget I have a blog. Here is a list of the things I am involved in right now:
  • Last weekend I attended a Planetwork creativity session outside of San Francisco. A group of us spent a day diving into the idea of a "network of networks" and of supporting the emergence of a global digital conciousness.
  • I continue to work for Interra Project, this time for the Boston Main Streets organization which is helping bring the program to Boston soon.
  • For Sustainable Woods Network I am shifting my focus into developing a marketing strategy.
  • Next week I head to NYC for the Second Conference for Worker Ownership and Workplace Democracy where I hope to learn everything there is to know about starting a worker owned coop.
  • On a related note, I am involved in starting a worker owned coop with six people here in Seattle. Known as the Web Collective, we are a group of independent consultants who want to work together on projects that make us happy. That doesn't seem too much to ask.
Yes, busy and loving my new home and office in Seattle.
