1. Name, location, contact info (phone, email, Skype).

My name is Ian Cody Harrison but I go by Cody. Currently I am a bit of a nomad. My location at this exact moment is Cambridge, MA. I’ll be in Samford, CT tomorrow, New York City on Thursday, and Washington DC this weekend. My main employer is a company called Pilus Energy, which is based in Cincinnati, OH so I am often there as well. I grew up in Kalispell, Montana and get back there as often as I can in the winter and summer, which is not as often as I would like.

I heard about OSE in 2009 I believe while doing an Internet search for resource based economies. I volunteered at FeF for about a week in August of 2011. I had been wanting to do a DPV ever since hearing about OSE but was worried that due to limited expertise and time constraints I wouldn’t be a good candidate.

Is there space in the HabLab or will I need to camp?
