@ a low impact community build in Dorset, England Summer 2009
I'm a certified permaculture designer, amateur hacker, and ecological economics student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. I work for the Technology Policy and Assessment Center doing science, technology and innovation policy research. I have a diverse background of experience in biofuels, robotics and fabrication, cooperative management, farming, mycology, self-build housing, social justice activism, online collaboration, and geographic information systems (GIS). I have worked with social centers, small-holding farms and communes and artist/hacker collectives in the Southeast United States, England and Denmark.

There are many platforms for this, and integrating them into a working package is the goal. Our work is challenging because it goes far beyond the encyclopedic throwdown of Wikipedia into actual production. "
