936668_10202824703121616_5280916234555642506_nWhile you were doing business as usual, your cheese has moved.   The Yellow pages, newspaper and magazines will always exist, but substantial market shifts have changed that game too: according to this article at http://www.theguardian.com/advertising/digital-media-trends-2014-trends:

“Mobile devices will not ONLY “replace” desktops

It is no secret that we are deserting desktops for tablets and smartphones, and following tablet gifting bonanza this Christmas, mobile traffic is set to overtake desktop in early 2014. John Lewis is predicting that 2013 will see the UK’s first ‘mobile Christmas’ with traffic from mobile phones and tablets overtaking that from desktops for the first time on Christmas Day. But not only mobile devices will surpass desktops in terms of traffic, they will excel them in enabling people do so much more on the internet: anytime, anywhere.  And marketers need to be prepared for the always-on consumer.” (source here)

The calendar below is an above the Equator calendar, syncing the Lunar Calendar  (Moon means month) as the primary, synced with the the Solar Calendar (secondary),  the Gregorian Calendar  to provide  a clearer picture of historical and religious events and the patterns of when they happen.  We will be creating local versions with this information and also local events from Facebook and the local Chamber of Commerce – we are building the biggest social net in each town, all free, sponsored by local business.  The Secret Calendar is not published anywhere at this time, (the book release party is on the 23rd – the evening before Rosh Hashanah 2014 – which will be announced with trumpets at sundown). 

In the two volumes being edited for production now, the Calendar starts on Noah’s Birthday

This year, 9/24/2014 or September 23 at sundown is Rosh ha Shana. Although Rosh ha Shana is the turn of the year, it is not the beginning of the calender. The months are numbered from spring, but the turn of the year is in Fall.  Exodus 34:22

Genesis 8:4 The year is based on Noah’s age. This is where the ark landed on the highest mountain. They did not get out of the ark because the waters were not dried from the face of the earth.

2014 | the Year for Independent Media – SEO – Facebook – Google

35 of 1001 | New Media Revenue Model – 1300 Independent Agents Needed in every City – Earn while you learn!

According to this report by Newspaper Association of America (naa.org): “Circulation revenue for U.S. newspapers recorded a second consecutive year of growth, rising 3.7% to $10.87 billion in 2013, according to preliminary data compiled by the Newspaper Association of America…

Key Findings

  • Total revenue for 2013 was $37.59 billion, a decrease of 2.6% from the prior year. Within that total, $23.57 billion came from advertising across all platforms, $10.87 billion from circulation and $3.15 billion from newly-developing and other sources.
  • Revenue from digital channels — advertising, circulation, digital marketing services, and other — rose 5.8% and accounted for 12% of total industry revenue.
  • The group of newly-developing and other revenue increased 5% overall.  The component of digital agency and marketing services, where newspaper media companies tap into interest among local businesses in the digital environment, increased 43%.
  • Digital advertising rose to $3.42 billion and accounted for 19% of advertising revenue; pure-play (digital only) advertising rose 14%. Mobile advertising revenue, though a small portion of overall total revenue (less than 1%), jumped 77%.
  • The $23.57 billion in advertising represents 63% of total revenue in 2013, declining 6.5% from $25.2 billion in 2012. Traditional print advertising was reduced by 8.6% to $17.3 billion, and makes up less than half of total revenue.

1-New-MediaAt the same time, according to this article by Night Digital Media Center.org: ” A new report on a study of the business models, revenue streams, and sustainability plans for 69 digital journalism start-ups in 10 nations reveals business lessons that could cross borders… In the U.K., we found a few journalistic startups who’ve experimented with business models and have found somewhat unexpected revenue streams — including money made selling something other than their journalism, most often technology.”   In Europe, some journalists have founded digital news agencies that supply content to news outlets. One Irish agency, Storyful, employs “more than 20 journalists who discover and verify newsworthy content from the social web and deliver the vetted material to clients, mostly in traditional media.”   Their conclusion: “Unlike [traditional news outlets], these online publications are not generalists but specialists. They do one or two things exceptionally well and leave the rest to others. It remains to be seen if there is still room for traditional media that tries to bundle ‘all the news that’s fit to print’ on a single website, newspaper, or newscast. Based on our research, the new publishers are not finding sustainability with [that model].” In short, this new model, that we helped to invent by giving away free ads, before there was a craigslist of any size, has evolved; and the market is moving toward a new type of niche/local news and advertising agency, all digital; an independent team of professional bloggers, with a common core of fee splits and independent agency relationships for global collaboration in this new market. We have been earning our livings this way for three and one half years at http://uplog.org.

1001 Ways to do Business E-book

In the new global digital marketplace known as THE INTERNET, currently:

From the youngest and most tech savvy amongst us, to the nearly blind grandmother with a grandchild on her knee, a home or auto is rarely purchased; a vacation is rarely planned without some online research beforehand.  In this brand new market, where people who were heretofore stuck living and working and commuting in the same  geographical location are now able to live and work anywhere (like me), it is those with a global vision who are reaping the big rewards available from these changes in how people live and work aided by technology.    The rewards from such “global vision” marketing can set an agent, broker, or other businessperson aside from their competition and even feed their largest competitors prospects and clients to them.  By reaching everyone in a geographical area or niche audience with on-topic and interesting content, news, events, holiday venues, music, art and attractions, any audience can be targeted efficiently, economically, and cumulatively:

With our advertising model, there is no per click, per lead, or per column inch. Each category in the phone book is an exclusive for our agency per city, so that non-competitive clients can reach out on each others’ area blogs:  Our Real Estate Masters cover areas:

32 of 1001 | 2014 – What I would do with an empty building to fill it up

According to this recent survey in the Oregonian

More than half of U.S. adults have had to cut back elsewhere to cover their rent or mortgage, according to a new survey.

The John D. And Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation found that 52 percent of adults had made trade-offs. Of those:
21 percent took a second job or worked more hours
19 percent stopped saving for retirement
16 percent accumulated credit card debt
14 percent cut back of health care
12 percent cut back on healthy food
6 percent moved to a neighborhood they considered less safe
3 percent moved to a neighborhood schools are not as good.
Renters were more likely to make such sacrifices than homeowners. Blacks and Hispanics were more likely to have made such sacrifices than whites. And homeowners and renters spending more than 30 percent of their income — a widely held standard of affordability — on housing were more likely to make those sacrifices than those who were spending a smaller share.

There is a solution to this problem, and I am about to tell you what it is!

A simple blueprint to list, fill up, rent out, and sell any number of empty buildings on purpose, at almost no cost:

  • ADD AMENITIES – In my sixty years, I have owned and rented multiple times.  Surprisingly,  the happiest time in my life and my families life was when we rented in a luxury apartment complex with all the amenities (The Boulders on the River in Eugene, Oregon)  With so many of us living and working at home, a few amenities can really enhance rentability, especially fitness and spa facilities, especially for techies like me.  In this building I live in, there was a Curves downstairs years ago, so adding to and upgrading those facilities is not hard.  Since it was mostly offices here, there are not enough bathrooms without the facilities, so rentability for a small apartment with community showers is greatly enhanced by nice facilities.
  • GET WITH MODERN LIFESTYLE CHANGES – With work and living styles changing, due to changes in marriage, divorce, and  a mobile, global society; do we really want to live in the suburbs by ourselves?  Those cracker box houses and chemical lawns were originally designed in the 1950′s when everyone looked like Ozzie and Harriet, and had a day job.   That was a very long time ago, and the model was never sustainable, environmentally sound, or attractive to me.  I am an extrovert, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I had to go all the way back to the land, raise and can my own food, and get very bored to realize that I can never be happy out in the bushes all by myself with only hillbillies to talk to!  Many of my generation went through this.  Now that I am single (and a great deal of us are, or will be again), I want to be around people.  If I marry again, probably no kids; a beautiful old building in a wonderful town like this one where the cost of living is low, climate is great, and I can have Clint Eastwood and many other celebs as neighbors; world class beaches, dunes, and golf courses  in Bandon and Charleston (close by), only 20 miles from these amazing clean, almost empty beaches; and a bunch of nice nightlife, pubs, restaurants, and recreation from fishing to elk hunting to skiing a short drive away; combined with a mix of young people and hip west coast baby boomers to hang out with in Coos Bay, this is much better for me, and also for many of you. The Oregon coast is beautiful and temperate - 805-827-2450Many years ago I saw a buyer of a dilapidated apartment complex in the Bay Area become independently wealthy when the place filled up instantly with Gay people, much to his surprize!
  • APPEAL TO MODERN THINKERS AND YOUNG PEOPLE – Just as my generation and myself had to explore “back to the land”, so the young people of today want to be exposed to and learn all these things, and their values are actually similar; after all, we were their parents!  Also, I love gardening, as do most people, it is really wonderful and I like to eat fresh clean organic produce.  Most of these downtown buildings, for instance, have flat roofs.  It costs almost nothing to create a roof garden of beds, or to allow the residents to do so.  But for me, a cool garden on the roof, fresh produce from it, and some kids to teach (I have the encyclopedia of organic gardening committed to memory) would be a deal-maker!  Would you believe there is not one single building in this town with a garden and lawn chairs on the roof like that for the residents?  Some building improvements and marketing ideas do not require money, just imagination, and perspective!  A knowledge of the marketplace is irreplaceable.  When was the last time that you evaluated what you want, what you like, what makes you happy, and where you can best find that with low overhead?!   Likewise, if you own a building, and it is empty, you are compelled to listen here!
  • APPEAL TO THE NEW RENTERS – They have bad credit, but it is not because they are a bad risk.  They have a good income, they pay their bills, but things got so bad during the recession that they short-sold their homes, ruining their credit.  Now they rent, and as rents in California and other places skyrocket, there becomes more and more need for affordable low cost housing; and no, it is not my opinion that Government should be involved there.  The building that I am in was remodeled one room at a time, bootstrapping the cost.  Many old guys like me have tools and expertise, and like to work with our hands; would gladly exchange some rent consideration for our time.  Now, all of a sudden, building maintenance, remodeling labor, and gardening on the roof could cost nothing but temporary rent on space that is empty right now!  If you are afraid if execution cal me I will refer you to somebody licenced who is not.   Unfortunately, most rentals are managed by professional property management companies – with no incentive at all to even think like this or listen to any of it, and who, in my opinion, are usually as creative as a rock!  Wouldn’t you rather have your local real estate broker, who has commissioned incentive to see you do well, manage that building for you , fix it up, then sell it??!! Now we are starting to get closer to what I am proposing, read on!
  • THINK ECONOMY OF SCALE AND CONVENIENCE – If I raise some of my own food, barely have to drive, and have very low rent, with recreation of every kind a stones through away, how much money to I really need?  Lets examine the existing model: High rent, high consumption, commuting hours per day, paying huge taxes before we even see our money, in debt to create appearances and buy cars and clothes – this is kind of like slavery without whips and chains, isn’t it?  Why do they want to take away our guns, HMMM??!!  But consider that, if my rent included food and utilities for between 500-1000 month, and I worked from home independently, as so many of us do, and was in a state with no state income tax (like Oregon), I can make 24,000 per year and pay 0 taxes legally in 30 minutes online, and never pay anything in, get all my money from clients money  immediately, without waiting…are you starting to see this…
  • HEALTHY LIVING AND LOCAL BARTER –  I never go to doctors.  I do not trust them, don’t laugh; they are educated by drug companies and chemical companies who support the universities.  But if I have a guy in my building who has a credential or expertise, from herbal medicine to fitness, many services could be offered by somebody who did not need $250,000 per year just to stress themselves into an early grave with the old lifestyle!  I would venture to guess that there some doctors right now who would like to be our resident doctor with an apartment, food, and a steady supply of direct pay cash clients.  My back healed because I could not afford the operations.  They do not do those fusions – almost never now!!  As  a patient, I need to trust my doctor.  (related: The 19 Jobs Where You’re Most Likely To Kill Yourself )  If he is my neighbor and friend, and does not have to worry about money, I trust him.  Likewise I want to trust my food to be safe, my contractor to be honest, my janitor to give a __… I could go on and on.  Those who know me know that I will never be too good or too old to mop a floor, do dishes, dump the garbage – and, frankly, some of the kids these days would benefit by being exposed to me, and I have two beautiful successful kids 33 and 34 to prove it!  Once upon a time, maintenance work was done by people who lived there!  With a farmers market every wednesday one block away, I could almost do without a grocery store, and actually, the evolution of this model could greatly reduce the size and number of super-behemoths in favor of local organic.  From headache remedies and simple medicine, to hand made a local furniture and clothing, to 7-devils Brew, there is really very little that we need an “establishment” for with this model.
  • SHRINK GOVERNMENT  BY REDUCING NEED AND REVENUES  - I put to you that there will be very little crime at all in such a community, too many people watching.  So would we need less police, with less traffic, less budget for tickets, right?  Lets take that train of thought farther, shall we:  how do we shrink our Government?  We don’t, because they are in charge.  The only thing that they are not in charge of is how we spend our time and our money.  So what if we all start on this plan and significantly cut the revenues?!  Yup, that is the only way to shrink government, and we have the power to do it.  If we don’t do it, we will be answering to more and more regulation soon.  If there is a grass roots solution, there is not a need for a government one.   They have been dealing with shortage much longer in England.  they do not have lawns!  They have victory gardens!!  We have a better climate!!!

I am not some fringe type.  I drank Republican cool-aid for may years.  I laughed at first too.  But I believe that sustainable living, in local communities (and empty buildings) is the answer to a great deal of our problems in 2014.  What do you think?  Please let us know!

31 of 1001 | The Value of 1 Believer | Human Capital Defined | The New Metric

Would you invest in your labor?

human capital

To really understand the value of one person who believes in something, you must understand the potential results from one human’s  actions.   To say that this “beauty’ is in the “eye of the beholder” would be a misstatement, because beauty and value are there inherently independent of anyone’s awareness of that value.

And yet, value unperceived is often undervalued, and never capitalized upon.

I believe that every person is a perfect somebody; in other words, everybody could be very good and happy doing something, if it fits them.

I believe that managing ourselves, our “human capital” is of foremost concern, because we manage everything else.

I believe that a job description should be designed to fully utilize human assets; the job should fit the human, and never the other way around.

I believe that when you do what you love for a living; the thing that your very soul cries out to do, the thing that you are made for, you excel.

I believe that every person, from the janitor to the spiritual leader, has value and something to offer to and something to teach the rest of us, even if it is only a uniquely humble attitude that inspires a loving and giving response.

I believe that we are indeed brothers and sisters, joined at the hip physically, emotionally, spiritually – one family, which must function and go forward as a family, a unit, to progress.

In short, in believe in human capital, and I believe that we do a woefully bad job of managing it.

Lets examine, for instance, the standard 9-5 “day job” which is fading away in the modern world:

7:am – Wake Up

9:AM – work after 30 minute commute

11:00 AM 15 minute coffee break stops all work

1:00 PM Lunch 30 minutes

1:30 Back to work

3:30 Another coffee break

5:30 Another commute

6:00 Family time, rest, do it again.

Does anybody really believe that this is living?

As someone who has done this, and worse, for over 30 years; and as a self employed businessman now, I can tell you that there is a better way.

Allow me, if you will , to propose an alternative that is more human friendly:

Sustainable Communities

A stable family with a lawn and two cars in the driveway is no longer the history of most of us.  I was a pioneer in being a “latch key’ child of a single mom – but that background is now the new norm.

In my 60 years alive on this earth, looking back, the happiness times most definitely were not when I was the richest, or poorest.   The very happiest time was when I worked a great deal doing something that was not too bad for a living, auto sales three blocks away, and my kids, stay at home mom, and myself lived in what was, at the time, the first luxury apartment community in Eugene, Oregon: the “Boulders on the River.”

My schedule was not 9-5, so that I had random times off, mostly when the 9-5ers were working.  The facilities at the apartments provided me and the wife kids with everything we needed, including neighbors as friends, to live a good life every minute that we were not working or in school – pools, games, workout facilities, social life, parties…

I did not hate my job, did not spend my life commuting, and I really enjoyed my healthy time off.

Somewhere there is a sane alternative to the way that we live, and we must find it.

Imagine this lifestyle:

  • You live in a sustainable community – it was an empty building in a small town, untill you and your community members moved in, remodeled, and made it into a home.
  • Your job is to tend to the aquaponic garden, or to cook breakfast, or to mow the yard today, or to fix the roof, or to operate your business as an independent professional, or to provide services of any kind to the other community members.
  • You have friends,  families, and children all around you, and you love them and participate in their lives and their upbringing.
  • Your community has workout facilities, a game room, a business center and conference rooms, a pool, sauna, whirlpool, party room..
  • Your spouse and you have your own apartment, and you are also part of the community.
  • You do not have to worry about shelter, food, or company, because your services to the rest of the community pay for these.

30 of 1001 | Social Media Builds World-View Perspective in 2014 | Online Dating Changes the World Forever | The Gracie Nakalyango Example

The Internet changes our view of ourselves and the rest of the world.

Example: Meet Gracie Nakalyango in Uganda

Gracie  Nakalyango in Uganda

Gracie is a living doll – 31 years old, single mother of three, looks half her age, is in business for herself to feed and clothe her children ( Abandoned by their father)  and to feed and clothe those of other abandoned and widowed mothers.

What a perspective builder for me!  Gracie is hard working, raises her own garden, makes her own clothes, builds her own buildings, owns her own land, and just simply wants to be somebodies wife and to care for her children.

Where would you find a woman like this in America?  I probably would not.   Many Americans with fussy, lazy, out of shape wives and girlfriends could not even imagine her humbleness, willingness to love and work, and give herself with total faith in God, a committed Christian, spirit filled beyond the understanding of anybody who has never been poor.  A woman who is still a woman, all the way, with all these wonderful qualities, and without a selfish “me first” American mindset; devoid of rampant wasteful consumer attitudes that are so prevalent here.  Gracie does dishes; makes, washes and recycles clothes by hand; raises a garden, and two pigs, and she has her own ministry and school, is self-sufficient out of necessity.  Where would an older American man find a woman of such character, so beautiful and unencumbered by vanity or addictions?

Gracie wants a man older than her, mature, not likely to run off, who will be a strong and good father to her twins and her other child; and they are beautiful beyond belief!  She would gladly relocate, with her kids, to do so.

If racist “world view” thoughts are going through your mind right now, consider that modern genetic research proves that Gracies’ genetics as a young black woman, who is inches taller than this 5′ 7 ” white American of European Jewish decent; her DNA differ less from mine, that that of two thoroughbred dogs from the same mother!  It is now proven that we are all, in fact, brothers and sisters.

With everyone in the world able to talk to everyone in the world, the best and the brightest from all generations and all countries are meeting online, and that “world view” is changing our culture, and our perspective, and our view of ourselves forever; our very genetics are changing.

If I had the money at the moment, I would back her ministry and  her replacement, and bring her here, to care for her and her children.  Her youth, and hard working humility would be hard or impossible to find here, for me, and for many of my divorced, widower and otherwise displaced peers.  We could not find such a young and loving beauty, and such an instant, undemanding,  appreciative family here.

But there are women like Gracie all over the world.  They would come here in a heartbeat if they had the opportunity; and in her culture, she is considered skinny (they like fat women); here, she is a beauty beyond belief;  Model material – you would never imagine that she could have three children and look this good.

According to this article in Forbes: 

A Third of Recently Married Couples Met Online and They’re More Satisfied and Less Likely To Split-Up

“A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that 35% of couples married between 2005 and 2012 met online and that these couples were slightly more likely to stay together and “associated with slightly higher marital satisfaction among those respondents who remained married,” according to the report.”

Who would have thought that  the trend would prove that such unions are less likely to result in the couple splitting up, and “slightly higher marital satisfaction” ?!

As a man who can retire early with enough to support such a family, I can tell you that no American woman would embrace such an opportunity the same way that Gracie would.  As a writer with a tested proven IQ that I wont share here, I can tell you that Gracie is extremely intelligent, nothing wrong with her genetics, healthy, beautiful, smart…only the best, quickest, brightest survive where she is from.

In my opinion, we will all be “Heinz 57″ hybrid mixes someday soon, healthier and less inbred than our ancestors – less bigoted, and more tolerant humans, and I, for one, look forward to that day.  These trends are accelerated by technology, and especially by the Internet and global free communications.

That this is good for mankind, for me, for Gracie and her kids, and, eventually, will change the entire world, is obvious to me.  What do you think?

Perhaps American women, who do not cook, do dishes, wash clothes; who are not the least bit humble or loving or giving; perhaps the selfish and the fleshy will become more like Gracie to compete, and everything will change.  I suspect that it will, and according to almost everyone else, it already has.

2014 – the Slow Death of Lead Generators – MIDDLEMEN

Death of Lead GeneratorsLike the water  filter man who went door-to-door in my youth, selling overpriced water-filters which “You could not buy in any store, ever..”,  lead generators have their place in creating a new market.

So it is with online lead generators like Realtor.com, Zillow, Home Store, Expedia, Hotels.com, Angie’s List, Legal Zoom…  these and thousands of others created the marketplace online by spending huge amounts in venture capital on pay-per-click advertising in recent years, so that they could resell pay-per-lead advertising, upgraded listings, websites, etc.   By bidding up the words on Google PPC and others beyond what the vendors could cash-flow, they have fed the media bank accounts, and created the largest media in the world: Youtube.

However, just as you can buy a pitcher, and two water filters which will last for a year at Walmart now for $13, this too will change, slowly.  Because these bloated, over-funded behemoths still account for most of the revenues, it will take time, but it will happen.

Run any broad real estate, hospitality, legal, medical or other lead generator search on Google, and you will see what I mean.  These sales funnels, who turn Joe consumer into Joe “the Internet shopper from hell” by selling the leads seven times so that seven hungry salespeople start calling all at the same time,  will be removed because nobody wants to find a page populated A-Z by salespeople.  What consumers want is information, not an obstructive sales funnel collecting their information for resale.

Furthermore, they are messing up the search results, and not paying Google for the organic advertising revenues; and that, my friends, will change any minute, with one stroke of Google’s algorithmic pen:

From  http://www.fiercecmo.com/special-reports/deep-research-dive-most-b2b-marketers-woefully-unsuccessful-lead-gen

“To improve the lead-gen process, the majority (64 percent) said they will emphasize lead generation more in the next 12 month. Most respondents (49 percent) cited new creative approaches, followed by greater agility (34 percent), better lead capture (34 percent), better content (30 percent) and better attribution (29 percent) as tactics to advance their lead-gen programs.

Lead Generator Slow Death

The report also said B2B marketers plan to tackle underwhelming lead-gen programs by changing areas of investment. In the next 12 months, respondents plan to boost spending in content marketing (70 percent), email marketing (51 percent) and social media (40 percent). At the same time, those B2B marketers expect to cut spending in trade show/event marketing (40 percent), pay-per-click ads (34 percent) and other digital ads (23 percent).”

The smart thing for Google to do (and they are smart) is to make it impossible to get to the first page organic (non-paid search results) without creating good content, not sales funnels or competing advertising platforms.  I predict that they will do this any minute.  The middlemen will slowly fade, and they are fading, in favor of cleaner content-marketing techniques, which are more consumer-friendly.  I am as sure of that, as I am that this article will rank for “the slow death of lead generators in 2014” by the time you read it!

How-to articles and books will always work well, as they always have.  I have found this methodology extremely effective in media and tech markets: because nobody will pay for what they do not understand, and, when they do understand, they would rather pay me the small amount that I charge than try to do it themselves.

Besides, what I will say about y clients, would be immodest if they said it!

In seven years and counting since I made it, this video is still perfectly relevant:

Does anybody really love commuting in traffic?  Do you really believe that eight hours per day working at a job you hate, and the rest dealing with stress and loneliness is a full life?  Do you think that our schools are modern and effective?

Empty Building

What shall we do with all those empty buildings, all those unemployed workers; all those disengaged, often addicted, homeless; all those over-educated spoiled elitists who do not understand the real world; all those morally bankrupt seekers and hedonists who are searching for something more meaningful than a high?

  • How do we replace the traditional family unit (which is all but gone)?
  • How do we stop the waste and environmental impact associated with these inefficiencies?
  • How do we fill up empty buildings?
  • How do we employ the unemployed?
  • How do we re-educate and save the lost?
  • How do we bring it all together?

THE NEW PLAYING FIELD:

  • No boundaries – everyone in the world talking to everyone for free – the opposite of Orwell’s “Brave New World
  • A perfect market for buying and selling – like Ebay – anything can be bought or sold for exactly what it is worth at that moment, no more, no less, and users are rated by reliability, also affecting price.
  • No need to work and live in the same place – a game changer – people can live and work and buy and sell from anywhere
  • Brand loyalty is dead – people want the best deal, full disclosure – ethical investment of resources
  • Old system is in trouble – in all times of trouble change becomes possible – when the status quo is failing, people embrace change.
  • Technology advancing – solar and other technologies have leaped forward, negating the necessity potentially even for power lines; certainly for dirty energy.
  • Accountability – again, technology is foiling the bad guys, crimes and injustices corrected recently, going back many years, aided by modern forensic science
  • Media Merging – the gatekeepers and casting couches are being circumvented by the Internet – worlds largest media have become Youtube and Google and Facebook – larger than all the others combined, and growing.

IMAGINATION – INNOVATION

  •  Imagine a world where people live and work in the same space, according to their qualifications, not their circumstances, or origin.
  • Imagine empty buildings filled with sustainable communities, with shared amenities and resources, hydroponic gardens for food, traveling in pooled transportation resources only when needed or for fun.
  • Imagine being offered a job which included housing, schooling, upward mobility, food, shelter, safety – where you could start as a server, or janitor, or gardener, or laborer, or at any level, and work your way up, becoming rounded as you go; leave any time you wish.
  • Imagine having the option to do what you are passionate about for a living thus, how much more productive would YOU be?

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

All the above is possible, RIGHT NOW, without governmental change, without spending money on anything other than Internet access for schooling. Everywhere, from the inner city to the darkest reaches of Africa, very soon, this change is possible; simply because people can live and work in the same space, aided by technology.

In this series of articles, we will begin to break down specific projects, and to solicit participants, community members, and modern workers.
