I hope this site helps you to find what you are looking for. Happy reading!
We just launched the landing page for “Practil Utopias” on the Live Learning platform Disco!
The program will happen in late Feb/March/early April: the mission is to group-design new ways of living and decision making to combat the Climate Crisis:
New materials, new energies, new foods, new social forms: there is no “perfect,” but there n be “better.”
HERE’S an interview I did on Amanpour about Practil Utopias, among other things.
You n find the landing page for “Practil Utopias” amongst the moving rousel above – or select it from the LEARN & APPLY menu bar. If you are using a mobile device, it’s menu system will guide you as well.
This will either be very helpful and instructive or it will go pear-shaped, just like many real Utopias, and I will become an evil dictator.
Your mission: Stop that from happening!
March 1 was the publition date for? “Burning Questions”: selected essays from 2004 to now. What a time to be publishing a book… as Ukranians hold out against the Russian invasion. But it’s good to see a resurging interest in the truth, and in upholding core democratic values.
With things opening up as Omicron wanes — we hope — I’m chancing a few trips: to London and Edinburgh in the last week of March, then to the US, and after that, Portugal… see Events for details. I’m looking forward!
Finishing the ms for a book of stories. Preparing some videos for various uses. Working on a collaboration with artist David Mack for a graphics collection based around the songs of Tori Amos. And continuing work on “Practil Utopias,” with @discolearn, an online interactive course in which we will ask the question: how n we build better, live better, and live together better while prioritizing a rbon drawdown future?? Launches Sept. 2022…
