Hi, I just finished education automation, a collection of essays by Buckminster Fuller. One part that stood out to me is that Bucky seemed very committed to finding solutions, and he committed his life to finding better solutions, BUT ... he seems to have found them! He said it would only be 10 years to completion if we follow his ideas. Sounds like now the focus should be on getting people on board. The trick I think is to promote it more as being something good for them, rather than good for the world. It would be good for both, but it might take off faster this way.
What is up with kids making discoveries like this, is the news paper making a big fuss over something that happens a lot or is this actually significant?

Have you heard of ONE.org? I just heard about it, thought I'd pass it on.
ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives, helping to put kids in school and improving futures. Cofounded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African activists and policy makers.
I'm always finding interesting videos and articles, so I thought I'd share them.
