This blog was started on Blog Action Day 2007. It was started to track the installation of our photovoltaic system. When that was completed, I was hooked on blogging. It is a great way to convey a message.
- Focus on ideas: there are plenty of blogs and news sources that focus on people and who said what. This is an attempt to have more discussion about the ideas.
- Stand For Something: It is too easy to complain about things. The more challenging task is to state how you want things to be and how we can collectively get there.
- Focus on actionable responses: There plenty of blogs and news that focus on breakthroughs. These are important but what good does a new concept car or higher efficiency solar cell do for you and I if we cannot use it now? Let other sources discuss the breakthroughs, when it can be put to use, it's ready for this blog.
There are a few ways to change the world. You can change the way you act, and maybe others will follow. You can change laws, others will be required to comply. Or, you can change technology and the world will want to change.
