By day I'm a stay at home dad trying to keep up with a growing boy who's almost three. In my free time I work on school things and expanding my knowledge. I was lucky enough to find Doug's program, Internet: Knowledge & Community, he co-tought with Stephen Beck last winter, my first quarter at Evergreen. Civic intelligence meshes very well with many of the things I was interested in before I started going back to school.
I'm very excited about manifesting the concepts of civic intelligence, and have been working with Doug on the | Public Sphere Project site. Spring quarter last year I did an ILC to examine the town I live in and start to look at it as a place ripe for future projects. This quarter I'm looking forward to more opportunities to envision a world made better by people taking hold of their collective intelligence, and to build more tools for making those ideas into reality.
