Ok, This seems to be a relatively low traffic list, where introductions are not inappropriate. My name is Trey Wedge and I live in a cooperative household in Menlo Park. I am interested in what's going on in the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Cruz,non-traditional housing and owner-builder scene. I have worked with Urban Ecology in Berkeley and was around for the starting of Cerro Gordo near Cottage Grove, Oregon. I missed the Berkeley Eco-City conference in 1990(?), by a week. I am mostly interested in social engineering and cultural change that starts at home and grows into society, because "its the right way to go", rather than some other kind of social coercion. My description is "growing model" where there isn't a limit to how big a good model can grow. My model for start-up is "puzzle maze." Once you solve the puzzle, the solution to the maze becomes obvious. My feeling is that one of the existential tragedies of American life is that 80% of the population has to spend most of their life buying a place to live. My goal is to spend about as much time and energy "buying" a place to live as they spend on buying a car. So, on to solving the puzzle, let's try to help each other. trey
