Rob thoughts regarding the problems with national advertising, that there is no national network, were helpful in explaining why very few (3) groups voiced even a small interest in my proposal for a national ad. Very few groups have the interest or the energy in promoting cohousing as a national movement. The fact is we're all just too tired OR (for you lucky ones) just want to live in peace. What has beeen surprising to me is that the regional groups don't see the possibilities in advertising to a group like the futurists. Somehow I don't think alot of them live(futurists) in south Florida. We don't get many progressive, innovative creative types settling here to start new cyber-companies. Those people settle in the Northwest, the Rockies, or California( basically, everywhere but here). That's why I thought the established umbrella groups would jump at this. Rob writes>>It may very well be that it will take having 100 or more built and occupied projects before there is enough energy to sustain a national organization that could do national level promotion, write grants, etc. I believe he is right. I also believe that until groups from around the country perceive common interests there will be no national movement. Our group sees this commonality now. For Synergy the purpose of this adventure to the Futurist's conference is to plant a seed in their minds of a possibility of how the future could look. We will have copies of the latest No. American Coho list to pass out so get ready for the futurist deluge. We will probably have newsclippings, books, maybe Zev's video (if electricity doesn't cost too much). We have photos of the 5 built communities we've visit.We'd take more if someone wanted to send them. If anyone has some great ideas for ways to showcase cohousing please pass it on directly to me. Also, if anyone gets calls or inquiries from this endeavor, please let us know too. Corey Yugler Synergy Coho
