but she sounded intrigued . . ".

I don't know what to conclude from this: Either acadamia only talks to itself 
and is out of contact with the real world, or cohousing has not done enough 
to spread the gospel.  Maybe some of both.
But thank you, Ginny Moreland, for making us aware.  

I wonder is there perhaps an opportunity for some targeted promotion (by TCN 
perhaps?) of cohousing to academia -- say the Architecture and the Sociology 
Departments of every school in the country?
