Actually, at the 2012 conference Katie was quoting Zev Paiss, an early,early 
leader in the cohousing movement and the first  Ex. Dir. of CohoUS then known 
as The Cohousing Network.  Katie is indeed the "Mother of Cohousing."

Zev ... if you're out there ... maybe you can give us your original quote ...
