Phillip — I’m not so much interested in “Protecting” the term cohousing as I am in engaging people in LEARNING about cohousing. Even a response in a comment thread spreads the word. I challenge everyone on this list to engage just one time in the next 12 months writing a response to one thing about cohousing, housing, community, affordability, etc. Doesn’t have to be a dissertation … just a short response in a comment section on-line is great! There are thousands of digital newsletters, reports, etc. that we belong to. Alan’s Ohashi has even gone beyond a comment response to engaging someone directly to find out about the use of the term “entrepreneurial co housing.” There are at least 600+ of us on this list. Wonder what the collective effort of us to make one engagement in 12 months would produce? Just a musing on my part before noon on Thursday, June 21 the Summer Solstice … :-) Best -- Ann Zabaldo Takoma Village Cohousing Washington, DC Principal, Cohousing Collaborative, LLC Falls Church, VA 202.546.4654 As long as you have two or fewer … your ducks are always in a row.
