Creative Stimulus Part I. What is It was founded by the Swarthmore Coalition for the Digital Commons and Downhill Battle, with the help of organizations such as Click the Vote. So.. "What is Free Culture?" Perhaps one could begin by asking, what does a free culture look like? If you like their answers to that question, or at least find them intriguing, then maybe you'll be interested in reading their attempts at nailing down some concrete parts of a definition of free culture. Like everything else on their site, it is a work in progress... feel free to contribute! click Read more...

The Cost of Corn Ethanol
Starving the People To Feed the Cars

This seems to be one of the only forms that doesn't take food off people's plates.

Wired reports, "Biodiesel fueling stations are sprouting like weeds across America, where production of the alternative fuel rose 66 percent in 2003." The Physics Department at the University of New Hampshire has an article on "Widescale biodiesel production from algae." "With alternate fuel becoming a fairly hot trend in recent months, some academics may have applied their theoretical know-how to give us a practical solution. They offer up the idea that certain types of algae are well-suited to biodiesel production as they are nearly 50 percent oil."

Resonant Guide Update: Wikipedia Entry : POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY

Positive psychology emphasizes what is right with people rather than what is wrong with them. The focus is on positive subjective experiences, cognitive constructs about the future, and the capacity for courage, aesthetic sensibility, creativity, perseverance, altruism, tolerance, and wisdom at the individual and group levels. "Every year, prestigious medical journals are filled with studies, showing a connection between your health and your outlook on life. Apparently, people with positive outlooks recover from surgery faster, have less heart disease, suffer less pain when they are ill, catch colds less frequently, and live as much as 10 years longer..."

Community Thrivability Portland, Oregon. The Village Building Convergence is a Cyclical Event for the Restoration of Communication and Sharing, Working Together to Rebuild our Common Culture, and to Transform the City into a Network of Ecological Village Places. For ten days, May 21-30th, thousands of neighbors, volunteers and visitors will work together to continue building our physical and social village infrastructure. Whether it is getting hands and feet muddy in building a cob kiosk or sitting side-by-side engaging in thoughtful nightly presentations, the Convergence is a successful statement of common visions for a lively urban community.

Community Thrivability This article is a mix a few info portals and weblogs but they all relate. The first is from Technology Research News, "Silicon solar cells capture only some of the spectrum of sunlight, limiting their efficiency. A mix of several metals and oxygen could lead to solar cells that capture much more sunlight. The key is misaligning the material's crystal structure by infusing it with oxygen." Editor-in-Chief Paul Hughes of the FutureHi weblog carried this story from Berkeley National Laboratory that "An unexpected discovery could yield a full spectrum solar cell."

Creative Stimulus Here's a great article written in the NY Times The Tyranny of Copyright, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation's page on free culture.
1. Creativity and innovation always builds on the past.
2. The past always tries to control the creativity that builds on it.
3. Free societies enable the future by limiting the past.
4. Ours is less and less a free society. --Lawrence Lessig, 2002.
