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.

Open Intellect Project Gutenberg is the Internet's oldest producer of free electronic books (eBooks or etexts). Most of the Project Gutenberg eBooks are older literary works that are in the public domain in the United States. All may be freely downloaded and read, and redistributed for non-commercial use. The Radio Gutenberg Subproject makes audio eBooks available for some of the same great literature available in plain text.

Seeding Ground Wired magazine has a great article in their May 2004 issue on "gene science [that] is Earth-friendly and all-natural." So...genetic engineering our food may be not the best course of action afterall. Thank goodness! For example, savory, high-yield fruit (that) would ripen on the vine and remain firm in transit...Researchers are beginning to understand plants so precisely that they no longer need transgenics to achieve traits like drought resistance, durability, or increased nutritional value."

Resonant Guide UPDATED What is Enlightenment? magazine has a section and article in their new issue on Collective Intelligence, "discovering that wholes are far more than the sum of their parts. When individuals unite in a shared intention, something mysterious comes into being¬ówith capacities and intelligences that far transcend those of the individuals involved." It relays ideas of complexity to what Tom Atlee calls Co-Intelligence and much more, Flemming Funch, better know as Ming the Mechanic has an article about it too.

Creative Stimulus "Open and free access to literature and other writings has long been considered essential to education and to the maintenance of an open society. Public and philanthropic enterprises have supported it through the ages." The Live Music Archive has received more than 10,000+ concert recordings!

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 On April 23, students at Swarthmore College will launch a new international student organization, the International Movement for Free Culture, dedicated to what it calls a "bottom-up, participatory structure to society and culture." The new group will leverage the power of students at colleges and universities around to the world and promises to be a leading voice for copyright reform, online rights, free and open-source software, and threats to the free flow of information.

Community Thrivability UPDATED: NEW WEBSITE
---------------------------------
A friend from Norway turned us on to Marcin Jakubowski, PhD. He is the founder of The Open Source Ecology Project, a nonprofit research and education institution creating open access to sustainable, healthy, and affordable ways of living. (1) open access to practical knowledge, (2) the collaborative development of working economic models via the nonprofit sector, and (3) education, demonstration, and training aimed at integrated, ecological, regenerative social enterprise. The process by which they attain the above is called Open Source Development, a collaborative, open process which builds on past knowledge and leverages public collaboration.

Open Intellect This just in... from Creative Commons chairman Lawrence Lessig. He released his new book, Free Culture today, both online, a licensed downloadable version and in stores. The book covers the current state of copyright law and what it means to our culture and society. Give it a look, and if you like what you see, ordering online will contribute a small percentage to Creative Commons.
UPDATE: "Free Culture" popup audiobook

Emerging Systems Physicist and computer scientist Stephen Wolfram has made his seminal work, A New Kind of Science, available for free online. What is the Principle of Computational Equivalence? Almost all processes that are not obviously simple can be viewed as computations of equivalent sophistication. More specifically, the principle of computational equivalence says that systems found in the natural world can perform computations up to a maximal ("universal") level of computational power, and that most systems do in fact attain this maximal level of computational power.
