Welcome to Ski Lake Tahoe. Not a lake, the lake with 7 world-class ski resorts. Not majestic mountains, mountains with jaw-dropping cliffs, serene glades and spectacular views of the lake. Not snow, 400 inches of snow a year that pile up into epic powder, tight corduroy groomers, raucous terrain parks and endless moguls.

Magic Dragon Multimedia was founded in 1995 as a subsidiary of Emerald City Publishing, a diverse high-tech publishing parent company dating to 1979 in Seattle and affiliated with the science/engineering consulting company Computer Futures, Inc..
Three of the officers of Magic Dragon Multimedia were on the Board of Directors of a major Hollywood CD-ROM publisher in 1994 and 1995, but saw that the World Wide Web would be a more important multimedia channel than CD-ROMs -- so Magic Dragon Multimedia began 1 January 1995 under the leadership of Jonathan Vos Post and Dr.Christine Carmichael.
They went on-line at the end of February 1996 with a domain that grew to include over 600 web pages, for small businesses, non-profit organizations, and extensive content in certain selected areas popular with netizens. The internet is really a way of connecting people -- so Magic Dragon Multimedia has information about, and/or links to, over 11,000 people worldwide who have something important or entertaining to tell you.

Yes, we can go over these things. As soon as we get some other foundational stuff in place, we can build out more explanation materials. In the meantime, the idea was that these buttons are somewhat Self explanatory, if you click them. If they were not there, those features would be harder to reach. BTW, we're working with a group in the UK now.

Fellowship for Intentional Community
Promoting Community Living and Cooperative Lifestyles Across North America
The Fellowship for Intentional Community nurtures connections and cooperation among communitarians and their friends. We provide publications, referrals, support services, and sharing opportunities for a wide range of intentional communities, cohousing groups, ecovillages, community networks, support organizations, and people seeking a home in community.
Intentional Communities have for many centuries been places where idealists have come together to create a better world. Although there are thousands of intentional communities in existence today, and many others in the formative stages, most people are unaware of them or the roots from which they spring. The Fellowship is increasing public awareness of existing and newly forming communities. We offer information and referrals for those who are actively seeking, or simply curious about, alternate lifestyles for themselves and their families.
Communities come in all shapes and sizes, and share many similar challenges -- such as defining membership, succeeding financially, distributing resources, making decisions, raising children, dividing work equitably, and choosing a standard of living. Many wrestle with questions about right livelihood, spiritual expression, land use, and the role of service in our lives. At the same time, there is limited awareness of what others are doing to meet these challenges -- and much to gain through sharing information and experiences with others exploring similar paths. The Fellowship documents the visions and experiences of life in community, and actively promotes dialogue and cooperation among communities.
Intentional communities are often aware of themselves as different from mainstream culture, and many choose to highlight these differences. Yet, virtually all communities share a common root value of cooperation. The Fellowship facilitates the extension of cooperation beyond membership boundaries and common values, understanding that differences can be a cause for celebration, and an occasion for enrichment and growth. The Fellowship is helping draw the circles of cooperation ever larger, and assisting with the personal stretching that this requires In that spirit, FIC membership is open to everyone.
mandala magnetFor centuries, mandalas have graced the world as a spiritual art form--a type of language without words--like art. Meaning "circle" in Sanskrit, mandalas are designed in sand, clay or on rocks and scrolls as requests for well-being and support. Mandalas have intricate meanings to many ancient spiritual cultures of the Asian East.
MandalaMagnets merge original, hand-drawn line-art from veteran designer and artist, Wil Stegenga, with the power of magnets and color to energize the intention of the art, to empower the viewer, and add dimension for the greatest benefits.

Radio Advertisement for Lecture of Philip Emeagwali in Trinidad
Radio advertisement for the June 8, 2008 lecture of Philip Emeagwali at The University of the West Indies, Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
Behind the Internet Computer genius thrills at Emancipation lecture series June 11th 2008 (TrinidadExpress.com)
Dr Philip Emeagwali takes us from the blackboard to the drawing board to the motherboard and then to what he considers as the mother of all motherboards-the super computer. A mind which engineered the linking of 65336 electronic processors, to be able to compute 3.1 billions calculations per second using physics, mathematics and computing, and won the Gordon Bell Prize in 1989, (considered the Nobel Prize of computing), was last in class at the age of five and has been a child soldier in Nigeria during a vicious war. Called by President Bill Clinton, "one of the great minds of the Information Age.", Dr Emeagwali has certainly overcome some grand challenges to achieve significant milestones in his lifetime.
Dr Emeagwali was the guest of the Emancipation Support Committee (ESC) for the launch of the Kwame Ture Memorial Lecture Series 2008 last Sunday at the University of the West Indies. "It is truly a privilege to have someone of Dr Emeagwali's stature in our midst," said Tracy Wilson, Chairman of the Education Committee, ESC. "We continue to seek out speakers and thinkers who can share a different paradigm of thought. Persons, who by their experiences can give our younger generation some hope for their future. Dr Emeagwali is undoubtedly an inspirational speaker, and his presentation marked the beginning of what the Emancipation Support Committee expects to be its most stimulating and enlightening lecture series yet."
Noted as the "Bill Gates of Africa", Emeagwali spoke on this year's theme 'Crossing New Frontiers to Conquer New Challenges,' having risen from humble beginnings in Akure, Nigeria, to become the individual TIME magazine recognised as the 'unsung hero of the Internet,' for his contributions to Super Computing. Dr Emeagwali grew up in Nigeria during a time of war and turbulence that forced him to drop out of school, yet he was still able to complete his education abroad, receiving a general education certificate from the University of London and later degrees from George Washington University and the University of Maryland. He also studied in the doctoral fellowship programme at the University of Michigan.
At the launch of the Kwame Ture Memorial Lecture Series, at the JFK Lecture Theatre, a capacity 500-strong audience listened attentively as Dr Emeagwali painted a picture of the internet from the moon, "Just picture the Internet as an electronic web over the earth, the 8th continent, with millions of twinkling points, a feast for the eyes and the mind."
Asked what was the transforming moment in his life-Dr Emeagwali stated, "When I was 5 years old, my father recognised that I was slow in Math, he worked with me, pushing me until eventually I could do 100 questions in an hour. His efforts pushed me beyond my comfort zone. Parents must set higher standards for their children and push them beyond their comfort zone. We must remember that every genius is an ordinary person who did extraordinary things." His prowess in mathematics earned him the nickname "Calculus" at University.
Asked about his experiences as a black man in the white-dominated area of computing and mathematics-Dr Emeagwali recounted the fact that in the early days he often had to deny his blackness, and to be accommodating to everyone, just to fit in. However, because of his blackness-he was forced to work alone, and it is this work that has brought him international success and recognition. He also tells the story of an artist preparing a sketch of him for a publication using his features, but portraying him as a white man. "We must never allow others to project their image of us, on us. We must maintain our own identity."
"Emancipation means for me, not just a freeing of the body-but also of the mind, we must be at the edge of knowledge in all our fields. We can not be fully emancipated if we lack intellectual capital. Five thousand years ago Africa was the intellectual capital of the World, with the pyramids, science and Math, we must regain that position by being more conscious, by investing more in education and by understanding our past."
"In the past men fought with swords and bayonets, today you must be equally armed, not with weapons but with knowledge and new techniques to achieve our own emancipation."
The Kwame Ture Lecture Series continues with another free lecture by lecturer, economist, columnist; Dennis Pantin on the topic Capitalism and the destruction of the Environment; New Challenges to Human Survival and Development at the National Museum Annex, Fredrick Street, Port of Spain from 7 p.m. tomorrow. For further information call the Emancipation Secretariat at 628-5008.
I was struck by the simplicity of such an eloquent and forceful idea. I started imagining what such power meant for Africa. The potential for progress and poverty alleviation in Africa relies on capital generated from the power within our minds, not from our ability to pick minerals from the ground or seek debt relief and foreign assistance.
YAY for bloopers and behind the scenes clips! See Victor Kim again and a cameo by Ryan Conferido both from Quest Dance Crew! I definitely had a hard time keeping a straight face through this shoot hahhaa
Why did you start doing these videos?
I’m always looking for a creative outlet and had thought of one day doing a one woman show… As I discovered that people could have their own “channel” on YouTube - I thought “Well, here is a way to have my own show whenever I have the time for it, and the world is the audience!”
