"This is the future. Everything is going to look and feel like this within five years," says creator Roel Vertegaal, the director of Queen's University Human Media Lab. "This computer looks, feels and operates like a small sheet of interactive paper. You interact with it by bending it into a cell phone, flipping the corner to turn pages, or writing on it with a pen."

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.
am in the simplest sense a " clear creative mind PLUS" for social responsibility and sustainability. I specialize in Relationships and delivering creativity in the context of multilateral solutions.
Most things boil down to relationships - between people, ideas, products, environments, etc. Within the relationship arena my niche focuses on Relationships in the BIG Picture. Contrary to popular thinking the Big Picture does matter.
Currently: I work with a small team to develop projects with a multidimensional attached event series that engages growing niche markets or expands dissemination of new research findings and information.
Are you interested in learning about what A/r/tographic or Art Based approaches to innovation and solutions can mean for your organization or business?
Are you looking for alternatives to the "hit or miss" of mass marketing or the shortcomings of most industry research?
The Cultural Fusion approach delivers more value over the duration of your relationship with the marketplace because it delivers unparalleled meaning at the individual level.
You benefit from my ability to see beyond borders to give leaders, managers and business owners comparative advantages for earned value. Finally, see connections that are often not obvious but vital to getting to the heart of a matter on time and within budget.
I am especially interested in collaborations to explore Quality Attention in project design/mgmt and capacity development.
I welcome connections from others engaged or interested in Art Based research. A/r/tography has been defined as the systematic use of the artistic process, the actual making of artistic expressions in all of the different forms of the arts, as a primary way of understanding and examining information, environments and experience.

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.
