Hi there,
Sorry I'm just now finding your note here!!! I founded EDS in 2003 as a vehicle to engage my permie work for the community on a more "professional" level. It's registered as a sole proprietorship. Nothing fancy, and no official employees. I collaborate more often than not, with other designers and visionaries and we just advertise our work under the banner of EDS. I found myself doing about 95% education and 5% design consulting. Three years ago, I ended up going back to school for a masters in landscape architecture and the business has slowed significantly since then as my time and energy went to grad school. We mainly focused our work on a sort of giving approach, where we organized "free" events for the community (sponsored by local businesses and organizations) as a strategy to build capacity for resilience...films, presentations, workshops, tours, etc. And then, there is an arm of the organization where I offer design consultation for small and large land holdings. Depending on what your mission and goals are for your organization there in Chicago, you may want to choose a different business structure, from a non-profit, Limited Liability Corporation, Corporation, etc., etc.
I am in the process of establishing a new business model for sustainability education and consultation as more of a cooperative approach and keep the sole proprietorship EDS for other potentially smaller endeavors that may not totally fit into the collaborative ethos outlined by it's members.
What is it exactly that you are hoping to accomplish there in Chicago? Where are you guys at with it at the nealy a year later..ha, sorry! Better late than never, right?!

Oh, never mind. I see it showed up. The one I sent last time flared up and exploded. Maybe I'll try again.

Hi Milton,
We are excited about transition and Tai Chi as well. Tai Chi is transformational process indeed. They go well together.
Happy Chi,

Hi Milton,
Your offer to post Peak Moment TVs on your list is great -- you're right, I just don't have time to post all of the individual videos, though I might try posting some in the Peak Moment TV group and see what that entails.
Thanks, Janaia

Thanks Milton,

Yes I can see that happening but my time is very valuable as well as everyone elses and my intention (as with my film screenings) is to screen films that are NOT freely available, that have just come out, like The Garden or Fuel or Flow or Pray the Devil Back to Hell or a number of other films that may or may not be Transition-related, eventhough in the very broad picture, MOST of the films I screen are Transition-related. So the main question is to HOW to SHOW the newer films that have clarity (on ones computer) at the same time for people to see and then have a skype discussion for those who wish to hang out afterwards. We did a survey for people who might prefer this and an overwhelmingly number said yes, since they dont want to drive or leave their house, they are old or have children... so Im trying to accommodate people who cant or wont come to the public appearances.
yes I was interviewed twice by Janaia. great graphic!
and Im trying to make money so I can keep hopedance alive....

Milton, wow, thanks for joining the media group. Perhaps you are the one to speak to. I show films in public spaces, documentaries with the typical equipment, inside, outdoors, in churches, basements, bars, etc. but when the attendance goes down I think of coming up with a way to show films online (assuming I get the permission from the filmmaker) at a specified time AND to have a discussion afterwards. Anything out there already?... some people say yes and cant explain it to me while others say the tech is not there yet.
any clues?
