Thanks, Constantine. I confess that I had this weird moment seeing "Athens Own" because I am currently steeped in writing a book about the ancient amphitheatre in Athens. My son is a student at Oberlin. Ohio does seem to be a leader in this movement. I also just want to say that I think "own" is a great 'branding' for this movement. Really effective environmental messaging. Bravo.

Thanks for the welcome, Constantine! Athens' Own sounds really cool. How long has it been around? It'll be interesting to compare notes with folks in Ohio in terms of moving toward sustainability. Climates, population density, land use, etc...Different regions = different solutions, right? Can't wait to see what we all come up with. Cheers,

No, I am not. But, it is my favorite example of the direction that new single family development should be taking (or mixed types for that matter). You may have noticed that it was designed by Andres Duany http://www.katarxis3.com/Duany.htm He did Seaside a long time ago and is considered to be one of the "Big Guys" in Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND).

I'm afraid my membership at the moment is mostly "guilt by association"... and I doubt I'll be the poster boy for action. (I guess I called myself a slacker in order to not start off with any expectations I won't have time to live up to.) With family and work, my involvement is probably best described as philosophical, with a strong possibility of technical assistance should I become sufficiently and overwhelmingly motivated to adjust some of life's priorities. (I apologize if that doesn't make sense... I need to stop posting things online after 10pm.)

As far as your posting: I was a little confused by "Lots of systems of exchange and reciprocity put forth here." Were you referring to the website? The comment just seemed to be floating and others might also be confused by this part of the post. I'm not certain, but I thought I would just throw that out as feedback. Furthermore, the "bulletin board" comment seemed out of place, or perhaps it just needed a transition. I did, however, think that the questions at the end of the posting seemed appropriate. It leaves a lot of room for a variety of different people and skills to consider the internship.

Hi Constantine,

Glad to clarify computer details -- that was a bit of a confusing forum thread.

I am not a TT member at any state level, and I had no idea that such positions exist in the Transition Movement.

What are your questions about resource networking?
