infiltrating your local HamWatch, #Occupy

Transitioners might do well to get their amateur radio licenses and get involved with these already-existing groups of people who feel a sense of community.

Nighthawk Traders

There's perhaps no question I'm asked more often than "What about Local Currencies?" So I'm starting a study group on alternative forms of community trading. Register your interest! Soon we will begin building a prototype.See More

Welcome from another Sonoma County resident. I think I've 'seen' you before -- perhaps on an Aqus listing on Facebook? Anyway, cheers!

Welcome John,

Great to see your interest in Transition! Welcome to TRANSITION IN ACTION.

http://transitioninaction.com/group/linktransitionnewmexicousa is your link to our new Transition page for your neighbors in New Mexico. Feel free to join in the activities. Use the COMMENT WALL to say Hello to the others. Reinforce the good things they are doing. Mention something you're interested in. Ask a question. Start a discussion. Let me know if you would like to be an Admin on this page to help build and maintain your group's Resume. Have fun!

On the local scene, does Columbus (or some broader geographic area) have a Transition-supporting website, or blog, or listserv, or Facebook, or Meetup? If so, it would be spot on for all our members if you would consider including a link to Columbus in our registry of organizations, localities, companies, products, services, Twitterers, Facebooks, Meetups, etc. supporting Transition and Sustainability. Here's the page to create the link -- http://transitioninaction.com/groups/group/new. I'll be glad to help launch and build your link. What do you think...? Do you want to do it?

You can see all our 315+ groups at http://transitioninaction.com/groups. Use Search on this page to find a specific group. Join as many as you like. Let me know when you have questions about details.

One more thing. It would be super to see your photo -- Choose File on http://transitioninaction.com/profiles/settings/editProfileInfo -- Let me know if you need assistance. I'll be delighted to do some photoshopping if needed.
