Masa Off Grid

10:40 AM - 21 November 2012

If there was a model for Brave New Earth and what I envision doing with videoblogging this is a great example of backpack broadcasting. -- Going Off The Grid with Masa.  A Journalist from Vancouver Canada integrates himself for one year into an existing off-grid community in Haida Gwaii, a small island off the coast of British Columbia. My proposal is not only to go off grid but to do many more DIY type projects as well as Permaculture and new innovations in Farming and Farm Hacking.  Watch the whole Masa Off Grid Video Series here.

Living The Good Life ; Walking in the footsteps of Scott & Helen Nearing

This was an experimental backpack broadcasting which was shot on vacation with just a point and shoot camera - sony cybershot DSC RX100

Greg Joly and Mary Diaz purchased a piece of land in Jamaica Vermont and hand built a homestead. Following in the footsteps of Scott and Helen Nearing who in 1932 left New York City to establish a homestead in Jamaica Vermont. There experiment in living the simple life, building there own home, growing there own food became famous with the publication of "Living The Good Life - how to Live Sanely and Simply in a Troubled World". They continued there experiment in Vermont for over 20 years before taking there learned skills in homesteading to build another homestead in Harborside Maine.

Lexicon Of Sustainablity

4:28 AM - 17 October 2012

Words are the building blocks for new ideas. The word Sustainability is used so freely these days that its hard to tell what the word really means. "Oh yeah sustainability, that must be something good" One person who is helping to change the way we look at sustainability is Douglas Gayeton. His Lexicon Of Sustainability project is not only picture perfect but is using a new visual interface to help clarify what it is via pictures and words. Lexicon Of Sustainability Project Website
