Seattle Food Forest!

Full seven acre proposal to be built over the next few years.

Full seven acre proposal to be built over the next few years.

My awesome friend Evan sent me this lovely link!

A seven-acre plot of land in the city’s Beacon Hill neighborhood will be planted with hundreds of different kinds of edibles: walnut and chestnut trees; blueberry and raspberry bushes; fruit trees, including apples and pears; exotics like pineapple, yuzu citrus, guava, persimmons, honeyberries, and lingonberries; herbs; and more. All will be available for public plucking to anyone who wanders into the city’s first food forest.

Today, 52 years ago, the space race began with the launch of Sputnik 1. The human race’s very first artificial satellite, and an enduring icon of our ingenuity.

Go Humans!

Here’s the full article.

What does this mean for all of the lovely little clean-tech and renewable start up in the US, or the bigger, more established sustainability-minded companies?

We are in the process of getting some answers from our friends around town.

3 Technologies To Watch

Good Evening SuperForest!

There are three technologies in the world today that you must keep an eye on. Not because they are dangerous, but because the three, used in tandem, will completely up-end the current life equation here on Earth. Not to oversell it, or anything…

The first machine is one we’ve mentioned recently, Dean Kamen’s water purifying device:

The second device is also a Dean Kamen project, a machine that turns heat energy into electricity, enough to power the first machine:

The third (and by far the cutest,) technology is the RepRap self-replicating rapid prototyper:

The RepRap project is extraordinary. An open-source (free) design, cheap to produce and capable of replicating itself like a Mogwai. Download the plans for one, make ten thousand.

(Check out an earlier SF post about what the RepRap will allow us to do…)

These three technologies will allow pockets of humans to live free of all tethers. When everyone has access to free clean water and power, there will be no grids. When everyone has access to a mini-manufacturer, there will be no need to manufacture off site and ship goods.

Freedom and justice for all.

Obviously this will shake things up a bit. That’s why as always, we’re going to have to put our heads together, use our manners, and do what we humans do best: cause and solve problems.

As long as we work together, there’s no technology that can divide us.

Here’s Dean Kamen’s site.
And the RepRap Project site.

U.S. Flight Patterns Visualized


Two clever little chickens at UCLA have created these beautiful animations which visualize the air traffic over the U. S. over a 24 hour period. It looks like a ferocious game of “Missile Command!”
