• Hexayurt Press Coverage

    I’ve been surprised and delighted to discover that Shane Deichman and Thomas Barnett both covered the new Hexayurt web site in their respective blogs today.

    Shane and I did an interview that you can see at the 13:00 minute mark of this short film that Lindsey Darby and I made at Strong Angel 3,a disaster response demonstration, in San Diego last year. It’s a good little video – really reveals a lot about how the disaster relief world is changing.

    Shane hasn’t made it to Burning Man, though. Perhaps Jeff Jonas needs to lead the way here…

    UPDATE: The Seitch also has coverage. This is really the fun bit.

    Amory Lovins (one of the indirect fathers of the Hexayurt Project) talks about finding “transideological consensus.” When you get the engineering right, suddenly all sides of the political spectrum are on the same side of the issue.

    I think this is true of not just politics, but culture. When the .mil types and the greens see the world the same way, odds are something is inherently right.

    flattr this!
