About Me
Professional Information: I am the founder and director of the Learning Revolution Project, the host of the Future of Education interview series, and founder and chair or co-chair of a number of annual worldwide virtual events. I pioneered the use of live, virtual (and peer-to-peer) education conferences, popularized the idea of education "unconferences," built one of the first modern social networks (Classroom 2.0) for teachers in 2007, and developed the "conditions of learning" exercise for local change. I supported and encouraged the development of thousands of other education networks, particularly for professional development. For the last ten years, I've run a large annual ed-tech unconference, now called Hack Education (previously EduBloggerCon). I blog, speak, and consult on educational technology, and my virtual and physical events build community and connections in education, with 450,000 members and over 100,000 participant log-ins annually.

I am very confused about how to navigate. And I forgot to write down the dates so I probably missed everything.  So much protesting going on. I thought I had more time to come back to this. oh well.

I am trying to get a group of people to join with me to form an organization that would then buy land. I don't know anything about 501 c 3 or how to pick good land.

I learned that Earth Haven connected with the Nature Conservancy )or maybe they suggested that ) So I was going to ask them if we did conservation work would we be allowed to live on land that was set aside for animals and environment protection.  I never wrote the letter because I don't sound like an adult in writing.

The biggest problemis too many people are all talk and no action. And the ones who ARE ready. are willing to go the route alone. Get their one house and live on their one friends back yard. Not a solution for building a community.

In the past years there was a nature conservatory who wanted (I've forgotten now) I think wanted people to help with the upkeep I think that was in Chapel Hill NC  and now there is a woman willing to GIVE her 12.8 acre blueberry farm to anyone who writes a convincing essay, has a farming resume, is a couple, and pays $300 entry fee.  She says its too small to have a tiny house community. Don't know how tha'ts true, but she doesn't want a group to enter contest  

She mentioned Conservation Easement which i looked up and its about taxes.

I guess I'll just see what videos I can see.

Hi Steve, Glad I signed up for the summit. I see your suggestion to consider being a presenter. I am offering myself to you. Please tell me in what area you might need more input. A bit about me: I currently live full time in my DIY 6x10 Cottage Camper at Gracious RV & Tiny House Park on Lake Okeechobee in FL. I am the Tiny House Coordinator here. There is one other full size THOW here currently and I am in the process of building another one for myself = on a 7 ton 20ft trailer. I have 19 YouTube videos documenting my build of the 6x10 "Cottage Camper" and I am blogging my 20ft build on facebook.com/TakeMeHomeTinyHouse  I also built a 12x12 cabin in the mountains outside of Boone, NC and I recently attended the 2016 Florida Tiny House Festival where I was on a Q&A panel for "Living Tiny" and where Deek Diedricksen video interviewed me in my Cottage Camper for his YT channel. I have lots of ideas & opinions to go with them! LOL. Let me know how I can help.
