James Hoggan on the Polluted Public Square

Jim Hoggan is on a mission to determine why, in spite of compelling and unequivocal scientific evidence, we are doing so little to address environmental problems like climate change, collapsing ecosystems, and the rapidly declining health of our oceans? Why do we seem unable or unwilling to think things through…

Hi Paul,

I'm just wondering if there is an alternative way of registering and paying for the fee for the Unleashing as I do not use credit cards and therefore do not use Paypal, etc.

Any help in the matter would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Got your e-mail. Thank you and we'll see you then.  I'll make sure to bring the money for lunch. Thanks again

Hi Paul,

As you get credit for creating the site (I don't know if that is creating or installing and customizing the software), I would like to mention a slight technical non-optimality:  My blog was precessed by your system in a small, literal-minded way to extract keywords, which destroys some of the meaning.  Splitting "small group" into "small" and "group" bypasses the "small group" literature that the key phrase would connect with.

Best regards, while I keep watching the site,

Roger Belling

Hi Paul,

Yes, it's on our to do list - may take a while.  Still haven't heard about our funding fr. Wpg Fdn and possibility of a Coordinator.

Thanks for thinking of us.

Perfect thanks!

Will have to share photos from this morning's fruit tree planting with South Osborne.  Tons of fun, people and apple trees.

Hi Paul,

Sign me up - I'm up for helping with whatever I can!  Let me know what you need, when you need it by, and I'll give it my best shot.

I'll give it the old college try, certainly.  If you like their format, it should be pretty straight forward to come up with something similar since they've used blogger.  I would definitely need help with the content, thanks for the offer.  I'll start work on it ASAP and send you a preview soon to see what you think.

Hi Paul,

Glad you like it! 

With regards to the website, I like the look of it currently - sort of a simple, sophisticated look.  I've never used ning, but if you'd like me to have a look I'm game.  If it's like blogger then it shouldn't take me too long to learn.

I like the neighbourhood profile idea - kind of like the "Better know a district" bit on The Colbert Report.  I've contacted Rod Kueneman through the site, hopefully he logs in reasonably regularly.  I've also reached out to the leads of the various active groups for a brief overview and update of their projects (except Fruit Share, but I'll do that right away now that I see you gave me the contact name for that).  I've also sent an email to Eric Rempel from South Eastman for a brief overview and status of his crew in Steinbach.

Who is the contact person for Transition Pinawa?  They don't seem to have a site.

Do you have a date in mind for the first issue?  I work better with deadlines (they help me prioritize).  Also, have you given any thought to the frequency of this newsletter?  Bi-weekly?  Monthly?

One last question - did you want a PDF or Word version of the newsletter? 

I think that's all for now.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the info, I've sent an email to Irene. 

I seem to be an administrator for the site now - I do have a lot more options when I log in.  I'll start looking through the help files to sort out how ning works.  I probably won't dive into that too far though before the first newsletter is out.

I think a monthly newsletter would be good (and realistic!).  Middle of June shouldn't be a problem at all.  I'd love your feedback though, so I'll make sure that you get a version of that at least a few days before we send it out so that you can look it over.

I'll have a pdf version of the newsletter as well - it won't be too much extra work.

Lastly - any update from the TW communications group for the newsletter?  I'm assuming you're heading that up right?



At 9:26am on June 4, 2012, David Sasaki said…

Will do!  I've gotten a hold of Rod, and we're going to meet so that he can show me a few of the interesting things going on in South Osborne.  I'll bring my camera and a tape recorder, and hopefully we should be able to get a really good portrait of the work that is going on there.
