The Future

The future — a healthy future, anyway — is small, local, and connected.

The implications of this are substantial:

  • Conferences that are just as good (or better) but don’t require travel
  • Teaching the people you can reach (online and off)
  • Aiming for sustainability and sufficiency in a community rather than extracting the most from a global economy
  • And on and on

If you want to be famous, if you want to have influence, if you want to make things better … it’s never too soon to get really, really clear who exactly you’re trying to reach and serve.
