Blog 1: 6footsix
This gem of a blog is by Colleen Smith, a beach volley player in CA. Her height is as exceptional as her being. In her blog, she asks how she can use her visibility to bring awareness to green issues. She is especially interested in engaging with kids in fun, playful, and powerful ways that motivate change.
Blog 2: BubbleGeneration
Wild card insightful man says things both brilliant and a bit disturbing. Never expect him to say what everyone else says. He marks his own territory effectively, directly, and swiftly. I sense that he is deeply moved to push our world to a better more thrivable space. He also blogs through Harvard Biz blogs.
Blog 3: MoveSmart
The organization putting up this blog is working toward better technology for residential integration. Justin, the founder, has a deep understanding of the issues at hand, a great grasp of the possibilities of technology, and a profound commitment to a better world. I love conversing with him, and I love reading what he is thinking about.
Blog 4: Unimaginable Inscape
A poetic sensibility + lit crit “reading” ability + history studies ability to contextualize = an ability to convey a compelling, situated story. Which Jo directs to landscape where she reads the world through the accidental “art” around us all. Sublime.
Blog 5: Do Good Well
Of course I love a person who has an asset mapping background and talks about doing good and philanthropy and Africa. He taglines it: best practices and beyond for citizen-led global social change. Indeed.
There are dozens more I enjoy, but these strike me as the ones that have yet to make the blogroll–but really deserve to be there. Will update. Thanks for the inspiration, information, and insights!
