Superadobe - What is Superadobe? Superadobe (sandbag and barbed wire) technology is a large, long adobe. It is a simple adobe, an instant and flexible line generator. It uses the materials of war for peaceful ends, integrating traditional earth architecture with contemporary global safety requirements. Long or short sandbags are filled with on-site earth and arranged in layers or long coils (compression) with strands of barbed wire placed between them to act as both mortar and reinforcement (tension).

Hacking the system: How to land meetings with anyone you want I’m convinced I have a strategy that allows me to get a meeting with any person I want, no matter how famous, rich, busy, or difficult they are to reach. Why? Because I’ve tried it, and my success rate so far is 100%. It just doesn’t fail. When I was interviewing founders for my book, Startups Open Sourced, I had a few names on there that I just shouldn’t have been able to get access to. It’s one thing to reach out to my immediate network and get meetings, but there were people who I didn’t have any connections in common with and it was a crapshoot at best to think I could get them to respond to one of my e-mails, let alone agree to give me one to two hours of their time for an in-depth interview.

Summer Salon Series 2011: What does a city need? | San Diego Museum of Art Thursdays, June 2 through September 1, 5:00 - 9:00 pm. "The chief worth of civilization is just that it makes the means of living more complex; that it calls for great and combined intellectual efforts, instead of simple, uncoordinated ones, in order that the crowd may be fed and clothed and housed and moved from place to place. Because more complex and intense intellectual efforts mean a fuller and richer life. They mean more life. Life is an end in itself, and the only question as to whether it is worth living is whether you have enought of it." -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Summer Salon Series 2011: What does a city need? | San Diego Museum of Art

National Charrette Institute | The Charrette as an Agent for Change New Urbanism is a holistic approach to healthy transformative community change. It challenges all development conventions, including codes, transportation standards, and finance mechanisms. It also challenges peoples’ perceptions regarding growth, for example, “density done right can make things better.” Early on, New Urbanists recognized that success required that everyone affected by the outcome be included in the planning effort from the beginning.
