Five years ago, under the screen name of ‘MrGrim,” University of Ohio undergrad Alan Schaaf uploaded a post to Reddit that would change the image-hosting market forever. He wrote in his post, “I got fed up with all the other image hosts out there so I made my own. It doesn't force you to compress your images, and it has neat things like crop, resize, rotate, and compression from 10-100. It's my gift to you. Let's not see anymore Imageshack/Photobucket around here.”
Bebo was founded in 2005 by husband and wife - Michael & Xochi Birch. It grew into the 3rd largest social network in the world and indeed - fun times were had. They sold the company in 2008 to AOL for $850M and celebrated with a victory pint. Over the years, the website faded away, until last year the original founders decided to buy Bebo back for $1 million, and began brainstorming ways to re-invent it into something fresh.

Transition Culture -- Rob Hopkins Eamon O'Hara on the "important catalytic effect" of community-led action One of the most fascinating recent studies into the impact of Transition was Local Communities Leading the Way to a Low Carbon Society, a report published by AEIDL (Association Européenne pour l’Information sur le Développement Local. It looks at Transition, permaculture and ecovillage networks, what it calls the "Silent Revolution", "a potentially powerful driver of pro-environmental behaviour change". We caught up with Eamon O'Hara, who created the report, to find out more about it, and about his conclusions. How did you create this report, and what research did you do for it?

The focus of permaculture is to design and establish societal systems that provide for humanity’s material and non-material needs such as food, water, shelter, energy, and health in a way that is symbiotic and synergistic with the Earth’s natural ecosystems. More recently permaculture is incorporating an ever-growing landscape of diverse fields and skill sets and is being applied towards areas such as business, government, economics, group process, social systems, inner work, and spiritual practice.
