Why You Should Give (Part Of) Your Company To Your Employees Todd Defren and Jim Joyal had built a company together. Shift Communications had grown from a small PR startup to a company of 110 employees, with offices in Boston, New York, and San Francisco. They’d won a suite of awards, were doing strong revenue, and were beginning to receive overtures from larger companies about a possible acquisition. The only problem was that Defren and Joyal had “asymmetrical motivations,” as Defren puts it. Joyal was over a decade older and ready to start thinking about estate planning. Defren felt he had years of work ahead of him. Ananda Village From his youth, Ananda’s founder, Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters) had dreamed of creating small communities based on cooperation and high ideals. When he became Yogananda’s disciple in 1948, he discovered that Yogananda, too, was committed to the concept of “World Brotherhood Colonies.”

Building with Reclaimed Lumber and Recycled Materials – Green Building Elements Materials Published on March 8th, 2009 | by ziggy One of the most sustainable ways to acquire materials for building a house is to collect parts from soon-to-be demolished homes. Explore, Thrive, Create Explore, Thrive, Create is a new community that is in the beginning phases of formation. Our primary aim is to live a completely sustainable lifestyle by which we live off of the earth’s natural resources as much as possible and strive to explore new areas of the world through worldwide travel. We know that traveling abroad and exploring new cultures is not only adventurous, but it also opens the mind in regards to tolerance and diversity.

The potential of the co-operative business model We’d like to thank Kate Whittle from Cooperantics for this guest post responding to my TEDx talk (The unstoppable rise of the collaborative economy) and exploring further one of the key facets, which is the potential of the co-operative business model. Here’s the talk just in case you haven’t seen it. Shane Hughes TEDx Lausanne Very interesting TEDx talk by Shane Hughes, inspiring and thought-provoking. I’d like to add some thoughts on the potential of the co-operative business model as part of this collaborative economy. 10 Utopian Intentional Communities with Distinct Values From tree house villages in Costa Rica to yoga communes in Hawaii, these 10 intentional communities are havens of peace, creativity and sustainability. Imagine waking up to the sound of bells from a temple to share in a morning yoga ritual overlooking the mountains of Peru, or the glittering Pacific Ocean in Hawaii. Picking fresh vegetables from your neighborhood garden to cook in a community-wide meal in a spacious, shared kitchen. Building your own non-toxic, mortgage-free cob house in a low-impact neighborhood of like-minded nature lovers. Stepping out of your very own treehouse to gaze at a network of aerial walkways that look like something out of a sci-fi movie.

Deconstruction vs Demolition: Reclaiming Building Materials By Bill Slawski, on October 8th, 2008 Houses are built to last, at least most are, for a few years. But what happens when someone decides that a home should be replaced, and the property it’s upon should be used for another building? Usually, homes in that situation are demolished, and pieces of the building finds their way to a landfill. Much of that material is reusable, at least until it is torn apart by a bulldozer.
