I’m Gary, from Norfolk, England, but grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I see various old friends here. I was one of the co-founders of the Open Coop (with OliSB and Josef Davies Coates), met Wouter various times.
I was on the Board of the Transition Network for 4 years. I worked for the UK’s Open University for 37 years, creating courses in elecronics, environment among other things. I was one of the people that put the OU online, so helped invent online learning.
My EarthConnected website has more about me, various papers and talks, and a free ebook version of my book, eGaia, Growing a peaceful, sustainable Earth through communications.
My current project is Planetmakers, (website is still a work in progress, but great graphics!) and we are hoping to use BBB and Discourse as proof-of-concept software.
I’m looking forward to meeting more of you and working with you. Meet.coop looks like a great community!
