The Library has added a really impressive website to its “selections.” The site was brought to our attention by James Meyer of Opsis Architecture, Pringle Creek “Master Architect and Planner, Building Regeneration and Commercial Mixed-use Architect.” In other words, to imagine Pringle Creek without James’s input is to start over.

Oh, yeah, the website. It is: WorldChanging: Tools, Models and Ideas for Building a Bright Green Future.

Interesting, a website with a long subtitle. Perhaps inspired by Borat.

Anyway, WorldChanging.com, whose publisher is Leif Utne, son of the founder of Utne Reader, a progressive magazine from way back,

. . . works from a simple premise: that the tools, models and ideas for building a better future lie all around us. That plenty of people are working on tools for change, but the fields in which they work remain unconnected. That the motive, means and opportunity for profound positive change are already present. That another world is not just possible, it’s here. We only need to put the pieces together.

Informed by that premise, we do our best to bring you links to (and analysis of) those tools, models and ideas in a timely and concise manner.

James Meyer also recommends TED. You might notice TED has a sponsor ad on WorldChanging. TED stands for “Technology, Entertainment, Design.” They put on a huge annual program in Monterey, CA, with big name speakers from various disciplines. The beauty part: listen and/or watch the talks from previous years on your computer, or download them to your iPod and listen while on the go. Sure, it would be fun to attend, but who has the time?
