An idea worth spreading

'When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that is in itself a choice.'~William James (leader of the philosophical movement of Pragmatism)

It is with this quote that I surmise Geo-Engineering is an actuality rather than a possibility. With current strides toward minimizing carbon output our culture effectively has the intent to effect climate. Whether individuals/organization/corporations/nations "buy into" such programs as LEED/BREEAM or international efforts such as the Kyoto Protocol, the ideology remains true.

This is the Catch-22 of our Age of Awareness.

I'm passionate about

Alternative concepts on Sustainable Architecture, Bio-mimicry, Adaptive Design, Restorative Design, Responsive Architecture, Positive Impact, Geo-Engineering and Terraformative Design.

LIVE CHAT With Adam Ostrow: What should happen to your digital identity after you die?
It's a very personal decision. Like what you would want to happen to your body. Everyone is entitled to their decision in the matter. I find the idea of an interactive AI, set up with all of your previous preferences making previous choice based decisions, very interesting. Would it be based off of a psychoanalytical breakdown of oneself, doing a personal psychohistory analysis to forecast future decisions?
