First, a bit about...
me
unschooler
runner
entrepreneur
‘career path’
          ‘founding’




1991                   2010




           ‘working’
Life is messy and
 unpredictable.
I don’t know
what I’m doing.
Everything I do...
teaches me about what
     i’m good at...
connects me with
people I can do more
     stuff with...
challenges me to look
  deeper and ask...
What’s the point?
13,700,000,000 years ago
4,450,000,000 years ago
130,000 years ago
7,300 years ago - Agriculture
150 years ago - Industrial Revolution
We are powerful.
1945 - Hiroshima
We are dangerous.
1983 - Exxon Valdez Spill
1994 - Rwanda
2000 - Aral Sea dies
We thought we
were in control.
2001 - 911
2006 - Climate Change
2008 - Global markets collapse
We were wrong.
“A flaw in the model...




...that defines how the world works.”
WE
...are making our planet
       inhospitable.
We are killing
 each other.
We are killing
 ourselves.
We’re screwed.
But, there’s hope.
If we
created this mess...
... then we
   can create
something better.
