So... HI!

I've been into permaculture for about 3 years now. Learning all i can from different articles, documentaries, and youtube. I only just found the forums two weeks ago.
I was looking for podcasts and lo and behold i found them (thanks paul) along with permies. Those podcasts make my long ride to and from work the best parts of my day.
So, I'd like to give back some how.

My skill set includes:
-wordsmith
-public speaking
-thinking outside the box
-my friends say I'm "personable"

If there is something I could do let me know. I could turn threads into articles? Do voice-over/narration? I have no idea really.

Welcome to permies Jason! So glad to have you here! As for things to do, Paul lists some in the team permies thread. We're glad for any help we can get. I forgot where the other thread was, I think it was the promoting your stuff thread, but generally one of the most helpful things that can be done is to answer other people's questions on permies and just talk, be nice and share permaculture related stuff with the rest of us or ask questions!

Yeah, for that, I find that setting a time limit of how long I can be online or creating an intended list of objectives (stuff to get done) to be helpful- that way there can be some balance. So much happens online these days that it is at least advisable to keep up to date with certain things in whatever corners of the Internet we like.

I like to keep up on the news, emails, permies, and the latest research and development. So once I check each of those, I'm mostly done.

We could really use some help with appropedia. I've seen Paul say that a bunch of times
