I'd like to increase my network of permaculture friends on Facebook and elsewhere... Please add me if you want to connect. (So you know who you're connecting with, I do a lot with Appropedia.org, supporting knowledge sharing for permaculture etc)

I'm a fervent advocate of open knowledge, open source, open everything... And yet I've been enjoying Facebook lately. Such a paradox - but I'm looking forward to an open source alternative that I can support.

I'm at

Appropedia is at
* http://www.facebook.com/Appropedia
* http://twitter.com/appropedia
* http://identi.ca/appropedia (like Twitter but more features and open source).

I look forward to sharing ideas, especially about how to create change in our communities.

Chris, I hope when diaspora emerges from development it becomes a useful tool for permaculture connections as well as a great open source alternative to Facebook.

Anyone want to sign up for Diaspora*? There aren't too many permies on there I have been able to find. I found a pod with some bandwidth here in the US, but maybe there are reasons to go to an international one?

Here is my profile on the AptitudeWorks pod.
