Just found out that Jay Baldwin, one of the editors of the Whole Earth Catalog and a student of Buckminster Fuller, passed away on March 8. As a builder and designer, Baldwin was a  major early influence for me. Like Bucky, he taught people about comprehensive design science. He had a trailer that was a mobile workshop, filled with all tbe tools he needed to travel and fabricate almost anything. I've been dreaming of just such a mobile workshop myself for years. Baldwin was a tool expert, and I would have loved to see in that trailer.
So he wasn't a permaculturist, but as a comprehensive design scientist he was an inspiration to many of us.RIP.
 Heres an interview with him from 1994.
