Paul Wheaton is is the creator and tyrannical ruler of the largest permaculture forum on the internet, permies.com. He has been crowned the "Duke of Permaculture" and also referred to as the "Bad Boy of Permaculture" many times. He has released over 290 podcasts on many permaculture topics ranging from eco-building to frugality to cast iron cookware. He has also written gobs of articles on these topics as well. He is an Advanced Certified Master Gardener, permaculture design guru, farmer, community leader, and repository of well researched opinions. His blunt style is not for the faint of heart and he has no problem using the full beauty of the English language. Not to mention, he accomplishes all of this while rocking a pair of spiffy overalls.
So I took kind of bits and pieces from a bunch of the different bios. But yeah. Here is another option.
There are men and women all over the world pursuing lofty goals of all sorts. In most cases, their endeavours are of little real worth and often are motivated by greed, arrogance, hubris and all manner of human faults. The loudest, flashiest and most polished are usually the least noble, leaving the inverse as the characteristics to seek out in any search for those worthy of your respect. You should also filter out anyone that devotes a lot of time to trying to convince you of something or to change your mind and follow them. The most genuine explorers are the ones that have little time to talk about their discoveries but gladly welcome you to follow along if you're interested, just so long as you stay out of the way. Their followers become explorers in their own rights and provide tremendous breadth and depth to the quest, and they and their leader eventually metamorphose into a gigantic, towering creature whose stride is unwavering and whose purpose is clear, right, and beyond just being worthwhile, it is necessary. Paul Wheaton is more than merely a man pursuing permaculture advancement, Paul Wheaton is a leviathan of hope and possibility.
