Paul Wheaton, Fred Tyler, Jennifer Richardson and Josiah Kobernik continue their discussion about how Paul's projects can help resolve childhood cancer and build a better world.
Paul believes that global positive change comes from teaching a billion people about the benefit they can derive from one simple thing that happens to also make a positive, global difference. We need to share dozens of similar things. We need enough data and information to send a picture and explain the benefits that they want. These are the bricks to build a better world. Many people still use icky stuff because they don't know of convenient alternatives. We will change the world for the better not by shaming but by doing good things in our own backyard and sharing pictures.
Paul's property is loaded with new projects and people working on getting projects completed and posting pictures.He's produced a dozen movies, the cards, videos, podcasts, articles, interviews, and the best of them all - the book, which is the best collection of things to add comfort and money to your life that just so happen to also solve global problems.
His forward velocity is limited by resources. To gain those resources, he tries to create something of great benefit and value in return. He has a kickstarter running where he returns ten times the value of what people put in. He has about a hundred people that are actively pushing him forward. He has hundreds of things to share already, and ideas for hundreds more - which he needs to make and document and then connect to billions of people. The greenhouse kickstarter is just one brick. SKIP is the foundation for accelerating ideas on a global scale. Maybe the next kickstarter will be for the SKIP book.

I think these two podcasts on cancer do distill and explicitly state what might take devouring a good bit more of content to understand what some of the values (and goals) at permies and Wheaton Labs are.
And yes, I agree that trying to help relatives/family understand the path that some of us desire to follow is a tad difficult. I wish bafflement was not something encountered in sharing the path I wish to follow. At least, we’re not alone in encountering how some people feel confused about some of us wanting this path.
