I have been so blessed in my life
this summer, I tried give somethin' back.
may 20 to early july, 1996
greyhound busin' through 17 cities across the american south, stayin' in homes and teachin' net.a second leg through the northward parts is ready, as soon as I have time. winter does not seem so inviting - too many cold clothes to carry through canada.
a hearty thanks to my wonderful hosts.
I set out to accomplish something particular -
was anything achieved?
spoke with more than a hundred total folks at cafes or clubs in austin, salt lake city, tucson, san diego, and at a university in missouri
taught web publishing to a ten year old in north carolina, a few enviromental, human rights, gay rights, reproductive rights groups in utah, a native seed bank in arizona, and some hosts and friends along the way
made a major breakthrough, at a club by the same name in witchita
and met lots of cool people who convinced me that folks is generally nice, given the chance.
I postponed the northern leg to live with howard rheingold in marin, and help him start electric minds.
