Collaboration, Education, Livelihoods and Development in a Changing World

Charley Quinton

(Written by Pamela, updae March 2012). Charley and I met through Coalition of the Willing (probably towards the end of 2010). We followed up with skype chats, in groups and one-to-one.

Charley explored dadamac.net and my posterous sites. He is a great encourager and patient teacher. He helped me behind the scenes and, through his actions, demonstrated that he saw value in what I was trying to offer.

He reduced my negative attitude towards CotW's wiki based approach, and I soon came to value him as the "bridge builder" between dadamac and the CotW techies. I saw him as the initiator and hidden hand behind the permeable membrane that came to exist  between the two networks. However things happened during 2012, including the Occupy Movement and a related shift in the emphais of CotW, during a time when Charley wasn't free to work on the Dadamac CotW relationship.

Our collaborative emphasis moved to our personally shared interests  - especially  eco-development and alternative education.

I met Pamela through the Coalition of the Willing "ProM" mapping/matching project
I am working to build a local transition initiative with a "heart & soul" focus upon song and dance. I intuit that a linkup with dadamac constitutes a needed resonance toward catalyzing an action-based network. The inter-continental aspects of such a confluence of ideas could result in some development of GIS tools that will work anywhere on the planet.
