When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I'm just a peaceful person
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Our Planet, Inflation
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
There is no real obstacle to peace...I would call it more like a "developmental stage." This stage of development has lasted through history. We are about to move in to a new stage, in which a type of Peace never before known will be possible. Through history and prior to that, beings have always faced competitive issues over resources. This is about to change.
Can we change the world?
More about me
Developing, a business approach to improving socio-economic conditions world wide. The theme of the product is "an entrepreneurial tool set."

Selfport could be characterized as philanthropy for profit, and has elements in common with Kiva, Prosper, Facebook, the idea of "social business" as defined by Muhammad Yunnus, or social entrepreneurialism, as seen through the Skoll Foundation, Ashoka, Endeavor, etc.

All that said, our first products will revolve around entertainment, and look more like American Idol than some stodgy do-gooder charity. After all, we are moving towards a golden age in which Kurzweil's "law of accelerating returns" will allow for a higher standard of living for everyone that has ever been experienced by anyone, even today.

In this world soon to come, creativity and imagination will translate immediately through technology to experiential products (a la Second Life, full sensory vr, and tools like emachineshop morphing in to assemblers.)

And Selfport is designed to help set the stage, along with lots of epi-phenomena of technology, from web 2.0 to nano, giving beings the socio-economic paradigm to rapidly improve their lives, and our environment and world, through mutual benefit.

Questions for Kiva (or you or me)

Posted on February 26, 2009 at 6:24pm 0 Comments

A couple of months ago, I talked with David about writing some articles for iPeace. I suggested a theme of peace vis-a-vis business. Since I've been deeply immersed in building a social investment platform, with an entrepreneurial tool set, for the past 2 years, which is designed to "improve socio-economic conditions world-wide" (read: set the conditions for world peace), my market research has led me to study many worthy companies, efforts and business models. I suggested to… Continue

words and memes

I write like some people doodle. Words are like baubles I take pleasure in stringing together. I delight like a baby at the phantasms of thought that emerge from this mechanical process. The sun heats the earth, and weather spins out clouds. Similarly, language produces these "rows and floes of angel hair," and the wide eyed mind reads them like the I Ching, projecting imagery, and calling it thought.

There is something magical about language. Naming was the human power in the garden… Continue

Kryptonite and the Peacock

On June 6, 2005, my health suddenly crashed. One day I was superman, the next I was at death's door.

I was a health fanatic when I crashed. That same avidity for health optimization was turned to recovery modalities and understanding etiologies in complex systemic and syndrome type diagnoses.

I'm pretty comprehensive in research and experimentation. This has led not only through the forest of pharmaceuticals, herbals, and into the… Continue

Creativity-based Economy

Buckminster Fuller liked to do calculations like this: He summed the total money in the world, and divided it by the number of people. Back then (1970's) that made everyone a millionaire. These sorts of thoughts are good mind exercises, and points of contemplation.

However, in fact, money and resources are divided they way they are, which is not only uneven among people, but among groups, like governments and companies. And the rights to use these resources is decided by a complex… Continue

I about to fly bach to Italy... I'm leaving sunday morning and my head is in packing and spending time with my family... I'm italian and my wife american... three children (grown up.. 26,23,17) with double citizenship. We lived all in Italy, but two years ago my father in law (82) manifested altzeimer, and my wife and younger doughter (Narayana) came here (Redmond WA) to assist him. Later, last year came ShantiGaia (older doughter) with Italian fiancee and their two kids (now got married and planning to stay). Adam (son 23) and I came for Xmas and to help sell the house and memorabilia of the old man (passed away last year)... I'm on my way back to Italy as my visa expires and i have things to finish there.
In october i have plans to go to India, where i have projects and friends waiting for me...
Anyway... i am a free man and available to consider viable cooperations with selfport or related links if my experience and creative enthusiasm could be of use for the upliftment of the last of the lasts.
The video is the only material i have in english, but there is more in italian, with images of some of the different locations of the cooperativa. Most of the videos are from the 90s.. this one war recorded in 1994 at the local TV station of the Valley... Valsesia, 28 villages, people, hardheaded mountaineers, with an important Walser community (german 'amish' immigrated there in 1400).
If you are interested, when i'll go bach home i'll have time write to you more about what we did and how we did it.
