Dear GENI Friend,
As the GENI project grows around the world, some
milestones take on special significance. One such
landmark is the enclosed issue of
magazine. It is your continued support that makes
possible this kind of accomplishment.
We have been working with the Mission
Earth Activity of the Society for Computer Simulation
for almost two years. They have been our technical
advisors (no fee required) since the purpose of GENI
and Mission Earth are so closely aligned.
In a memorial
to Ben Clymer, a GENI champion and lifelong simulationist,
the Special Issue on Mission Earth was published this
month. We worked hard to get the Dymaxion Map and
Buckminster Fuller on the cover since Bucky's
World Game was presented years ago in their Society.
Paul-Michael Dekker, Amy Bruton and I authored the
paper on the
GENI Model which became the featured article.
Then, the Society joined as a sponsor of the Buckminster
Fuller Centennial Symposium and Celebration (San Diego,
July 14 - 16) and inserted the Event
Announcement in the magazine that went out to
all 3000 SCS members!
This magazine cover now sits in almost every Computer
Science Department, Supercomputer Lab, and major engineering
firm around the world. These are the very same partnerships
required if we are going to alter the decisions of
the nation's policy-makers and energy planners.
Clearly, GENI has just
to a whole new level. This work is only possible with
support. Please share fully with us the acknowledgement
we feel when this kind of exposure reaches a whole
new audience, especially one of this caliber.
