Buckminster Fuller's ideas live on!

Dear GENI Friend,

Buckminster Fuller was the inspiration for The GENI Initiative. I had the opportunity to hear him speak two times: first as a high school student who knew little about the world, and twelve years later at a Hunger Project board meeting where I hung on each word.

Bucky was a visionary engineer — working to design systems and tools that would enable all humanity to experience a quality living standard. When I learned that the energy grid is the World Game's highest priority objective, I was both stunned and inspired.

Now his archives are becoming more available to the public at Stanford University in Palo Alto. There are several web sites that continue to add value to this resource. I suggest four:

  1. www.bfi.org
  2. www.cruzio.com/~joemoore/
  3. www.worldgame.org
  4. www.geni.org/globalenergy/projects/news/whats_new/exclusive

You can help bring these ideas to the stage! Attached is the announcement on the World Premiere of R Buckminster Fuller: The History (and Mystery) of the Universe.   It is scheduled for March - April at the San Diego Repertory Theater. We have been working with the producers to make this a success — and then travel to cities around the world. Imagine if people hear that there's enough to go around — and truly understand it?

In partnership for the planet,

Peter Meisen
