Sustainable Ballard Festival

The folks over at Sustainable Ballard are so extraordinarily cool. Honestly, hands down, cool. No other word for it. For the geeks among us, and, let's face it, to be blog savvy, you have to be a bit of a geek, the majority of their website is wiki based. What does that mean? It means that the collaborative, free-wheeling, participatory aspects of community building have moved from the person-to-person world to the online world where everyone has a hand (keystroke?) in shaping the virtual space of their website. Wow.

Second, there is the Sustainable Ballard Festival. Held on October 1 at the new Ballard Commons Park (with the ever-so-exciting Ballard Bowl) the festival features a smorgasborg of progressive urbanism. Workshops, exhibitors, speakers, an activity tent, etc. are all there to make people think about how they live and what kind of city they want to create. Should be a blast; see you there.
