I'm willing to organize a Mollison event here in Ojai, especially if it is 
simpler than an entire design course, and that there's good participation by 
guild locals in preparation.

If someone wishes to contact Bill, let's set it up. We can gather the 
currency and interest to stoke him in this abundant region.

Let me know off list to start: seedmind at,
