Found this blog (Global Guerillas) recently...

...and the dude who writes it (John Robb) seems pretty hep to the 3Es and the issues which we're wrestling with in these here parts.

He's a Yale/USAF Academy grad and is busily trying to nut out localized solutions to the global predicaments we're facing.

A few recent entries that might be of interest:

An entrepreneur's approach to resilient communities:  http://globalguerrillas.typepad.com/globalguerrillas/2010/02/turning-resilient-communities-into-a-business-opportunity.html

The three horsemen of global depression (compare and contrast with Dr. Chris' five horsemen):

The resilient community (he's all about resilience these days, it seems [as should we all be!]):

And regarding the vulnerability of highly complex systems to disruption (or 'systempunkt'):

Food for thought...

Interesting stuff. My husband (GeekTech here on the forums) was especially fascinated by Smart Microgrids.

I haven't read enough of his stuff to know where exactly he's really coming from, but my limited sample of his thoughts seems to indicate he's on the same page (or at least adjacent) to where we/Dr. Chris are.  IMO, he's smart enough to teach me a thing or three.  If GeekTech has any thoughts about smartgrids (or anything else) I'm all ears....
