Verse Vendor

Dream type: Transformation

So I'm walking along, "Oh, look at how sunny California is," I think. I go into my local coffee shop for a date with this woman & "OMG!" There's a vending machine for poetry. I guess I have 3 bucks on my credit card. Cool, it'll totally impress this woman. Oh and I can pick from Bruce Sterling, Al Young (former poet laureate of California) & a bunch of people I don't know. It comes with a piece of gum. Awesome. Sold. It even printed it on newsprint for me. Wow. Wouldn't that be cool: to support our artists!

The Orpheus Project

Dream type: Transformation

California will host the most spectacular singular site ever envisioned as an international venue that blends the arts, medicine, and technology—strategically designed to awe, inspire, and simultaneously heal people around the world. The Orpheus Project is inspired by Orpheus, who moved the masses with the sweetness of his music, and inspired much of the literature, poetry, and drama of ancient Greece and Rome.

recycling everything

Dream type: Transformation

It is 2015. I come home from school in my bike. We go to the store and buy one of a few kinds of clothes. We recycle our old things we don't need and some of them we give away. People don't care very much about money and don't waste it. Everybody helps each other.

help the homeless

Dream type: Transformation

I think that California should help the homeless because first, everyone needs a home. Second, in recent facts 1.6 to 1.7 million people under 18 will experience homelessness each year. Isn't that just sad. If that is not good enough, 1 out of every 3 homeless people are under the age of 18. These are some reasons I think California's future is to help the homeless. Thank you.

California Communities Transformed by Regionalized Sustainable Food System

Dream type: Transformation

A future day reveals California transformed by community based economic innovations in the food system. On this day, California’s communities are connected, resilient and strong. I see a future in which our neighborhoods have a vibrant food and farm industry; we are healthy by accessing fresh affordable food; our rich diversity is expressed by preserving food heritage; our environment is free of industrial toxins; and our once disenfranchised communities are empowered to sustain their own health and beyond. Support my project Farm Food Connect in developing models, tools and incentives that enable this dream to be a reality.

Critical Party

Dream type: Transformation

"A sober-minded assessment of risks and resources" leads California to re-valuate the breadth and depth of its cognitive surplus. Now "California knows how to party" even better and my work feels moar like play. I participate in a superstructure called Critical Party QG. We mash up pop culture with stigmergy networks to produce lively collaboration contexts and project coordination strategies. As a Memeticist, I research Other People's Metaphors and measure their semantic integrity. The strongest bridges support most of tomorrow's parties (edge innovations). This is planetary stewardship with SyCC beats (strongly connected components)!

Anticipatory Governance

Dream type: Growth

Renewal can only sustainably be achieved if we learn to manage interdependence at all levels. We need to resolve the paradox of locality and global connectedness. Social entrepreneurs often see emerging problems before they are big enough to reach the radar of business and political leaders. Yet they lack resources. In my future civic leadership uses technology to connect with communities around ideas of anticipatory governance. Community level innovation across the board can then be amplified system wide in education, health, energy, food and environment by the same technologies. Renewal needs a renewal of Trust in Leadership.

Algal Bloom

Dream type: Transformation

Mayor Villaraigosa's creation of the LA Cleantech Corridor™ (2008) lay the groundwork for a restoration of the once-mighty Los Angeles River. Funded by water bonds, and powered by permaculture and synthbio, the campaign was long - with the waterway formally declared 'clean' in late 2015. 18 months after 'mission accomplished', a collosal algal mat floats beneath the East LA Interchange, filtering toxins from the water; in Paramount and East Compton, green algae provides an emerging Nutrition Commons; and further downstream, the marijuana sharecroppers of Long Beach use unlicensed channels to rerout water - irrigating their backyard plantations for free.

Festival of the Future

Dream type: Transformation

The start of 2011 sees California embark on an ambitious PR campaign to re-brand itself in effort to boldly go where no state has gone before, declaring the coming Decade of the Future and claiming the title, State of the Future. The zeitgeist-defining move catalyzes the popular imagination with an unprecedented solidarity and a singular vision of unity: a healthy, creative and prosperous future for CA, the nation, and humanity. The centerpiece: Festival of the Future - an annual celebration capturing the spirit of a New Future Age, one driven by foresight, innovation, sustainable solutions and proactive synergies.
