Biosphere loveliness

nearing completion: the prototype

nearing completion: the prototype

We are finally in full-on production mode for the Biosphere online experience. It’s great to work with our committed and competent team.

We’ll shortly launch our ‘work in progress’ site – this is going to be the start of the community engagement plan. We hope we will be able to clarify, de-mystify and in some cases simply put things right, that have been mis-reported. We’ll also be able to get feedback, insights and suggestions form the community.

Let the conversations begin. Looking forward to it.

Jackson goes ape

Jackson goes ape

Not a single quote from Jackson. He is livid. Jackson however has a pretty face and is terrific with shapes, colours, tags and cheese melts.

And have I mentioned: PunkLogic are now at NoosaBoardrooms? Come and see us. Our phone nr is +61 7 5430 6610.

PunkLogic is us

Long time no blogging. I have teamed up with Jackson Beale to form PunkLogic. We have been running the Creative Alliance Communications Team and found out, that we are a pretty good fit.

Let me catalyze you!

So it turns out I have been elected for the Noosa Creative Community Leadership Program – a 12 month project including a two day seminar with Richard Florida’s Creative Class Group.

From the Commitment Letter:

The purpose of the Noosa Creative Community Leadership Project is to empower you and 29 other leaders to work together and in teams to effect initiatives that will make the Noosa Region an even better place to live, work and play for all its inhabitants, current and future.
To accomplish this, the Noosa Civic Creative Alliance has partnered with the Creative Class Group to develop and implement the Noosa CCLP. The Seminar will teach you the Four Ts of economic development, Technology, Talent and Tolerance, and Territorial Assets, analyzing the region using the 4T Metrics and developing a framework that will assist to further the region’s economic growth and quality of place.

I am very much looking forward to it and I shall endeavor to keep you informed, dear reader.

Where I live

KEEN – Big Bob and Joe Natoli show down
This was a good night (sorry not such a good photo) at Noosa Gallery – a meeting of Noosa’s Knowledge Entrepreneurs to pick the brains of the mayoral candidates for the post-amalgamation Noosa-Maroochydore-Caloundra Super Shire.

Coinciding with this I came across Enrique Peñalosa – former mayor of Bogota, Columbia.
