  1. Great podcast! I see the ideas are falling into place.

    Anyone interested in creating in creating meta modern/game B community around Silicon Valley——which I call “Conscious Valley” in John Mackey Conscious Capitalism terminology. Riding with Game A for smooth transition, especially COVID 19 makes remote work a necessity.

    Or anyone interested in creating another one in Vancouver Island——which I call Regenerative Enlightenment?

    These should easily 10X game A across whole set of measures—social, cultural, ecological economical, financial etc…as well as human wellbeing and flourishing.
