I'm not really a shining example of the energy shift thing, but I do try to do the best I can. I do have plans to make efforts in that area in the near future, but in mean time try to focus my efforts on conservation, and green living.
I'm a carpenter by trade, and live in Easter Ontario, Canada, on a small farm, though I don't really do a farming. I did have a somewhat successful trial project this past summer raising some pastured pigs, and will probably give that a go again next spring.
My other big passion right now is open source projects. I'm a big fan of the whole idea, and have even started a website about it (don't worry Mods, I wont spam it here - unless of course you say I can mention it ;) )
Actually it's part of the reason I'm here, to learn more about where things are at technology wise. I'm very interested in doing some home brew projects for myself, as well as hopefully having people collaborate with me.
Anyway, way to long of an intro.
Look forward to meeting you all.

It was so nice that we do good for our environment even on our own simple ways since it could still change things for the better.
Good luck for your future projects and hope to see more of your contributions around.
Have a nice day.

I agree with you zaraina, it's great when people make a huge change, but they are in the minority and only constitute a small percentage of the worlds consumption. Ultimately it's the small changes that we all need to make that will have the biggest impact in the short term. Plus the more people that make even the small changes, the more it will trickle back to big business and show that we are all wanting change.

When one or two raindrops hit you, you just keep walking.
But if it keeps raining, it becomes a torrent and then a flood.
Hard to walk through a flood.
Together we can change things.
We are the flood.
