Buckminster Fuller was, as far as I can tell, one of the original EcoGeeks. Paraphrasing Mr. Fuller...we should make the world work well for 100% of people in the smallest amount of time possible without "ecological offense." Sounds like a grand vision for the future if I ever heard one. While old Bucky worked hard for that while was alive, now we've got a chance to continue his dream.
The Buckminster Fuller Institute is sponsoring the Buckminster Fuller Challenge, which is asking for "design science" solutions that can use a small amount of energy or effort to dramatically chance the world for the better. Frankly, I'm looking for some of those myself, but if you've got one, you can submit it to the Buckminster Fuller Institute between September 4th and October 30th for your chance to win a hundred thousand dollars!
I'll be honest....I'm tempted to submit something myself. But, more than that, I'm extremely excited to see what might come out of this challenge. Don't worry, when the results come in EcoGeek will be reporting.
