What’s This Site About?
While you can read the explanation by looking in the About, Site and FAQ pages, here is the quick, condensed version.
There is a lot happening with the ideas of a Resource Based Economy (RBE). At this point the three biggest efforts are the Thrive Movement, The Venus Project and The Zeitgeist Movement. There are also an assortment of small sites which tend to reflect the position of individuals or small groups.
All that is very good and we are happy to see such a high level of interest. It is pretty clear that the current way the world is run is not sustainable. Many of us feel an RBE is the best solution and quite possibly the only solution.
Expressing our feelings and ideas on-line is clearly an important part of moving RBE concepts forward. Unfortunately, the big RBE sites tend to restrict what you have to say. While that is their decision, there really is space in the movement for a way for individuals to blog about what’s on their mind.
While anyone could start their own blog on any of the many blogging sites, the idea here is to offer that same kind of free and unrestricted blogging but within a community. That is, all the blogs here (mine is at http://cooltop.rbeblogs.com, for example), while individual, are all under the rbeblogs roof. Today, you can find the individual blogs in the list at sites but we will be expanding the ways you can search in the future.
If you are interested in blogging, without restriction, about RBE ideas, please join us.
