You have reached the personal website of John Abbe. My life/work/play is for a thriving present and future for people, and other living things & eco- and social systems. This means more real, free, generative, and contributory ways of seeing, understanding, doing and being, by and for everything from individuals to groups to globally, from cat herding to world undomination. What I'm most involved with right now / recently:
- Helios Network (managing the local sustainability calendar and generally working to reinvigorate the network), Hike the Pipe, and Flood the System Eugene
- Great March for Climate Action (2014)
- Nonviolent Communication
- Co-Intelligence Institute
- Group Works
- Web Consultant
Walnut Street Co-op (my long-time residence)
This wiki includes my blog. Some of what's in both is me writing about things for others' benefit (and my own clarity). Some is notes and records for myself, done in public as a living experiment in transparency and in ways to organize & relate things.
There are many ways to contact me.
