In addition, to my usual 50-60 hr/week running my company I have started a new effort
I’ve worked with enough local groups in the last few years, I found that we are each working in our local areas for much the same goals, and it’s past time (long past) for each local area to reinvent themselves by themselves, and not rely on major companies or big government to do all heavy lifting — neither has ever been good at innovating.
SO I found that the groups I worked with needed my technical skills, to carry their message, and as I work more on those projects, it became clear this is not a local issue for us, other areas
have the same needs. What Thrives Publishing is an effort to balance local and global, local events, efforts and groups, global resources, reference information and connections to larger efforts.
