Food justice - Public Growing

Based on voluntaryism principles of taking neither government nor corporate money, I am trying to build a web application for allowing people to grow food in open, public space for free. And I need help!

We need someone to do the database and object model and Node.js hosting. If you want to get involved, please contact my gmail: dhtmlkitchen.

Guitar Improvisation Class

I practice well and regularly these days. I can share this discipline with others of all levels. I need a room that is secure and where I can make some noise.

Berklee: Consumerism and putting money and marketing before education. Little emphasis on performance, even for performance majors.

My School is cooperative and doocratic. Payment is sliding scale and I accept bitcoins. If you are broke but can play and show up on time, you may be accommodated.

Kids who went to Berklee because they were inspired by Steve Vai got "financial aid" and student loans only to accrue $80,000+ student loan debt, which they slavishly repay over the next 10-20 years, working a job that requires a "bachelor's degree".

There is no good reason why the cost of music school must be so high.

Stuff I like

Guitar

I like to play and teach. Some of my musical influence include J.S. Bach, Paul Gilbert, and Yngwie Malmsteen.

Exercise

Strength training, martial arts, and parkour.

Nutrition and Health

I am interested in organic, medicinal foods, local foods, food sovereignty raw milk, pastured eggs.

Skills

JavaScript

I wrote many articles on former dhtmlkitchen.com, comp.lang.javascript newsgroup, and the c.l.js FAQ.

I've built things for companies where marketing needs weren't necessarily geared towards generating actual value to the world.

Massage

Professionally trained at School of Traditional Thai Massage. I practice deep work, ideal for those who exercise hard (like me).
