Welcome, Alan. You are Mr. "Walden Two" in my book, advocate for the the only sustainable, just, and sane way of living on earth. If more widely known and available, intentional communities would be the first choice of many, many people Good on you for organizing this effort.
I see you also chose Ning as an engine to expand the reach of your work. It is not a bad way to organize people, especially for the price.
Let's work on ways to help each other by cross-promotion, tabling together, sharing events and memberships, and basically just sewing the seeds of change cooperatively. We need to create not just a wave, but an onrushing tide.
