Oh what a wonderful world, lovely reminder video from the #biomimicry MOOC on Canvas.
"Morgan Freeman narrates the greatest story of our generation - the
story of the human journey at this critical moment in time. Of all the
stories to belong to, this is the story to be a part of. Don't watch it
from the sidelines. Don't wait for the experts to figure it out. Ask
yourself: how can I become one of the weavers of the story? It's a...
tapestry with 7 billion threads. What contribution do I want to make?
If you're not yet contributing to this story in some way, ask yourself
why not? This is a story for everyone." http://youtu.be/rRSxQBy2sDY

Check out this fascinating example of bio-assisted technology. Mediated Matter Group from MIT explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication in architecture:
Read Tamsin's awesome article. She is an evolutionary biologist writing about biomimicry for organizational change. How can our human organizations can mimic super collaborators like ants and honeybees? She is trying out Kickstarter as a way to leverage collective intelligence to fund the finishing touches (you can pre-order here). Thanks for reading and your support!

The Bay Area Biomimicry Network is swarming again! Join us on April 23 to connect with fellow biomimicry enthusiasts and exercise our creative synapses. As always, colleagues and friends are encouraged to join....
April ushers in the transformative days of spring, and with it, brings a metamorphosing Bay Area Biomimicry Network. Join us to learn about our vision for developing a Network capable of impacting and effecting the Bay Area more than ever before. Ready to move beyond simple advocacy of Biomimicry? Find out what it will take to make the Bay Area a more well-adapting region, focusing on innovating our infrastructure, food, water, and energy systems.
Ray Lucchesi will present how building collaborative relationships and integrated processes results in transformational outcomes for human and ecological systems. He will describe how building social, human, and natural capital, using Biomimicry and living systems to frame conversations, can catalyze innovation to make the Bay Area a more well-adapting region.
We hope you can join us for this special Swarm at the DLA Piper office.
The DLA Piper buiding is located at 555 Mission Street, Suite 2400 between 1st St and 2nd St, one block from the Montgomery St BART station.
Public parking is available at the 5th & Mission St. parking garage.
Bike parking is also available at the west end of the 5th & Mission garage.
