Let me suggest two books. First: Cradle to Cradle: remaking the way we make things http://www.amazon.com/Cradle-Remaking-Way-Make-Things/dp/0865475873/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1291751851&sr=1-2 The authors present a manifesto calling for a new industrial revolution, one that would render both traditional manufacturing and traditional environmentalism obsolete. The ideas fit well with resilient communities and local production. This is relatively easy read. Second: Human Ecology: A Theoretical Essay http://www.amazon.com/Human-Ecology-Theoretical-Original-Paperback/dp/0226319849/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1291750715&sr=1-4 This is a short book that should be read slowly. Take your time and think about each chapter before going on to the next. Focused on the interaction between society and environment, human ecology is an attempt to deal holistically with the phenomenon of human organization. This may provide valuable insights for structuring resilient communities.
Forbs (of all places) has a interview that is worth looking at: http://www.forbes.com/2010/11/29/julian-assange-wikileaks-business-media-assange_lander.html Wiki Leaks is planning a release on a major US bank in Jan 2011. (that will help their reputation, with me at least)
So Chris are you using FRET to get only information out of your system? Or is your plan to use FRET to get both information out and conditionally put energy into your system?
