Welcome (And oh yes, work in progress)

    Dear Eric,
    Whenever I read or see your work, “amazing” is what comes to my mind! How do you do it? What drives you? I guess what gatnet and other such fora need is for you to share the “secret” of being able to get so much done…almost single handedly.

  2. Thanks for those very kind words Nite. Coming from someone who works as hard and smart on our common gender agenda as you they mean a lot.

    Actually what I am doing here is to share my rather long experience with creating and helping to run “knowledge and communications platforms” on socio-environmental issues just as this. Once the platform is set up, fined tuned and actually working, it is the friends, collaborators and people who care who pitch in and together put it to work. At that point I can step to the sidelines and join and participate like everyone else. Team work!
