The 2011 Buckminster Fuller Challenge

The Sphere College Entry for the 2011 Buckminster Fuller Challenge is now available online, along with all the other entries. Please take a moment to visit the site! (Make sure to click on “Read More”.)

From the Buckminster Fuller Institute website:

“The IDEA INDEX 1.0 is a searchable database of incredible ideas submitted by design pioneers and social innovators from all over the world”, commented Elizabeth Thompson, BFI’s Executive Director. “One project wins the Challenge, but many of the entries are very worthy of support and attention. It is our hope that in publishing this work on-line, we can develop interest in, and support for comprehensive approaches to addressing our critical issues.”

Another Take

How fun! The winner of the Sphere College Creative Writing Contest 2011, Jessica Perhaps Portia Epp, has made available her own version of her winning entry. You can find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFOvp91P4cM. Enjoy!

For reference, the one we made is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=so7xUSTw6vg. IMHO, it’s interesting to compare the two versions.
