David McConville is the producer of this video announcing the Buckminster Fuller Challenge:


The Buckminster Fuller Challenge – SEE THE MOVIE! from Buckminster Fuller Institute on Vimeo.

Greetings Design Revolutionaries!

Bucky had it right. “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

That’s why we’re awarding a $100,000 prize each year for comprehensive solutions that radically advance human well-being and ecosystem health. The 2008 prize will be conferred June 23rd in NYC.

STEP UP TO THE BUCKMINSTER FULLER CHALLENGE.
JOIN THE VANGUARD OF THE DESIGN REVOLUTION.

The 2009 Challenge begins this Fall. Stay tuned…

On a somewhat related note, I’m just back from hearing Hodding Carter introduce Hodding Carter (father appropriately introducing son on Father’s Day) as author of several books most recently of Off the Deep End about getting into competitive shape for Olympic swimming events at age 41 – 45. (Not to be confused with the Weird Al CD by the same name).
