I (Bill Ellis) am a physicist, futurist, farmer, living in the house is was
born in in a small Maine town (1000) in the lake, mountin forest, region on
the Canadian border.

        My first duo decade I gathered an education with stops in Maine,
Alaska, Hawaii, British Columbia and Edingurgh.  The second 20 years were
wandering jobs with time in Ethiopia, Nepal, George Mason U, U of VT and
Washington D.C.

for the National Science Foundation, on "The Hill," Unesco (in Paris), The
World Bank (Washington), and the Department of Commerce Science program.

damage of the SST.  I "retired" from Washington as unpaid

Alternatives and Transformation).
