If you love them set them free!

I've decided that inside my head is not a good place for all the ideas, observations, frustrations, and inspirations that occur to me. Although they do slosh around in there and occasionally spawn some useful insights, I'm thinking that they will be far more useful if I give them a little fresh air.

So, this blog is intended to be a place where I can write down some of my thoughts and, hopefully in collaboration with others, shape them into useful ideas that can help make the world a better place. Expect half-baked ideas, unpolished writing and contradictions. I will share some strong opionions but I enjoy being challenged and will always reserve the right to change my mind!

I intend to write about the challenges of international development, humanitarian assistance and social, economic, political, technological and environmental sustainability. Some ideas will relate to very specific problems I'm working on for my clients in humanitarian organizations while others will relate broader systemic factors affecting issues like poverty, health, human rights and the environment. I'm always trying improve my understanding of the systemic and complex nature of these problems so that we can identify powerful leverage points for change.

If you find any of my posts interesting and feel you can build on some of the ideas presented please feel free to share your thoughts in a comment.
