I'm 28, originally grew up in Brussels.
I speak fluent Dutch, English and French, and manage with German,
lived almost all over europe, living on the road for 5 years.
I relate deeply to such situation as mentionned by the edgeryder presentation.
I am already fully engaged ( voluntarily ) in community building and emergent collaboration for alternatives viable systems.
A post I wrote after several years on the road
despite taking lifestyle decisions to further shared reality creation.
I also wrote : http://sharewiki.org/en/Beyond_Road_Burn_Out
and, in 2007
I am currently on social benefits, yet still very edgy.
I may go back on the road at some point.
I realize that, for me not to burn out, I want to connect with a tribe with which it can be shared. ( see projects )
