Korte, Patrick | United States
Chrysostomou, Jason | England
I live in London, U.K, where I work as a website designer with my brother at Glowbox Design. We aspire to implement pareconish ideals in our working lives. In 2005-6 I spent a year travelling around the world. I got to see the appalling global inequalities that exist with my own eyes which made me more determined to increase my involvement with social activism. My main organising efforts centr...
Olson, Andrew | United States
For these sixteen years of my life, I’ve slowly come to appreciate the extent of the middle-class bubble; blotting out with shining opacity the hardships of the less-well-to-do, the consequences of my own material affluence, what was being stolen not just from the faceless ‘them’, but from myself; in fact...
Lapinel, Elliott | United States
I joined the Navy at age 19 in 2004, and left in june of 2008. My first goal in life was to play the piano, and I had planned on going to school for music when I left the Navy. When I left the Navy however, I felt an emptiness from what I felt was a lack of accomplishment, particularly my failure to graduate from a certain program in the Navy. (I also began popping a...
Roblin, Stephen | United States
I became political at a young age through my exposure to the daunting problems facing Baltimore city while playing basketball at a west side recreation council. In high school I was introduced to left activist/scholars such as Howard Zinn, Noam Chomsky and others, who provided satisfying answers to questions I had about my society’s allowance for such gross inequalities and injustices. ...

Klaschus, Dirk | Germany
I'm 40+ years old and living nearby Frankfurt a.M., Germany. I'm working on an alternative economic system, which is based on Parecon and can be put in practise relative easily. At the moment I'm trying to build up a citizens' movement in my hometown that will open up the first store to see if the concept is working. We are still in an early stage.

Below you can find a conventional style resumé - I have a mixed working background, mostly self-employed (since 1977) in several small business and organisation guises. The last 25 years has been land based as I have sought to intitiate ecological regeneration at home and abroad. I am using my generalist, self-reliant, artisan, ec...
Earp, Charley | United States
Utopian Longings Charley's Brief Autobiography For some reason, I always go back to the year of my birth, as if that explains something about my adult self. Nineteen sixty-three was the year that Martin Luther King, Jr. preached his famous "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington. Although just an infant, I imbibed something of that utopian spirit tha...

Tarver, Emma | United States
McGehee, Michael | United States
Kurowski, Mark | United States
It's good to be back, so to speak! In the early 90's I was a beginner activist, and I was a member of ZBBS for its first couple years (it started in 12/93, right?). Then I got busy in life and lost my way. A big kick in the a** woke me up, and I'd like to be a dedicated activist for the next 40 years or so....
H, Joe | United Kingdom
(NB: The reason that I look sombre in the photo is not because I am considering the ills of the world, but because I am concentrating on playing dominoes.) I was born and grew up in South London, but because of my job as a research scientist I am currently working in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My current interests in public affairs are to catch up on some reading about globalis...
Evans, Mark | England
These things probably tell you something about me - I got my initial education in social justice listening to Bob Marley and the Wailers as a teenager, then in my late 20's reading Chomsky which led me to Z. I identify with the humanist world view. My favouite comedian is John Shuttleworth. I enjoy all kinds of "roots" music including folk, reggae, bl...

Help with Searching
The ZSearch facilities are powerful and extensive. They can be userd in diverse ways, all from the top Search Page. We have also, however, ueed them ourselves to provide particular focused searches. This page is an example.
In the filtering area you see that it comes with a default choice for account type. That means it is looking for Wrtiers or Sustainers, as noted. If you change the filter, for example, of course you will be searching amoung a different constituency.
You can also put in a name, or a locale to filter your find list further. You can also select a Group and see members who are Sustainers or Writers, or even from some locale, etc.
Of course the locale filter only works for people who have taken the time to enter their locale...so if you don't find many folks, it doesn't mean that they don't exist in the system. Instead, it could be they haven't entered where they are from....
So, in summary, sarch users by account type such as writer or sutainer, by first name, last name, by interest (where again, this only works for folks who entered one), group, or by location. Fill out your chosen feilds and then click the search button. Choose from among the results disaplayed or reset your search to start over.
