This just in from the enigmatic Miquael Gaio, a self-described "archetypal engineer" with whom I've attended Erik Davis' "Altered State", a class on California spirituality:
Human beings are currently causing the greatest mass extinction of species since the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. If present trends continue one half of all species of life on earth will be extinct in 100 years.
6X is a community action group formed for the purpose of increasing public awareness of the current global mass extinction of species. 6X was founded by faculty and students at the California Institute of Integral Studies (http://www.ciis.edu), operates under the auspices of the institute, and is open to all concerned public citizens. The formation of 6X was catalyzed by the work of CIIS faculty member David Ulansey, PhD., and his website, http://www.massextinction.net.
We are currently looking for eco-conscious designers and developers to
participate in producing web-based aspects of a multi-tiered media
project to disseminate information of the mass extinction of species to
the general public. We are seeking web-savvy people who are willing to
either volunteer resources, or work at in-kind or moderate rates, with
specialty skills in the following areas:
- Graphic Design (Print and/or Web)
- Flash Design / ActionScript Programming
- Content Writing / Editing
- Data Base Development / Management (MySQL)
- PHP programming
- Content Management Systems
- Community Forums / Mailing Lists
- Streaming Media
If you are interested in being involved, and would like to know more, email (m AT transcendigital DOT org) a description of your skills, your standard rate, and a moderated rate that you could contribute toward the project.
Please forward this email to any one who may be interested.
