But here’s what I believe it might just be called tomorrow, when the history books have been written, and the debates concluded: a Eudaimonic Revolution. A sweeping, historic transformation in what we imagine a good life to be, and how, why, where, and when we pursue it.

"An idea for next summer." →
The post that generated initial interest in Summer Commune from all the way back in June 10, 2011. heller: An idea for next summer. I was thinking about getting like one hundred cool young people to move to a small North American city for the summer. Move from Echo Park, Bushwick, The Mission, Wicker Park, Capitol Hill, or which ever neighborhood you are paying too much to live in to a...

Dear friend, I’ve been burning to tell you this, with the hopes that you will hear your own story in what I say and then you’ll skip off into the sunshine puppy rainbow of love with me. On paper, I am successful. I’m a graphic designer for a cool techy startup in Silicon Valley, I live in San Francisco, I regularly hang at NASA with really smart people. I have an iPhone...

telepathic paranoia: Summer Commune →
I gotta say, I’m weirdly excited about this. I’ve been a bit of a communerd for a while now — it’s the kind of thing I frequently fantasize about, and have even occasionally tried to enact. I love the spirit of intentional communities — of smart, creative people working together on projects big and small. of having people to consult and brainstorm and commiserate with in the middle of the night....
inquiring minds want to know
Who’s coming? Right now around 40 people have committed to attending for some part of the summer. Some are staying from June til August (like we are), and some are coming for only a week, a month, or a weekend. (A tentative calendar of events is coming soon.) Projects range from teaching Sanskrit to Communers to teaching playwriting to local kids. There’s a start up, a documentary,...

music in moscow
hot tips about the happening haps in Moscow have been pouring in over the F-book: Jon’s alley is where it’s at for live music. They have music most nights of the week and bring in a wide variety of bands, most of which are jam bands based loosely on blues and folk with various rock influences to spice it up. The place maintains a really friendly and warm atmosphere. They also have a...
gentrification vs. the search for a creative...
Thanks to The Awl, the word is out: Summer Commune is coming to Moscow, Idaho in June. Because we’re young (late 20s, early 30s), creative, restless, and like coffee—I guess—some have said that throwing a Summer Commune just sounds a lot like hipsters mad that Williamsburg is full. Because of hipsters (I have to sigh in exasperation before I can even type that word)—or the...
