It's hard to believe that the first quarter of 2014 is over. Yet, spring is definitely in the air as April showers seem to have come early here in Oakland.
On Sunday we released the beta version of our Android app – If you have become a faithful reader of our blog and have been waiting to be able to access the magazine on your Android tablet – the wait is over! Download our free app from the Google Play Store and send us your ideas and feedback. We'd love to hear from you.
Sunday also found us mentioned in a San Francisco Chronicle article about the tech scene in Oakland. Although most of our team lives in other cities (and countries), Oakland has been a great place to start launch this business. If you live in the Bay Area, do consider joining us for dinner on a Wednesday night.
Along with the release of our Android app, Issue no. 5, is out on April 1st. In this issue we explore some of the spaces which we may overlook in our urban landscape and consider ways to conserve water and energy while contributing to more efficient cities.
Although it can be deeply rewarding to escape the city from time to time, much of the world’s population lives in dense urban environments and will continue to do so. Therefore, it is wise to consider how we choose to live within these environments.
In recent months, my team and I have been navigating the joys of independent publishing and all the ebbs and flows that accompany a new venture. For our paucity in publishing, I apologize. We are so grateful that you have remained part of our collective efforts to build a better tomorrow and look forward to all we will learn and do together in 2014.
Interested in learning more about why we do what we do? Check out this video or this post on why choices matter. As we journey through 2014, I invite you to contact us so that we may collaborate to find ways to live well and do good.
Get in touch with your ideas. We’d love to hear from you.
