On the State of the Awesome 2010: A Reportpage 3
Greetings! As I write this from the headquarters of AF San Francisco, The Awesome Foundationfor the Arts and Sciences is advancing at a rate that’s difficult to take calmly. Within the courseof a year and a half,what began as a small group of trustees in Boston has spread into an inter-national alliance of chapters dedicated to sustaining and promoting the interest of Awesomenessin the universe. We’ve funded things diverse as community farming initiatives, robotic lamps,and cotton candy weaponry to giant hammocks, emergency cell phone infrastructures, and anattempt to put the stars back into London’s night sky.Say what you might, that’s at least dinosaur-with-a-jetpack levels of awesome.As the Awesome Foundation grows, we’ve consistently developed new mechanisms for dealingwith the challenges of scale while maintaining the advantages of staying true to the rule of beingflexible, simple, and decentralized.One of our persistent problems remains one of information. There’s a ton of fantastic and interesting things going on of interest to chapters generally, but nogood aggregation (and it’s undoubtedly a pain to keep up by digging through the mountains ofe-mail that cross through the trustees list).As we approach the end of 2010, AF-SF is making a first attempt at solving this problem byissuing a report that succinctly captures the current state of the Awesome worldwide. This will bethe first in a series of regular reports we plan to compile and make to the Awesome Foundationcommunity. We hope it will be of help to chapters generally, and encourage reports from otherquarters and about other topics, as well.So, by authorization and seal of the Office of the Dean of Awesome (AF-SF) Jesse Taggert, thisreport -- “On the State of the Awesome” -- is submitted respectfully for the consideration of themicro-trustees and Deans of Awesome worldwide.All the Best,Tim Hwang,AF-SF, 2nd Amit Gupta Chair for Higher Awesome StudiesAF-Boston, 1st Tim Hwang Chair for Higher Awesome Studies (ret.)
