Hi! My name is Greg Bloom, and I am currently a 'research resident' through Provisions Library's COPY RIGHTS program. In this capacity, I'll be spearheading the District Commons initiative. (This is a 'seed and cede' experiment; in other words, my leadership is short-term, and the challenge will be to establish a sustainable community around the project!)
I've worked here in DC at Bread for the City, and helped launch the Save Our Safety Net Campaign, the DC Food For All, and the Broadband Bridge projects. I believe that our best possible future is one with abundant resources that are shared (like this site!), local institutions that are democratically governed, and opportunities for everyone to benefit from participation in the betterment of their community.
You can contact me at greg [dot] bloom [at] gmail [dot] com.
