It has brought it to my attention that my friend Theron is trying to raise money to spread the knowledge of sustainability with Permacutlure. If you are unfamiliar with Permacutlure, it ecological design, ecological engineering, and environmental design that develops sustainable architecture and self-maintained agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.
A little bit about Theron, He is a Permaculture enthusiast who is trying to continue his trip around the world, teaching the whole world how to become sustainable through Permaculture and other techniques. He has perfected this through the education and experience of many local Austin groups and businesses such as Gardens of the Ancients and Community Cultivators .
Currently Theron and his group are seeking donations you can click here to find the donation page. If you can only donate $10, it will be a big help! $20 is better! $200 is fantastic! Check out the donation page, you receive a gift for each incremental donation! To read more about the group he is working with now and what they are doing you can go to http://eco-pioneers.org/ .
Thank you for reading and hopefully supporting a good cause.

On the surface simple app tag lined “4 million songs on Spotify have never been played. Not even once. Let’s change that.” Like it says they have never been played. The site http://www.forgotify.com/ allows you to be the first person to discover a song and help propel it into the main stream or disregard it entirely. It overall just gives you a chance to listen to the unheard music of Spotify. I admittedly skipped the first song when I heard loud, sharp opera music (not really a fan). The second song I quite enjoyed Silver Cloud by The Trio Featuring John Surman. Not really familiar with the band, but I am familiar with the style of jazz. So I added into my regular playlist. Seems like could be a lot of hit and miss, but the idea is definitely novel and interesting at the same time. I can see spending a good week of time to using this and exploring the unplayed of Spotify.

So my hosting server decided to go out of busy and only allowed access to my server for about 2 hours before they got shut down. I got my site but lost the db, so the site was useless. So starting to build from scratch.
