Life is short — take time to learn to reskill and reuse it

Reskilling and ReUsing and LifeHack Meet Space Event

Come gather ’round people, wherever you are from –the free, open to the public reskilling/reusing/lifehack event is Tuesday, August 29th at 6pm at the Portland Public Library at 33rd and Portland Ave/Northwestern Pkwy.  As we do every last-Tuesday of the month until 7:30pm, we will meet, greet, converse in the all-purpose room in the lower level of the library.  This is an opportunity to share a passion for growing in wisdom about what practical things we can do about anything we can think of.  This is a lifestyle thing, so expect parts of real-life to be in attendance.  Share your tools, gadgets, word-spins, or feelings–and listen to others who want to do the same.  The more resilient and sustainable, the better, of course–since it’s so much fun to pretend that maybe WalMart might not exist some day… ahem.


Here’s the slideset in PDF:

Here’s the laptop recording, which is bigger (ca 70MB) and not as audible:
