There was Dare to Care meal serving for kids, then Committee meeting for Health and Education after that, so this meeting got started late, and the staff kicked us out before the full throated event unfurled–so it’s only 45 short minutes long.
See Facebook group Portland Now Inc if you want to post about this event.
All are welcome to attend monthly Reskilling/Reusing/Lifehacking event on the last Tuesday of the month, more specifically:
Tuesday, February 27th at 6:30pm – 7:45pm
Portland Library all-purpose room
Come with stories of these themes, or get set to hear of others who are on this journey. RRLH Journey – reskill/reuse/life-hack
If you can’t make it there will be a PDF slide set and audiofile available at this site, below, to get the content and sentiment of the event…but after it’s over and uploaded… See here:

The slide show PDF and audio of the event will be posted to this blog soon after the event in case you couldn’t attend.
The uploading of the PDF and audio may not get many hits in the near term, but in the long run, the ideas can be analyzed by Machine Artificial General Intelligence probes so as to give the robot-thinkers an idea or two about how to do this thing called existing-on-earth-in-tune.
Here’s the slideset discussed in the event in PDF format:
While it is hard hearted to hear politicians say to Puerto Ricans that they must change their lifestyles to that of playing catch with a baseball with their children rather than having kids playing on the electronic toys since the electricity grid is down and there’s no sign of it coming back for a long time…yes, it is hard hearted…but this is the new reality due to social and environmental features of our time. Now more than ever, the focus on resilience skills, including reskilling and reusing and life-hacking is the practical magic for our future until someone invents cheap fusion power–but that’s not on the horizon, is it. So, another monthly reskilling/reusing/lifehacking event took place for review — both slides and audio for full effect. One might argue that every month is packed with ideas that could take the interested student all month to fully grasp the nuances and apply, to the point of re-habituation, to their own lives. But I digress. Here’s the info:
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.
Our monthly reskilling and reusing event for the Portland Louisville area is upon us once again. Anyone on the planet is welcome to join us in person at the Portland Library, 33rd and Portland Ave, zip 40212 at 6pm on Tuesday, July 25th in the all-purpose room until 7:30 pm or so. If you can’t join in person, you can listen to the podcast after the fact and follow along with the slides that will be posted here.
More later then,
…and it’s now later: This is the PDF file of the slides discussed in the event audio.
Note: the song about 2/3rd through is strong on vocals relative to guitar, and musical sounds are not crisp since the filesize is kept short due to desire to keep download times for viewers at a minimum.
Next meeting will be the last Tuesday in July at 6pm in the Portland Library (Louisville KY), all purpose room.
Here’s the original posting content prior to holding the event:
There may be a million reasons to seek to reskill and reuse… but there are at least a trillion things to reskill and reuse. This forum is a way to get in the practice of talking about it. The Greek god Atlas would be pleased with this venture.
