Bios

There are a bunch of bio’s about me out there.  My personal fav is:

Can we make arrest actions look good ?

North Anna 2008 protest glamor shot

Paxus Calta was abandoned by his wolf parents and raised by liberals in the suburbs of Boston. He has hitchhiked on sailboats across the Pacific, danced atop Russian tanks before Yeltsin made it fashionable, smuggled Tibetan monks across the Himalayas, worked on the North Slope of Alaska for a nasty oil company. He also worked on an ocean engineering project in Hawaii that laid power cable on the ocean floor and dispatched submarines. For 7 years he fought nuclear power plants in eastern Europe. He taught a class on how to design revolutions at an alternative high school. Calta identifies as an anarchist, a polyamorist, a memeticist and a funologist.  He has been arrested for crimes of conscience in 12 countries on three continents and is one of two dads of Willow Falcon Star born on Valentines Day 2002. He suffers from terminal immodesty and an inflamed funny bone. He has lived at Twin Oaks Community for 15 years.  In 2013 he became a dual member with Acorn Community.  

He was one of the principal organizers for the Loud Love gathering in 2013

One of the more comprehensive (tho not objective) bios is the one which was rejected by wikipedia it begins with:


Paxus Calta is a memeticist, funologist, political activist and festival organizer living in the United States. Calta attained some prominence beginning in the 1980s as an anti-nuclear power campaigner in eastern Europe and the U.S. He is a member of Twin Oaks Community in Virginia, in the southeast U.S., where he has lived since 1998, and is also an active proponent of polyamory, the idea that consenting adults can honestly practice multiple simultaneous romantic relationships.
In 2004, he wrote a chapter of the book The Impossible Will Take a Little While (compiled by Paul Rogat Loeb, in which he detailed a successful campaign to overthrow the Bulgarian government launched by an 18-year old [1]. He remains active in contemporary movements against nuclear power and in memetic design.
He continues to develop the quasi-science of funologist and co-authored the personal growth system called co-empowerment. Since 2007 he has been active in the wiki-book project Contagious Tales and the Honest Seduction and High Romance workshop series. In late 2008, he started working with on the Third Generation Social Networking site Bio.cz
In 2009, he helped start the Villages in the Sky project which is building tree houses and wind turbines at intentional communities, with the intention of spawning new communities.  This project failed catastrophically, when East Wind voted to pull the lease on the festival site land.  No reason was given by East Wind for this choice.

For me the three rules of organizing are:

1) Don’t get stuck

2) Don’t overwork the problem

3) Find Allies
