There are a bunch of bio’s about me out there. My personal fav is:
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. 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 12 years.
And he was one of the principal organizers of the failed Villages in the Sky Air festival in the Ozark mountains.
[For the record, only the first sentence of this bio is fictitious]
One of the more comprehensive (tho not objective) bios is the one which was rejected by wikipedia it begins with:
At Protest at Temelin Nuclear Power Plant, Czech Republic 1996.
For me the three rules of organizing are:
1) Don’t get stuck
2) Don’t overwork the problem
3) Find Allies
