Networked societies like ants, bees, and fungi scale their vast organizations differently than we do––by pooling diverse and independent experiences to create rich hotspots of abundance. We can do it too, and Teeming will show us how.

A Book and a Movie...

Hello my favorite Kickstarter supporters!

This is a juicy update--things are picking up steam over here. We have a March 2017 publication date, and the link for Teeming is on Amazon. The publisher tells me they already have 1500 preorders in the US, and more internationally. This is good... Barnes and Noble picked it up as well, which is apparently a rare and wonderful thing! 

 

We're fine-tuning the copy edit, and as soon as we have the Acknowledgments embedded, you will receive your long-awaited e-book! (I know you want to wait for that, because you're in it).

Meanwhile, we launched the new website yesterday. Head over to DrTamsin.com and check it out! You can subscribe to my newsletter, and get a free copy of "How Would Nature Elect a President?" which Swiss economist Jamie Brown says "is the best election analysis I've read." (thanks Jamie!) PS. I don't mention any names in it and it's blissfully non-partisan. You can also see all our amazing endorsements, including Janine Benyus and Dayna Baumeister from Biomimicry 3.8, primatologist Frans deWaal, Earth Day Founder Denis Hayes, and Huffington Post Editor-at-Large Zem Joaquin!

Here is my 18-minute TED-style video from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's annual Disruptive Innovation Festival, What can Superorganisms teach us about Collective Intelligence? It's shot in one of my favorite places––the breathtakingly beautiful Anza Borrego Desert! 

Enjoy, and THANK YOU again for your wonderful support. Without your help I would never have made it this far!

Onward!

Tamsin
