Scotty Ramirez on Permacities
"For over five years Scotty Ramirez has been promoting and helping set the stage for moving society towards a Natural-Law Economy. He is an urbaneer and has been studying permaculture and how it connects to urban design. He studied permaculture through the Permaculture Institute with Scott Pittman and Aquaponics through the Living Mandala school.
He is currently working with a team of programmers on an open-source Permacities game, which will be fun, interactive, and show people everything that would be involved for turning their 'undesigned' city into a planned city of abundance. As things progress he hopes to expand the games functionality into actually initiating projects in the built physical world. The game will eventually function not only as education for the players, but as a blueprint for that regions optimal designs."
