News for a Synergic Earth [via Tom, in conversation], a weblog tracking and cataloguing information about the future of planet plus ecology plus humanity. Sounds like the noösphere to me [humanity as force on geological scale; the merging of it with environment]. And another loopback to current preoccupations: they call themselves time binders. Very General Semantics, an understanding of the unique position humans hold as being able to understand reality within the context of time.
SynEarth also archive a lot of literature including a pointer to the book Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth by R Buckminster Fuller which I'll already been meaning to read (the Buckminster Fuller Institute archives yet more information), and many more which look equally interesting.
