What to expect from Ideatransform


With Ideatransform kicking in in less than 5 hours, I want to write down what I expect from the meeting

  • I expect a lot of fun. Enjoying the WE is one of my goal
  • I expect to meet a lot of interesting people, among developers, designers, doers and mentors
  • I also would like to pitch the SustainableSouk idea, build a team and create a first MVC, in the classic LeanStartup way.

Although looking for a Co-founder is always a tricky business, and going solo is a possibility, I would like to build this project in a super open and easy way.

The excitement is high, let’s see how it rolls!

Is eating local possible?

Given to the advance of peak oil, changing to a more sustainable living is becoming a must from a maybe. In this view, the transition movement is doing pretty well, and here in Cambridge the Transition Cambridge movement is also gaining traction. A lot of actions, completely grassroot, are under taking place and getting recognised. Check out for example the last post about growing spaces.

A very braveinitiativeis been carried on by 6 people of the Cambridge Carbon Footprint, where they decided to try to eat local. I think it’s very good idea and they are blogging about it here.

On the same note, an initiative to make local food easier to spot is undergoing and I’m personally working on it. It’s called sustainablesouk.com, and you can stay tuned it either subscribing to the form, or just keeping in touch to be sure to know when we are going to give it a kick 🙂
