Ernest Callenbach died just a few days ago at age 82. He was an admirer of Paolo Soleri and of Arcosanti. He died April 16. of cancer at his home in Berkeley CA.

I first met him back in 1981 when he and I were paired in a keynote dialogue at a statewide conference of gifted high school students from throughout California. He spoke of the ideas underlying his famous book, Ecotopia, I of the ideas underlying our famous project Arcosanti. His book Ecotopia was written in 1975.

This past August we were connected again by Richard Register at the 9th Ecocoties World Congress in Montreal. Here’s his last bit of writing, something that was found on his computer after his recent death.
