A new kind of home builder

I really enjoyed getting out of the Web 2.0 world and talking with an architect in San Francisco who has built a new company, CleverHomes, to build new kinds of homes. He’s trying to build “green Legos for adults.”

Thanks to Jeremiah Owyang for introducing me to CleverHomes and running camera for me too. The discussion is fascinating to hear Toby Long talk about the various technological changes that are sweeping (or about to sweep) through the home building world.

    Would have been great if you could have been on-site to see how they’re using the innovation.

  3. I have been hoping for about a year that this will start to be applied/developed in Second Life. It is simple, it ties back into the rest of life and awareness-raising, and would help to gauge interest of the community in sl in this work. This is great.
