for several years i have been singing the praises of the buckminster fuller challenge but i had yet to submit an entry until now. a $100,000 prize is awarded to a person or team who devises a simple, efficient solution to a complex problem facing society and our planet. bucky referred to such ideas as "trimtabs", named for the tiny rudder on a large ship that is ultimately responsible for precise steering. there's much more on my entry, entitled the synergetic omni-solution, at the buckminster fuller challenge idea index.
