Hi, I’m Barry. I founded HappyPorch in 2015 and I’m excited about the Circular Economy.
I believe that we (me, you, HappyPorch and society in general) need to do more than react to climate change and loss of biodiversity and all the other issues caused by our waste. Rather, we need to find ways to solve those issues AND improve life on our planet. There is a chance that, with Circular Economy approaches, we can contribute to these regenerative solutions.
Circular Wonderings is an exploration of the role of digital, software and technology in the Circular Economy. Exploration is the key word here. I write regularly, reflecting on my current thoughts and research. Expect typos, incomplete thoughts, varied rambling topics and (hopefully) a journey towards clearer understanding and insight.
This is a long and difficult journey! But it is, I think, a road worth travelling.
To join me on this journey subscribe to receive ad-hoc emails. I'd love to hear your thoughts or feedback, just subscribe and reply to any email.

I received this question: In one of your wonderings last week you wrote: "One conflict, that is bothering me a lot at the moment, is the challenges of tinkering around the edges of complex, international material flows. Are we at risk of rearranging deck chairs on the sinking ship? (IE are we really busy while having zero impact?)"
