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.
Integration and collaboration
For a successful Circular Economy we need collaboration. Not collaboration in the "evil corporations working together to avoid market regulations on completion, exploiting customers with unfair pricing and generally colluding in their dastardly master plans" kind of way.
