As a filmmaker, I have documented other social experiments, like Josh Harris' underground bunker in We Live in Public. Just as A TOTAL DISRUPTION is the flip side of that dark look at our future online (which is now), Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project is, in many ways, an ambitious, opverse look at bringing people together around technology - with a Buddha-like optimist at the center instead of a big-brother Oz behind the curtain. I think that's why I keep coming back. The bigger the project gets, the smaller and more like a community it feels - because as the ideas come off the famed wall of Post-its and go from being dreams to reality - so the founders become pillars of this community - invested in making it the greatest place on earth. Tony has assembled a team to bring the best and brightest creative entrepreneurs to Vegas, determined to build out a utopian community within a major urban center. It's the most fascinating and ambitious project I have ever witnessed, and I feel lucky to be documenting it as it unfolds.

For a start, people living in low-lying areas may benefit from standalone power supplies, like solar home systems. This has already been shown in areas of Bangladesh that were struck by cyclone Sidr in 2007, where solar home systems installed by Ashden winner Grameen Shakti maintained crucial phone communications and lighting when mains infrastructure had been destroyed.
It also makes sense to increase the use of local generation on electricity grids, and so reduce dependence on large coastal power stations. Sharing out generation between different locations cuts distribution losses and shares out risk. If the generation is from renewable sources like hydro, wind, solar PV or biomass, then it also cuts CO2 emission. “Local” can be at different scales, from solar PV on individual homes, as exemplified by Ashden 2013 winner WREN, up to community-scale wind farms such as those developed by 2007 winner Ecotricity.
