so taking into consideration some of the suggestions given to us, i've come up with some themes for us to discuss:
- elements of love and change
- visions after tomorrow
- return of the wonder/ful
- without borders
- food for liberation
- live well and grow
i was thinking of lauren's suggestion of something more proactive and appealing than a series of old white business men.
let me know what ya'll think.
also, folks need to think of a name for the indy arts site so we can go public soon. nik sent some suggestions.

> hey folks,
> that issue of the ecologist was meant to be just one information source for a much larger, much-more detailed map. we've been
discussing this idea on and off for nearly two years now. everyone thinks it would be a hot seller. we have poster companies interested
in it. the reason we haven't done it is cost--at least $3,000.

and corporate energy interests, there is remarkable overlap. the ecologist map barely scratches the surface.

> a "map" of the human body showing where toxic substances reside, the industrial sources and the disorders they cause;
> a poster breaking down the typical fast-food meal, showing all the paths and inputs from oil, water, genetic engineering, habitat
destruction and agri-business to your happy meal;
> and a chart detailing the genealogy of marxist-leninism parties in america.
> i think all of these would be big sellers and would give us a large line of merchandise.
