[GSBN] Libraries can still burn

Dear GSBNers —

Some of you know that the ancient library of Alexandria — the greatest collection of knowledge ever, at that time — was burned, with a loss of everything in it.

In today’s world it can happen even faster, as when a hacker commandeers your website and then you find that your host wasn’t actually backing up and then . . . poof!  Gone.

So it has gone with the BuildWell Source, the library we have been slowly raising online so that y’all could have easy access to technical and other information when you need it.  About 150 people, like many of you, have used it and contributed useful stuff for everyone’s benefit, and we thank you.  And we’re very sorry, it has gone Poof.

We are rebuilding that site as fast as we can, but it will take a while.  (Ditto Ecological Building Network, bruce-king.com and Green Building Press.)  I’ll let you know when it’s back up, and hopefully we can together build an even better resource to serve the growth and effective practice of natural building.

A major bummer, for sure, but in the end a “first world problem” — no one is getting shot or starved or abused.

I feel very grateful to be able to work with y’all.
