100 Years From Now – Sallie Smith

Dana @ 6:50 PM | Filed under: General

Name:

Sallie Smith

Age:

Well you’re never suppsoed to tell your age when you’re a woman…

Where are you from:

Washington, D.C.

Where do you live:

Boulder, Colorado

Occupation:

I am a Neurologist.

100 Years from now what do you want to be remembered for:

First and foremost I want to be remembered as a wonderful friend that never let her friends down.  I want to be remembered for being a good family member and a good community member …

I would like to come up with some sort of treatment for one of the neurologic diseases that plague a lot of my patients but who knows in 100 years.  I think we are making a lot of strides in those realms.

I would like to have completed at least a play, a book, a poem that was my own creative expression.  (I have two sides, an artistic side and a scientific side and I’d like to make sure that both realize their potential.  It’s hard to do everything at once).

I would like to be able to say that I was able to maintain my integrity the entire time.  I’d like to be able to say that I didn’t let anybody down in my close circle of friends and my family.

In terms of medicine, I really always wanted to change how medicine is looked at from the perspective of integrating many different forms of medicine and the way they look at diagnosis, the way they look at the whole person and the way they look at treating the actual root cause rather than the symptoms and using my Western toolbox to actually bring a more traditional or indigenous sensibility to Western medicine without giving up the Western toolbox within that.

I have always envisioned people growing their own food and having these little farms in the city.  I think that now is the perfect time for me.  I worked in entertainment, but I love food, especially raw food.

So, in 100 Years from now if we’re not gone, I’d like to see people move toward raw food and move toward growing their own food instead of this globalized entity.  I would like to have been a part of that.  I feel like people are reconnecting with so many things and I feel like food is a great place to start the reconnection…

100 Years From Now – Johnny Sagan a.k.a. Snowy Wilderness

Dana @ 9:35 PM | Filed under: General

Name:

Johnny Sagan a.k.a. Snowy Wilderness

The reason for the “a.k.a. Snowy Wilderness” is that the ultimate idea for the name came from an alter ego character whose actually on the alter ego pocket square in the window.  “Snowy Wilderness”.  A simultaneouly rugged and refined mythomane;  a men’s fashion plate dandy-ish sort of fellow who was my alter ego for some years.

Age:

I am 30 years old.  I will be turning 31 on May 18, – 2011 the 31st anniversary of the eruption of Mount St. Helen’s.

Where are you from:

I like to just say I come from the North.  My life story spans Green Bay, Wisconsin, Blind River, Ontario, Madison, Wisconsin, Park Slope, Brooklyn , Evanston, Illinois a.k.a. Heaven-ston (Heaven-ston is our Yale).  And then I went to college at The London School of Economics in London England and now, like a salmon returning to the pool where it was spawned, I have returned to Park Slope, Brooklyn…(I actually live in Crown Heights.  I’m about to move to Flatbush,  my ultimate place of power that perfectly balances man and nature on the planet.  Culture and commerce.  Snowy Wilderness.

Where do you live:

I live in Crown Heights on President Street.  I am getting ready, on June 1st in Sha la la (word to the house of knowledge), to move to Hawthorne Street in Flatbush between Flatbush and Bedford with my lovely girlfriend Emma Zurer, Brooklyn’s Lady Liberty.  Shout out to her…

Occupation:

Fundamentally I am a writer and my number one back up make-money-to-pay-the-rent-job is freelance transcribing for a number of academic institutes in New York City, chief among them The Social Science Research Counsel.  I am also a Fashion Designer and Gallerist with Snowy Wilderness.

My word of inspiration to all of the young people flocking to Brooklyn:

In the mean times, in-between times and the lean times, I do whatever it takes and work whatever job is necessary to survive in New York.

100 Years from now what do you want to be remembered for:

What I would most like to be remembered for 100 Years from now is probably being one of the people who helped the children of the Baby Boomers attain their adulthood after the ultra extended imperium of those born in the aftermath of World War II and who helped turned the tide of chaos and misery that is threatening to engulf us now.  And I’d like tp do that through such activites as running a communitarian boutique and gallery like Snowy Wilderness.

100 Years from now what do you want to be remembered for:

I want to be remembered for helping games in education get to a point where there are effective in a scientifically validated manner to help our very technologically savvy youth get educated in a way that is not based in a 19th Century educational model.
