The Intelligent Optimist, formerly known as Ode, presents some interesting insights on ‘sustainability’ and ‘smart communities’ from a somewhat different perspective in an article by Andre Tolve entitled “Knock on Wood”.

A brief item introducing the article says, “Legendary ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ keyboardist Chuck Leavell has a few ideas about how to help communities become smarter, stronger and more sustainable.
