A Compendium of Useful Information

Version 1.1, July 13, 2011  -- July 2011 Update URLs

iPermie! How to permaculture your urban lifestyle.
A good-life design guide for Millennials, Boomers, and Generation X.

Strategies, tools, and techniques to help you navigate the cardinal threats
of peak oil, climate instability, economic irrationality, and political criminality.

An Almanac of  Useful Information and Permaculture Self-Study Guide.

14 sections, 248 chapters, 399,000 words.-- Only $1.99 as an ebook download. 
A variety of formats (PDF, Kindle, Android, Apple, Kobo, etc.) are linked for download at www.ipermie.net.

The purpose of this webpage is to provide people with the information they may need to successfully adapt to the looming threats of
peak energy, climate instability, economic irrationality, toxic politics, wars and violence. It is not a finished product, it is a work in progress,
and visitors are invited to help by suggesting new resources to add to these pages. If you were to save all of these web pages to your computer,
it would amount to more than 2 gigabytes of information.

If a url goes dark, please let us know at bob@bobwaldrop.net . If you can find the new url if it has moved, that would be helpful.
Suggestions are also welcome for additions, as there are several sections herein that need considerable additional resources.

Assigning some of these urls to a specific topic is a bit of a judgment call, as often a site or article could be classified in one of several ways.

NB: These free information sources may be on sites with various political, ideological, religious, cultural, or scientific world views/agendas.
Placing a link to the free useful information here does not indicate my support for any such agendas extraneous to the how-to information. 

I am not in a position to verify the accuracy or efficacy of any of the information linked to this page.

Readers use this information, or don't use this information, at their own risk. As we say in Oklahoma, "Y'all bon appetit, you hear?"

July 2011 Update

These links are all incorporated on this page, but they are also included as a separate page for those who are systematically downloading and archiving this info. 
In other words, if you've already downloaded and archived version 1.0 of the Compendium, all you have to do to add the new resources is to download the links on the update page. 
On the other hand. . . folks just now finding this page, will find it as the complete Version 1.1.
