"I so appreciate the 10 working principals that the authors lay out for open space collaborative new media: especially how media teams can collaborate, test, adapt, and reconfigure their horizontal decision-making processes, and how to shift focus away from the finished product to a more responsive process."

"This film poignantly conveys the fundamental role of food in our lives, far beyond just physical health effects, extending to matters of choice, respect, and belonging. It invokes the bold wisdom of Margaret Mead- that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world, or at least their corner of it. And it reminds us that we all have skin in this game- the skin of our children. It is moving and motivating, practical and philosophical, inspirational- and aspirational. I recommend it highly."
