      Keith, came across your website when doing some research on sustainable developments and read your post about Steve Case’s development down in Costa Rica. Would like to engage you in a dialogue about our new project – Happy New Year, David

    2. Keith R Says:

      David, I am always open to dialogue, especially when a project looks as interesting and unusual as yours. Let’s talk.
      Happy New Year,
      Keith R

      Estimado Keith- I was doing research on the Caribbean Challenge and arived at el blog de los Temas. I enjoy the blog and am glad to have found it. I currently work for TNC and am preparing for a meeting in Miami where we will be refining our conservation strategies and developing an implementation plan for the Challenge.

      I am a reporter for the radio program The Green Planet Monitor. I am searching for potential stories on development issues in Medellin, Colombia. Specifically I am looking for development projects involving Canadian NGO’s. I wanted to ask for you assistance. Please let me know if you can suggest any names of organizations, or stories I should consider.

      Dear Keith,
      I am an Italian architect and urbanist living and working in Rotterdam NL, where I founded a few years ago my office, NAUTA architecture & research.
      While making some research on tourism developments in the world, I came across your interesting blog, where I found precious information about sustainable tourism.

      I am currently writing a book called \Beyond Luxury\, which will talk about the evolution through history of tourism facilities and resorts.
      I will focus on the change of ideology and goals, bases of the design of those complexes since Roman time till nowadays.

      It is my interest to publish in the book some abstracts of your articles published on this blog, as critical issues to rise debate and further thinking over the development of the resorts.

      I would like to ask you how to handle the copyright issue over the text and of course, if you like, any opinion and suggestion over my story. I take the opportunity to thank you for the interesting and important information that I found on your blog, which became for me a very important base for part of the book content.

      Maurizio Scarciglia
