About Ariadne Systems



Founded in 2022 by Simon Forman as a vehicle for service and self-expression, Ariadne Systems is a mutual-benefit nonprofit corporation that provides its members with options for a ecologically harmonious and economically profitable lifestyle.

When I was a kid in high school I found my parents' copy of the Next Whole Earth Catalog which was a kind of hippie how-to guide from the 70's. In it I learned about people like Christopher Alexander, Bucky Fuller, and Bill Mollison, and I began to see, or think that I saw, a better world, a world where humans and nature were in harmony, a world that was fun, where the living was easy.

Ariadne Systems is my attempt to make this world a reality and share it with others.
