About the Editor and Publisher, Jason Harris:
If asked, Jason Harris would call himself a 'ground level futurist'. In 1980 as a third grader he worked on his first sustainable project, a Solar oven made out of shoe box, black paint, aluminum foil and plexiglass. While his early influences were Buckminster Fuller and Frank Lloyd Wright, Jason later gravitated towards writing, attending Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. His work was published in the Catalyst Literary Journal and later in Black Enterprise Magazine. Jason worked various odd jobs to support himself until he turned down a mailroom job to become a Junior Network Administrator for a San Francisco based employment agency.
Jason has spent the last 15 years working in the IT industry, but is also actively engaged in various community organizations. Jason co-founded the Baltimore chapter of the International Capoeira Angola Foundation, a cultural arts group that teaches and propagates the martial art Capoeira Angola. His artwork was featured in September 2009 in a solo show entitled, 'Berimbonic'.
New Futurism is Jason's vehicle for media based projects, the first of which is Redlines: Baltimore 2028, a Speculative Fiction anthology featuring local writers. Jason is currently working on a novel and a multimedia project based on his March 2012 trip to Gaviotas, a sustainable eco-village in Colombia.
