Howard SilvermanHello. Welcome.

In recent years, a lot of my energies have been on learning, writing, and teaching about systems+design+futures. I developed curriculum for systems and futures courses in the Collaborative Design MFA program at Pacific Northwest College of Art and taught several years in the ITP program at NYU. Now I’m with the MA in Sustainable Design program at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

From 1999 t0 2012 I worked with Portland, Oregon-based Ecotrust, starting as webmaster and ending up as senior writer and analyst.

I’m currently a trustee of the American Society for Cybernetics and a past board member of the International Society for the Systems Sciences.
