"Generative ideas emerge from joint thinking, from significant conversations, and from sustained, shared struggles to achieve new insights from partners in thought."

Free Soil is grateful to all who visited this blog and to the many wonderful projects that emerged from its contributors. While we continue to work in our respective locals and practice, the particular constellation of contributors to this blog have decided (from this day forward) to maintain Free Soil as an archive of a period of activity and thought between the years of 2005-2011.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
