What is Shelter 2.0 and what is it all about? That is a question I think about often and thought about a lot on my ride home from Atlanta yesterday. Often when I talk to people they get caught up in the actual physical structure of the shelter itself but that is such a small part of it. The most important part about Shelter 2.0 is the ability to share it, with both its successes and failures as well as its strengths and it’s weaknesses  with the whole world. We state that our goal is to shelter the one hundred million homeless people in the world. That goal in the age of file sharing, open source, and social networking has never been more achievable. Shelter 2.o is about what we can both learn and achieve as a collective whole.
