Via GrownInTheCity: The town of Sedgwick, Maine, population 1,012 (according to the 2000 census), has become the first town in the United States to pass a Food Sovereignty ordinance. In doing so, the town declared their right to produce and sell local foods of their choosing, without the oversight of State or federal regulation.
Shelly Roche for BytestyleTV
So... who am I and why am I doing this? I (Shelly Roche) started ByteStyle.TV in the summer of 2009, intending to do a tech podcast... but I've ended up talking about much more than just the tech world - politics, news, food issues... you name it. There's some pretty ridiculous stuff going on in the world right now, and we don't always hear about it until it's too late (if at all). I have a technology background (Open Source, Drupal, Ruby on Rails, iPhone), and tend to be very entrepreneurial. I write articles for Urban Garden magazine, and have been on Fox News' Freedom Watch (with Judge Napolitano, Ron Paul & Peter Schiff), Fox Business, Russia Today, FreeTalkLive, PJTV, YRTV, Freedom's Phoenix, the Chicken Whisperer and more. I'm currently exploring North America in my RV whilst doing some top-secret awesome tech stuff 🙂 Shelly Roche was formerly at ByteStyle.tv and is promising to return some day!
