I like your focus on the change in attitude that will have to make it happen. I will create share this view and the article amongst my contacts to this end. Thanks a lot!

While I love the design concepts for this project, as a beekeeper I'm horrified by the lack of understanding of bees, beekeeping and hive design.  I've written a post explaining some of the more fundamental failings here:

Of course, I always appreciate any efforts to get more people interested in beekeeping at a time when bees are under threat - but this kind of design exacerbates the problems, rather than improving life for the bees.
