This all takes place in Lynn Mass USA.
It started in 1992, at The Tapley Building.

I did that as a Welcoming Beacon to all because The Tapley Building was intended to become the hub of the Art and Internet Revival of 1992.

Much of the ground work on this project began in Gloucester, twenty years before the 1992 Lynn project started.
This entire effort is one of those Local/Global things.
The topic affects the North Shore as a region, not as several independent municipalities.
In fact, it affects the entire Globe as one entity.
Face it, no matter where you are on Earth, you are surrounded by rising Seas.
Here along the coast of the ol' Noth Shoa, we're sitting on a Sea Level Rise hot spot, facing unique problems and solutions.
From Lynn to Cape Ann, this coastline faces big changes.
We must prepare for them in a regional effort.
Welcome to the Noth Shoa of Boston, home of innovation in the face of Sea Level Rise.
