Umesh writes about a simple idea: farmers should keep part of what they produce, to sell it later at better prices. This means farmers (in India) should have silos and cool places to store food. This also means they should have a network of information - otherwise, how do you adapt your strategy? I believe Suhit and friends are working along that line.

Umesh also writes about preprocessing food so that intermediate links are done without. The general concept here would be to render cities un-necessary, which is interesting if we want to go forward to (networked) villages. How cities and megacities came to be is one story, but what do we need them for nowadays? Could we get that without megacities?

It leaves me wondering if this way of doing things has benefits for consumers, public health and general sustainability, as well as for farmers.
