Fred Stitt is an architect, and founder of the San Francisco Institute of Architecture (SFIA). SFIA was founded to solve problems in architectural education and was the first, and is still the largest, school of sustainable architecture and green building in the world. He published the first textbook on the subject -- the Ecological Design Handbook -- has conducted dozens of conferences and hundreds of workshops on the subject and is completing two new books on the most radical green technologies. Fred is also the founder of the Free Minds Institute, an online school of Singularity and Libertarian Studies that eventually will offer accredited higher education at little or no cost world wide.
