Top Ten Reasons to Build ZIPPER JUNCTION

This is really simple, a list of the top ten most compelling reasons to build (and operate) ZIPPER JUNCTION™. Let’s see your feedback on the list in the comments! Have at it!!! 1 – Bring honor back to “the trades” a.k.a. blue collar work and workers. Over the past several decades “the trades” have gotten…

Have you watched this?

I hope you’ve had a productive week! We’ve been quite busy over here at ZJ Headquarters and are getting ready to begin our local outreach efforts.  Before we do that, however, I figured now is a good time to re-share a couple  of videos about the WHY, HOW, & WHAT of our groundbreaking project.  We…

Realistic Timelines – What’s Possible?

Time is an interesting concept to get your head around sometimes. Things today seem to move at light speed. When you tap your phone screen you expect instantaneous connection to whatever app or email, video or article you wanted. Forget that the little device in your hand may very well have to travel to SPACE…

What’s Happening?

A recent trend at The ZIPPER JUNCTION Project™ has been the many letters, emails, and notes from so many folks asking:                 What is happening with The Project?                 When will it be built and open its doors?                 Why is it taking so long for anything to get accomplished?

It has been a year since we began the journey of explaining how important individual passion is, as well as seeking feedback for The Project. Well, to be honest it has been several…
