“Socially Sound” Features David South on Debut Episode

Doing well by doing good. That’s a motto that David B. South has lived by since he first started building Monolithic Domes back in the 1970s. Now his philanthropic efforts are being highlighted by one of the nation’s savviest young entrepreneurs.

Shama Kabani, who is featured in the September 2011 issue of Entrepreneur Magazine recently selected South to be her guest for the debut episode of her new TV broadcast, Socially Sound with Shama. The goal of the weekly news segment is to highlight CEOs who are making a difference in the world.

During the interview, South talked about the work Domes for the World is doing in Indonesia and other developing countries. He also highlighted the benefits of Grow Domes, which are used to grow food indoors. “The domes are so super insulated, we can put them in the Arctic, or we can put them in the desert,” he said. “We’ll grow food using artificial light and hydroponics, and we’ll be able to grow food much, much faster and more of it than can be done any other way.”

Given that Shama is a leading social media expert, it was no surprise that she also asked South about how he is using the Internet to spread the word about Monolithic Domes and EcoShells. “We started with the Internet back in 1993 before most people had any idea, and without it, we couldn’t market,” South said. “We get 50,000 unique visitors from 190 countries, and it could not be done without it.”
