Last November author Dan Buettner announced that San Luis Obispo–along with Denmark and Singapore–was one of the happiest places on the planet. While Oprah raced a film crew down to our sleepy metropolis to discover the source of our alleged happiness, we were left wondering: Isn’t that a little simplistic?

Anyone can contribute, even if the contribution is simply hitting our Facebook Like button on Kickstarter (the button is located right below the video). Or passing this email along.

Our MagCloud editions are sold at cost (to keep the price affordable), and who knew people in Alabama and New York would pay $10 for a little magazine that’s all about the Central Coast of California?
