Maarten Pakvis commented on Per-Erik Daniel Eriksson's blog post Pee and Poo - From Problem to Blessing
"Ofcourse, I can imagine that it is really hard to create a bag which is biodegradable but also air tight. Probably a lot of research involved. But the use of the "product" is really simple and therefore good for adoption."

In several minutes he will be there, at the place where it all started.While pedaling his bike, Keith searches his memory “how did it all begin?” Suddenly he remembers.

Maarten Pakvis commented on Maarten Pakvis's blog post An unbalanced world
"I've seen the reaction of the parents, it is really amazing because we can even argue that they probably did it because they though they were handling their kids best interest. Therefore the education about food might also be needed for the…"

Maarten Pakvis commented on Yunus Tasliel's blog post Reinventing the wheel
"I like the idea about using the internet as a platform to innovate, share ideas and solve problems, but sadly there is still the matter of ownership. I believe that until we rethink the way we own solutions, patents, etc we will not be collaboration…"

"Thanks or sharing - did you see the TV programme that tracked his progress? I think one little story hit the national news - this demented group of mothers brought up a load of fish and chips from the local chippie and fed their children through the…"

Maarten Pakvis commented on Bjarne Fich's blog post My windmills
"I like the idea of being co-owner of a windmill, enabling people to actively participate in that market. But, since the issue of the environment came up, I would like to share some ideas on that. Several scientists have argued that building too…"

An unbalanced world

Thinking and writing about a food crisis which is happening locally makes me gloomy. Where some have far too little food and water others have plenty (e.g. too much). We in our western world are even consuming so much that it is now causing major health problems like heart failure, obesitas, diabetes, etc.
