The Road Ahead

There are some pretty big problems that exist in the world today. Terrorism is a threat to the world. The drug trade causes problems directly for citizens and funds terrorist activities.I think it would be interesting to see an actual 3D MMO for the next season of Evoke. Graphics definitely draw people in and it would give people a chance to bump into other players that they can team up with. How that can be worked into the spirit of a game like Evoke is probably an epic win on its own. I've…See More

Teachers in a Crisis

During an outbreak, it is important to keep the disease from spreading. One of the ways that diseases spread in normal situations is through students in schools. I would call upon teachers to distribute lessons on-line to keep the children at home.See More

Virtual Reality Money

Online gaming worlds such as World of Warcraft, EVE Online, and Second Life have many people interacting in them. This interaction creates an environment of supply and demand as in the real world. While Blizzard bans gold selling in World of Warcraft, Linden Labs allows and even facilitates exchanges between dollars and their online currency, the linden.Transactions with the linden are limited to Second Life servers. Essentially, they are centralized. Having a game world that is non-centralized…See More

Water From Air

I can't remember where I first read about it. Maybe it was Popular Science or Popular Mechanics. Anyway, people have figured out how to get water out of the humidity in the air. Some products are starting to show up on the market that do that now. One company producing such a product is EcoloBlue. They make a water cooler for home and office use as well as larger industrial unitsSee More

More Efficient Wind Turbines

A new type of wind turbine has been increasing in popularity. It is the vertical axis wind turbine and it has several environmental benefits. First, it is more efficient with one such model being 43-45% efficient. Second, it is much safer to avian species, so it won't harm endangered birds. Third, it is much quieter. And fourth, the generator is on the ground, so maintenance is much easier. An article about one VAWT design and its inventor, Ron Taylor, is available at…See More

Medicine People

I found a study titled, "INDIGENOUS WOMEN HEALERS FORMED GROUPS TO PRACTICE TRADITIONAL MEDICINE IN OAXACA (MEXICO)." This is especially interesting to me because I have a friend who is a Choctaw Holy Man. Having been his roommate for the better portion of a year, I was able to learn a great deal from him. I learned that yarrow can stop bleeding and that tension points on a person's back can be worked out to get rid of headaches. Frequently, I find myself using what he taught me.

Ushahidi in Counter Insurgency

Ushahidi appears to be a great way to gain information about what happens in a crisis. How could Ushahidi be used to aid counter insurgency operations in places affected by violence? I believe that Ushahidi could be used by military units providing aid to an area of operation. Intelligence from the crowd could provide vital clues to not only know what the bad guys are doing, but also what the population needs to keep situations stable.



As a computer science professional, I'm going to… Continue

Listen to the Right People

It's impossible to find a good solution to a problem you don't understand. I think that the first place to start when looking for a solution is understanding the problem by listening to the people it impacts the most. The knowledge one gains creates a foundation for a solution to be built on.Listening to the right people also leads to understanding the circ***tances of the problem: what other social, cultural or political elements contribute to this problem? What has already been tried? Who…See More
