Resilient Fayetteville in 2020

I was gonna make a Google map of my resilient city, but I thought about it for a moment and that didn't make much sense. I think the infrastructure need for a resilient city is not structural, but informational. We need our residents connect through informational networks (compulsory and otherwise), not through a physical coming together.

Maybe that's a cop-out of an answer, but that's what I'm going with.

Ushahidi in the Developed U.S.

A unique way to use Ushahidi in the Southeastern United States? We're really not prone to many natural disasters. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards are all exceptionally rare. Combine that with are exceptional 911 service, and Ushahidi seems almost useless here. That is unless Ushahidi can actually report on a crisis that's not visible to the naked eye...


I'm not a germaphobe by any means, but I can see how it would be exceptionally useful to have everybody…

Afghanistan Women in 2020...

In 2020, I think the majority of teachers will be women... for both boys and girls, closely resembling our current gender roles here in America's educational system. That's it. Not much to say, but a lot to hope for.

Helping Women...

Too easy. I'm in the Army. I've been to Afghanistan and I'm going back soon. This is what I do. I make situations possible to empower women in that country. This time around I'm going to follow Greg Mortenson's model.

Women's Empowerment Must Read...

Holy crap... I can't believe this wasn't mentioned in the mission details. If you have read Greg Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea or Stones into Schools, you are missing a seminal work on empowering women through education. If you care anything at all about this issue, you must read these books.

2020 Bank...

It's 2020. A new bank just opened up. They are strickly an online only presence. They have no brick and mortar representation. All deposits must be electronically submitted by scanning and then email your checks or you can mail your deposits to them, but they really prefer you don't. By the way, they've pretty much consolidated your wh*** financial life: checking, savings, equity and bond investments, insurance, everything. The name of this bank is USAA.


Oh wait, they've…

My Money Act...

This is kind of drastic and we decided to do it before this mission, but my wife and I have decided not to save for retirement. Instead we're investing in as much education as we can, a few pieces of real estate, renewable energy systems, and building up a substantial emergency fund (~ $100,000 US). As for retirement, we simply just plan to keep earning money doing something we love doing, even if we only earn a small amount. If our properties are paid off and our energy is free, or expenses… Continue

New (No) Money...

The days of money are nearing an end. Essentially, what we've set ourselves up for in the developed world (and what is currently bleeding over into the undeveloped world) is a system of electronic credits. We simply have an electronic account that keeps getting debited. Money... rather currency... is no longer necessary.


However, this all has one very big problem... it can't last. At some point, be malicious or accidental, everybody's little accounts are going to be wiped…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
