Mapping

GPS I am meditating today on a couple of different projects that have surfaced in search for a way to work on the science of the brain.  Three things have emerged.  First, a couple of weeks ago I contacted my friend who is a professor now about working with him on proteins.  Things have been really going well with that conversation.  We may even be able to do some work on the brain that way.  Second, a couple of weeks ago I contacted the folks at City Data Company about doing a Walkabout map of the AT.  I’ve tried to use their software with my LG G2 phone and have had trouble getting high resolution mapping.  After talking to a friend, I found a cheap, light GPS for the mapping project.  Trying it out today for the first time in Oakland Cemetery.  Third, a writing coach who used to write for TV and now does teacher coaching is willing to help me write a book.  She said I could pay her in books.  Things are looking up.  One step at a time.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
