Earth Maker Ed


It’s my hope to help people build their dreams in Minecraft and then learn to translate these designs into reality.  I am stepping back after a couple of weeks of rest and trying to think about a new way I can make a living that is independent and using computers.  I’d like to try my hand in the educational technology industry.  I am now in San Francisco and entertaining the idea of taking a Udacity course in Virtual Reality development (VR).  I like working with graphics and I’ve played with Unity 3D before.  It might be fun to make a VR game for educational purposes on proteins like CRISPR.  I am wondering if it would be possible to see who is employing people who are skilled in green chemistry in the Bay Area.  There are some ways that I can make a living in this path, but I’m confused about where to start.


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.
