... and some stuff I've done[edit]

Canaripedia (español), Localpedia (English)[edit]

Resilience, pandemics, Ebola[edit]

  • http://www.ResilienceMaps.org (link to plescamac.com was broken so now the files are hosted in resiliencemaps itself - good license!)
  • Ebola is a broad view on how to use appropriate tech for Ebola, and Excubator is a specific concept to explore a different type of hazmat suit.

Permaculture, Food etc[edit]

TheFWD[edit]

For The FWD I wrote 3 pieces:

Hexayurt[edit]

I've done some scale models:

For Hexayurt I've helped with some how-tos:

  • Camp Danger Hexayurt Hinge Technique: high quality videos for a smart refinement. Probably useful for many other light-panel hexayurt designs.
  • Plywood: there's plywood everywhere. Harder to build than light-panel hexayurts, but maybe the panels are more widely available. A how-to is a must for this kind of hexayurt, so please help make a better documentation.
  • H 13: The standard "classic" hexayurt uses 12 panels. One extra panel and you get 66% extra standing room. Can use "foldable" ideas if built with light panels.
  • Pup_Hexayurt I contributed the image for the panel pictured on the side.

Also for Hexayurt, I translated Pais_Hexayurt, which is about Haiti but may also be applicable to other settings.

Translations[edit]

Software[edit]

  • Slides.bas was a piece of software I wrote to explain last-year examples to a first-year student. First written in applesoft, I ported it into ms-basic.
  • I wrote a musical keyboard program in assembler for the 6502.
  • SOLE is a simple outline editor. Wants to be like Maxthink (only free, multiplatform and multilanguage) when it grows up.

Music and Videos[edit]
