[ Benetech] - "Non-profit social entrepreneurial venture harnessing the power of technology for social benefit." Quite relevant to us. --[[User:Singkong2005|Singkong2005]] &middot; <small>[[User talk:Singkong2005|talk]]</small> 20:58, 8 January 2007 (PST)
:Now this is amusing. I had breakfast with a guy who works for Benetech as a consultant, and talked a lot about Appropedia, but for some reason got busy and and didn't follow through. Benetech is about 20 miles from my home (James is about half as far away). I'll dig a little deeper, but if you look a bit deeper, they seem to focus more on high tech for humanity than on appropriate tech. Still, there is clearly some alignment, particularly in the venture area. One would think they would align well with Kickstart, who seems especially aligned with us. --[[User:Curtbeckmann|CurtB]] 16:13, 9 January 2007 (PST)
== Solar expansion ==
A reminder to myself or others to create articles/categories about
* Solar Hydrogen (solar catalytic production of H2 from water, applies solar thermal concepts)
* Solar Carbon Fixation (solar catalytic fixation of atmospheric CO2 into other substances, can be a form of carbon sequestration or petroleum-alternative source for plastics, etc., analogous to how plants naturally cleave double-bonds in CO2 to create sugars and other more complex molecules)
* Concentrating+tracking solar PV (e.g. see the SunCube at )
