Intereses en Tecnología Apropiada[edit | edit source]

Mis intereses son diversos, pero todo tiene que hacer con la vida cotidiana de la comunidad. Lo que parece muy inportante a mi es la agua y la necesidad de proveer agua potable a los que todavia no lo tiene.

Tambien, y a la misma nivel de interes por mi es la asunta de la comida local. Esto va a ser cada vez mas inportante mientras el precio del petroleo sube y la transportacion de comida llega a ser muy cara...

Experencia en Tecnología Apropiada[edit | edit source]

He trabajado en un jardín organico desde mi niñéz, y tambien yo se mucho del crecimiento de animales por la comida.

Con respeto al agua potable, no he trabajado con systemas de agua todavia, pero he visto lo que pasa cuando un pueblo no lo tiene. Pasé unas semanas en Peru, con un equìpo de medicos cristianos, y el problema mas grave era la falta de agua limpia. Resultó que los pueblos tenían muchas infecciónes por la falta de sanitación, y los niños especialmente tenían lumbrices y diarrea por el agua.

Criterios de Technología Apropiada[edit | edit source]

Technologia, para merecer el nombre Apropiada o Sustentable, tiene que:

  • corresponder a un problema identificada por la comunidad,
  • ser facil para usar,
  • no ser caro,
  • no contaminar el medio ambiente,
  • usar recursos locales tanto que sea posible,
  • tomar en cuenta los factores culturales quen estan presente en la comunidad,
  • corresponder a la situaction economica
    • si hay un falto de trabajo, AT no usa technologias que sustituyen trabajo humano,
  • y autorizar al pueblo, no a un grupo de elietes.


Unos Pensamientos[edit | edit source]

Mundane Science

the lowly path

the slow turning wheel of human exertion

the needs of the poor-blessed be they-

food, water, shelter, air, fire


we chase the profiteer´s needle

while millions starve and die

we, the rich, the powerful, the ones who know

turn a blind eye to humble suffering

as if our god, science, were too proud to behold this slow starvation

then let science be slow, let it wait and listen while the voiceless cry

let mediators cross over and sit and learn

this deity is of our own making...make it serve us then

make ourselves serve the least among us

lift up the commonplace, glorify the mundane

for every valley shall be exalted

and the last shall be first

and we are the ones to do it

Great page[edit source]

Hola Claire,

Nice work on your page. I added an internal link to your userpage, and you may want to add some more. Great photo. In the future, try to keep your uploaded image sizes much smaller. Here are some instructions that may help.

Hi Claire,
Did the notes at this link help with compressing your images? If so, you can just upload a smaller version with the same file name and it will replace the one you currently have. If not, let me know and I can help.
