Intereses en Tecnología Apropiada[edit | edit source]

  • Appropriate technology that relates to and helps foster the existence of human connections and social networks.
  • I am also interested in the economic side of appropriate technology, how it is disseminated and how it affects existing local markets.

Experencia en Tecnología Apropiada[edit | edit source]

  • Just one class that I took for my political science major that I later found out was cross listed with an appropriate technology requirement
  • ummmmm.... to be honest thats about it

Criterios[edit | edit source]

Appropriate technology is difficult for me to define, for its strength lies in the fluid ability to adjust to different community needs. That being said here are my nine basic criteria for technology that is truly appropriate:

  • util (useful)
  • eficiente (efficient)
  • necesario (necessary)
  • local (local)
  • barato (cheap)
  • pequeno (small)
  • adapatable (adaptable)
  • sostenible (sustainable)
  • innovador (innovative)
  • I would like to put special emphasis on the importance of such technology to be needed by the community and to be efficient (both in the economic and environmental sense). In addition this technology must be able to be implemented by the local population and be sustainable with existing resources.
