Interests in Appropriate Technology[edit | edit source]

  • Starting on a large scale, I am most interested in what we as caring humans in a community can do to improve the way we live.
  • I would like to get my hands dirtier and work on more appropriate technology projects of most any kind.

  • During the fall 2008 semester at Humboldt State University, two colleagues and I helped Arcata legend Bart Orlando build a rough-draft of a solar-powered hot air popcorn popper. We used a DC fan to blow air into a spiral heat exchanger positioned at the focus of Bart's 12' diameter solar cooker, which then blew passed a metal screen to meet the popcorn kernels. Bart is still trying to improve this idea.
