... and some stuff I've doneEdit

Resilience, pandemics, EbolaEdit

  • PandemicFluGame is a new project. Let's see what it would look like!
  • (link to 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.

Canaripedia & LocalpediaEdit

Permaculture, Food etcEdit

Pieces for The Future We DeserveEdit

For The FWD I wrote 3 pieces:


For Hexayurt I've done some scale models:

Also, 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.

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


Software (outside epidemiological work)Edit

  • Slides.bas was a piece of software I wrote to explain medicine, 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. Yes, that's the apple II.
  • SOLE is a simple outline editor. Wants to be like Maxthink (only free, multiplatform and multilanguage) when it grows up.

Music and VideosEdit

Older version of this pageEdit has older version of this page, with some examples I have yet to port to this main page.
