The Legalization of Cannabis Continues. It's now okay to grow it in one of the most conservative states in the country.
Now LEGALIZED, North Carolina will be home to the only industrial hemp commercial decortication facility in the United States. On October 31, 2015 Governor Pat McCrory passed Senate Bill 313 (by not vetoing it) as "an act to recognize the importance and legitimacy of Industrial Hemp research, ...

How Microgrids Become an Energy Oasis After Natural Disasters (What's it worth to you to keep your family safe and business up & running?)
As the deadly Butte fire ravaged the foothills of Amador and Calaveras counties last month, rooms at the Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort were transformed from guest rooms to cot-filled dormitories to accommodate hundreds of people evacuated from nearby communities. The fire scorched 71,000 acres, felling scores of power lines in its path.

If Cannabis for recreational use currently represents a market worth over $2.5 Billion annually imagine what the figures would be for feed, food, textiles, pulp for paper, and Bioenergy within just 10 years.
People who made fortunes in Silicon Valley are making major investments in social networks, applications, business services and other ancillary products for marijuana consumers, dispensaries and cultivators

Story

Leading Clean tech Entrepreneur Working at the Nexus of Energy, Food, and Water for Sustainable Smart Cities
Introduction
Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. It didn't take long for him to zero in on Algae as the best source.

Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Biotech, and Cleantech from San Francisco to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy's Energy Security Task Force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues about Algae technologies and applications.

He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, and even the scientific journal Nature.

He is currently consulting on integrating advanced Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's and Dairy Farms), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Hydroponic systems, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants. The resulting Algae biomass can be fractionalized into Oils, Proteins, and Carbohydrates which contain high value bioactive compounds useful for functional foods and animal feeds.

  • DARPA
    Biological Systems Engineer, 2012 - 2014
    Recruited by TED Fellow Dr. Rachel Armstrong, The mission is to realize interstellar flight before the year 2100. We will accomplish this objective by researching and developing the science and the technologies that will make interstellar flight a reality, igniting the public’s interest, and engaging with all those prepared to invest in interstellar exploration. I am responsible for designing and integrating an Aquaculture (Algae-based) system that will be used for capturing and recycling the CO2 & Wastewater from the crew. That Algae will be used for producing oxygen, clean water, fertilizer for edible plants, and ultimately food aboard the ship.
  • Cleantech Open
    Director, 2013 - 2014
    The mission of Cleantech Open Miami is to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs from all across Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America with big ideas that address today’s most urgent Energy, Economic, and Environmental challenges. (Including Agriculture, Water, and Waste) Since its founding in 2006, CTO has established itself as the leading force for accelerating clean technology entrepreneurs. Of the nearly 600 companies we have worked with, 80% remain viable today and they have gone on to raise external capital exceeding $660 million. By developing a network of more than 1,500 professional volunteers who are willing to lend time and expertise to entrepreneurs who may otherwise not be able to get their ideas off the ground, we are facilitating the growth of the Cleantech Industry and all the positive impact that will come from such technologies. We recruit and match leaders to mentor cleantech startups with growth opportunities in: • Renewable Energies • Energy Storage & Distribution • Energy Efficiency • Renewable Chemicals & Biobased Materials • Information Technologies • Green Building • Transportation • Agriculture, Water & Waste With seven active regions across the US these connections are truly global. A startup based in Miami can receive mentoring from an expert in Houston, license its technology to a strategic partner in California, and receive venture capital from New York. The Cleantech Open provides a platform for that kind of interaction and visibility. My team and I have taken Cleantech Open from having zero presence in Florida to statewide recognition in less than 6 months.

I can't comment on the food because I only had drinks. This is a nice bar to unwind after work as there's a bayfront view.

There are too few seats and not enough outlets when you need to use the WiFi. And why aren't there any fans outside? Hello, it's Miami!!!
