This is exciting! I can't emphasize enough how exciting it really is.

The best part starts about 11 minutes in, that is where I realized this could change the world!

Most important is that this is only possible with the open source patents mentioned in the video. This is crucial.

And this is "something we should be doing anyway".

Plus, I want one of the home units.

Why is it that someone has to do research to prove that nothing has no effect?  It seems to be an exercise in futility!

Introduction
http://gplus.to/​tecmunky
I changed my name -- get over it
yes that is my real legal name

My World View:  Atheist / Scientist / Secular Humanist
     The Internet is changing the world
     Technology is Wonderful
     Google+ is addicting
 
     A "Theory" is a  *proven*  hypothesis
     Knowledge and Truth are what I strive for
          Science will get us there
 
     Logic exists and I can prove it
     I exist and I can prove it
     everything else which can be proven follows
 
What is Science
A formalized methodology for organizing and generating information in the form of testable observations with predictive power about the universe and our actions.
 
If you decide to circle me:
I will probably check your page to see if I want to circle you. 
If you circle me because you want to save me or proselytize - please don't waste your time or mine.

Accomplishments:
Private Pilot (IR & CP ratings) (inactive)
I design electronics (CEH) for a living -- I like this work, and I happen to be good at it.  (I could tell you what I am working on, but then I'd have to kill you -- just kidding, but I'm still not telling.)
Bragging rights
driven submarines and flown airplanes -- won a car in a radio contest -- and some other stuff too.
