+Matthew J Price

I love this author for his book "The Infinite Resource" that argued that the worst parts of climate change might be avoided through technological innovation (making new things, making more efficient things, etc that helps reduce production of/absorb C02).

But I figured since you care about climate change, you'd especially love this author for his books on human biotech :3!

+Matthew J Price​​​​​​​​​​ One of the three ambitions that I'm devoting my life to (because I have nothing better to do) is Harnessing The Infinite Resource (innovation).

I'm hoping that people can work on innovative ideas, such as creating solutions to climate change, without being a member of an official organisation. I'm trying to find out if I can harness the secret sauce that powers public (government) & private innovation and democratize it. Make it available and easy for anyone to try.

I'm trying to give people the means to save the world--through innovation.
(I am aware that I'd have to make sure measures are in place to prevent people from trying to destroy the world, also.)

Innovation is a tricky concept to grasp... Because it involves so much involvement between unconnected disciplines. Like, DARPA somehow creates a lot of the initial technologies (I need to find out their process for doing that), then the public sector finds uses for those technologies and develops them further for maximum gain.

But how do they do all of this? What are the ingredients that make this all happen? Secret sauces.
That's what I've been investigating.

And hopefully I can use what I learn to radically make the world a better place.
To make a moonshot, like Google says.



Since I want to empower people to change the world, I'm also investigating collective action and intrinsic motivation.
That's one place where my (amateur) background in psychology, sociology, and game design comes in a little useful.

Every decade a forested area the size of Montana is cut down for beef, soy, palm oil, and wood products. Share to help end the destruction: 
Just four commodities—beef, soy, palm oil, and wood products—drive the majority of global deforestation. And consumers can help stop it.

We are aware of our bacterial microbiomes, now we're beginning to recognize the fungi!
Among the microbes that live in us and on us, bacteria have gotten most of the attention. Now scientists are exploring the fungi and their effects on health.

What exactly could this change?
Wars without bullets?
 
Via +Mark Bruce​
Composite metal foams (CMFs) are tough enough to turn an armor-piercing bullet into dust on impact. Given that these foams are also lighter than metal plating, the material has obvious implications for creating new types of body and vehicle armor – and that’s just the beginning of its potential uses.

I really want to find insights into how the world works, so I try to educate myself. But once I find a speaker, I'm always conflicted with whether I'm about to commit myself to following someone's bad ideas.

How do I find truths? Can I somehow apply something like the Scientific Method to evaluate people's claims?

Oh yay. Maybe I'll find stuff that keeps me entertained while learning.

SO much easier than reading articles and much more lively.
And hopefully much more informative and unbiased than many news outlets.

I've never listened to podcasts before because I didn't know there were people to listen to. :)
Podcasts have finally made their way to Google Play Music, the company announced today in a blog post. Google began recruiting podcasters last October after it initially revealed plans for the...

Tagline
The more self-sufficient people are, the more the world will be at peace. - If innovation can be democratized, that will save the world.
Introduction
My Persisting Missions:
  • Cultivate worldwide self-sufficiency
  • Gamify society
  • Design a public platform for collaborative innovation & research

Ideology:
  • The more self-sufficient that people are, the less need and ability there is for people to dominate each other. That's my hypothesis on advancing world peace.
  • There isn't any true good or evil, there is only facilitation or impediment of people surviving and thriving.
  • Most of life demands reliance on assumptions.
    • I prefer to rely on scientifically-validated information --yet, I am weary of the potential for skewed information due to biases, corruption, and extortion.
  • Most people have good  intentions with what they're doing.
    • People almost always fail to recognize that the other side has a point.
  • There is no debate without consensus of fact.
  • Knowledge of the actualities should always be pursued.
Attitude:
  • Impending devastation exhilarates me.
    • I love critical, global issues.
  • If I can't make a dramatic difference to more than a community, I'm wasting my effort.
    • I care about the principal factors that dictate humanity's course.
  • I do not bother with changing things through institutions, I take grassroot action.
    • Institutions are generally too corrupt and inefficient to bother with.
  • I am not interested in most of humanity; though, I do care for every human's quality of life because I believe that every person's life will have an impact on mine.
    • I think most people are too near-sighted, unambitious, credulous, self-righteous, and/or psychotic.
  • I agree with the motto from the game Assassin's Creed "Nothing is true, everything is permitted."  Not everything you're told or think that you know is the absolute truth.
  • "If you're going to do something, make it matter." - Hewlett Packard
My rules to solving problems:
  • Rule 1) Tackle the roots of problems.
  • Rule 2) Ensure a lasting solution.
I want to make the world more awesome (sustainable, safe, inspiring, equitable, economical, and fun) for everyone!


Catalysts for this change:

  • Cultivating people's knowledge, innovation, collaboration, and self-sufficiency.
  • Creating immersive, real-world games (which, preferably, would benefit society in more ways than just positive emotional states).
Millions die and suffer living every day -things may never be perfect.
  1. What would you do differently if a loved one was one of them?
  2. What would you think if your typical way of life suddenly dissolved? (*cough, cough* War, Pandemic, Famine, Theft, Global Financial Crises, Superstorms)
Join the billions.

Captivations:
  • Save the World Projects (If there are any that fit the style that I work in :3)
  • Discussion
  • Ethics
  • Civics
  • Politics (Only for staying informed; I prefer DIY change.)
  • Getting Educated: Web Articles, MOOCs, Television
  • Technology
  • Business
I associate with those who:
  • Are trying to make a difference.
  • See big pictures
  • Enjoy thinking
  • Deliberate
  • Have healthy skepticism
I would like to have a group of people who will hang out together as roommates (nearly) every day until we die on each other.
I can't live without a sense of fraternity.

What I typically do in my downtime:
  • Tech, Local, & World News
  • Watching Informative Videos (PBS & YouTube)
  • Google+
  • Planning or Organizing Something, or Daydreaming about doing it.
  • Playing Videogames
  • Listening to Music
  • Sulking over Friends, Money, and Mankind

Places Travelled:
Oklahoma, US; Arkansas, US.

Causes that I'm passionate about:

For:
Anthropogenic Climate Change 
Vegetarian/Veganism (Animal Rights)
Equal Human Rights
Self-Sufficiency

Against:
American Oligarchy
Insincere Politics
Conformity to Social Norms
Anti-Vaccination
Inappropriate Use of Antibiotics
