Hi Candia and all, thanks for the creation of this group and accept me here, I hope we can share interesting stuff...

I work with software and teaching, I want to share ideas about how this industry (software, PC, Net) can play significant role into a "Eco aware" lifestyle...

I want to take advantage that the group is small and create exchange as much as we can about topics on this community...
Sometimes, big groups makes impossible for meaningful conversations (maybe because of Dunbar Number... lol)...

[Photo] The photo here is one of the smallest commercial computer we can buy, and I like to share it here and say that this small computer has enough "intelligence" for lots of tasks inside our houses, than can (potentially) make them much more "intelligent" and Eco-aware...

As a little practical experimentation, I did some tests measuring temperature and light with similar devices... I believe we can have a HUGE improvement on energy usage for illumination or air conditioning, for example, by using this little computers inside a kind of "intelligent light system" that may provide light just WHEN and WHERE it is needed, not just when the switch is turned ON...

The message here is that, it DOES NOT cost thousands of Dollars... the technology is already at the "penny" level...

Did some documentation here:
microbbox

I choose this topic to start because this is one area that I am sure we can think and act TODAY, not tomorrow...

Please, few free to comment and share,
thanks all,
Valter Fukuoka

Welcome to the Eco-Mentor community.

Paradigm for Living Well Is Rooted in an Eco-Intelligent Worldview
An eco-intelligent worldview is a a view of life that is rooted in the principles of balance and wholeness. Acheiving balance and wholeness is a function of interdependence between humans and the earth. This interdependence takes place naturally when the ‘eco-relationships’ that define our personal and planetary ecology are working together to exchange positive, life-giving energy. Below, is a paradigm which illustrates all of the ‘eco-relationships’ that define our personal and planetary ecology, -essentially, our wholeness.
