Comment on question about effectiveness of conferences – human and online

https://www.researchgate.net/post/Which_are_the_basic_criteria_on_evaluating_scientific_conferences_online_and_in-person? As Director, The Internet Foundation, I might recommend to never meet in person. Not only for covid, but also travel time, hotel and meeting costs, travel costs, inefficient use of time. Lots of reasons, mostly financial and efficiency related.   You are lumping too many things together with “conferences”. If it is to see

Mars and moon and space need atomic power – shipping to Mars example

SpaceX Starship can return from Mars without surface refilling at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u55zpE4r-_Y The engineering design and manufacturing costs for atomic power are a lot less than the cost of hauling chemical or solar panels to Mars. Do the numbers and see what it is worth to spend on lightweight atomic power units and technologies. A few ten

Comment on a video about making your own butter, is it cost effective in the United States?

Stop buying butter! Do it yourself! Only 1 ingredient needed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arCzflCjzKQ In the United States I think heavy cream with 35% butter fat costs more than butter. And your method requires a mixer, blender, bowls and utensils. So ordinary, non chef, humans might be better to just buy butter when it is on sale.

Self reproducing robot societies that live in the desert and convert sunlight to cities

I have had deserts on my mind a lot over the last few decades.  All during the 1980’s I worked on populations forecasts and issues in Africa, then the Famine Early Warning Systems (FEWS.net), then global climate change.  I sort of keep up with any efforts to turn those vast areas into something more suitable

Emoji languages – symbols and communication

Emily, Humans and animals with eyes are pretty good at quickly identifying things seen in the past.  It is a basic survival skill.  “Identify the person”, “Identify the weapon”, “Identify the ripe fruit”. So when training populations for basic survival, you probably have to go back to “Identify and classify quickly” – if you value

Who the heck sleeps with a Fan and AC on? – my comment Groups asking questions on Facebook not sharing results

⁠Donna Kutac Janak My air conditioner is really inefficient so I keep it at high temperature setting and run two fans continuously. The cost is half of running the air conditioner alone – and more comfortable. I enjoy the noise. You should be asking people why they would run their air conditioner “without” a fan!?

Cream Cheese, Jalapenos and the future of the human species

Cream Cheese, Jalapenos and the future of the human species I am trying to reduce my use of butter, so rather than making toast with butter I used cream cheese today. Since I am curious about the health value of foods as a topic on the Internet, I decided to add diced jalapenos. Then, because

Create arbitrary fields through simulation, measurement, and calibration.

A wave traveling between two parabolic antennas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0cZjOIfwos You might try receiver-transmitter pairs, where each inverts the signal to build a standing wave. Use the final state inside the volume (arbitrary and time dependent if you want) as the constraint, then solve for the signal modifications needed at each site. I first saw this more
