I remember splashing a couple electrodes in my hydroponic avocado's water and reading ~200mV, and thinking "uhm, maybe I can step it up to a couple volts with a charge pump and fire up an LED!".
They did it. They friggin' did it.
Names under #colonization. #chomorru #guam Harsh.
Hello, I am married into the No Land family. I have been for 20 years but I just found about what these Chommoru names mean because Spouse was not taught her native language in order to keep her from harm suffered by her mother during Japanese and American colonization of the island for speaking Chomorru. Wow. You won't find this under the 'tourists Guam' websites. The strength and agony of these people is palpable.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."
Now is the time to join streets.mn‘s Climate Committee:
“We’ll be talking about the ways streets.mn intersects with climate breakdown and how we can foster and facilitate engagement and action within our mission.
We’re still in early planning stages, so there’s lots of room for your ideas and energy. What we’re firm on is a conversation grounded in the reality of climate science and our institutional commitment.”

Just ran across the minimal architecture Zinc Bromine battery.
Here is a guy on You Tube making one. It is apparently low cost, easy to make, takes a recharge well and is relatively safe to DIY. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvSYlMtY1Cg

1. MLK jr. Quotes that fly in the face of the white liberal
“Let us say boldly that if the violations of law by the white man in the slums over the years were calculated and compared with the law-breaking of a few days of riots, the hardened criminal would be the white man. These are often difficult things to say but I have come to see more and more that it is necessary to utter the truth in order to deal with the great problems that we face in our society.”
Nerd. I am car-free and ride a recumbent trike. I am writing a solarpunk novel. I'm into science and ecology.
