Tech Advances...

Fun example: Cryptocurrency valuation. the relative amounts raised by digital currencies, $2m and up, 1/2014 thru 8/2018.

For anyone ready to dip a toe in, I recommend Cryptoassets by Burniske & Tatar. Initially I cringed at the title, but it's very good. This work is thorough, serious, and professional—just what a burgeoning tech space needs to become mature.

As of December 2019, I've written four articles for the Green Energy Times, a free eco-focused newsletter in Vermont. Two of my entries covered IPCC reports. One article introduces decarbonization policies as the start of a long arc of economic change. People seem to know this as "a carbon tax" where I live. There are policies that deal with carbon all over the world. The World Bank tracks them with a map: the Carbon Pricing Dashboard. Handy work, that page. Such things take dedicated effort. In that spirit, I plan to draw out a short index of high quality resources to do with blockchain technology and distributed ledgers. At the moment, I'm looking into uses for these things within the energy sector—or for collective sharing systems in place of the modern grid. These are termed aggregated, peer-to-peer, and community microgrids. Users might become 'prosumer' if they capture incident solar and resell it. (Wind, also.)

I carry a license from the FAA to fly unmanned aircraft under 14 CFR part 107, and I live near the eastern coastline of Massachusetts.

Also, I understand the DOM. I've worked with sites, servers, and CSS. I am not an expert in Javascript.

Putting the tech habit on hold...

For two years I spent most of my time studying bioelectromagnetics, including magnetoreception. These are subjects covered cursorily by entries on Wikipedia, but extensively via published science. It is a relatively new discipline. A dream developed to work under experts in this field, but I am not in pursuit at this time.

I built a brain stimulator of cheap electronic parts, and used it to experiment on myself. It had definite, noticeable cognitive effects. I did not continue with regular usage of it the way some have done, but the experience was enough to validate the perspective that NIBS will supercede drugs altogether, and that this transformation has begun. Several scientists and many other advocates espouse this view; it provides a welcome counterbalance to the revelations now emerging around the human body's sensitivities to radio. I hope to see integration of these achievements wholly complete in my lifetime.

NIBS, tDCS, tACS, rTMS, and so on.... Search these things; read what you can via indexed sources through the NCBI Portal, which is part of our government's tremendous public health budget.
