Christmas Charity

I think I was in the middle of looking for a new camera and came across this pretty cool Nikon campaign.  I checked out a few of the projects and found this one which is the best of them all. 

There's something so simple about this dude's charity. It's like a no-brainer because it is so simple and I would argue, uncontroversial.  I watched…

So what is happening with ZenStor and what are we waiting for exactly? What should we be doing while we wait if anything?  I'd like to make the case that we should be getting some dry powder at the ready. 

Let's Review shall we?

This Website Shutting Down Soon?

Just a heads up, the ad revenue is falling below the cost of running the site. I'll leave the site up for another 10 days and then close it if the problem continues.

Airborne Ebola: Old News & Yes, Already Proven

No sense in hyping this so forgive the short intro:


In 1989, Reston, VA─ one of the most famous U.S. planned communities located about 10 miles from Washington DC─ stood at the epicenter of a potential biological disaster. This well-known story was narrated by Richard Preston in a bone chilling account related to the recognition and containment of a…

Ebola Containment: CDC vs WHO

I'll keep this short and sweet.  After this first case of Ebola was announced in Texas, I was concerned and then very concerned when it was mentioned this person traveled through an airport I use in Washington DC, namely, Dulles airport in Virginia.

Some in the media, have been spreading an idea that apparently is being touted by the CDC. Namely, Ebola is only spread by people showing…

Quantumscape Job Portends Manufacturing?

First you make a material science discovery of something new and interesting.  Then you build a prototype paying attention not only to repeatable outcomes but also costs and scalability. With this groundwork in place, you begin planning your manufacturing strategy. 

That appears to be where Quantumscape is at if their recent job advertisement on Linkedin is any indication. (it may not…

Who was that masked man? - An EEnterview of the Fabled EEStorblogger

Nothing lasts forever... except this story it seems.   Still, we appear to have reached a tipping point.  There is a change in the air.  Sure, one can still ponder the ultimate outcome but the days of intrigue and mystery are largely behind us.  Gone are the days where ZMC wondered when Dick Weir was going to deliver something commercial, and also, the days where Dick Weir had to worry about keeping his operation / research funded.  …

Nekote Memorial Service

I've been trying to think of a fitting tribute to Nekote who poured so much blood, sweat and tears into enabling us all to carry out our obsession so effortlessly here.  I've decided we're going to do two things. First, we will have a preliminary memorial all day June 14, 2014.  That day will be Nekote Day.  You can post your memories, thoughts and comments in a thread I…

Energy Storage Social Network

As you know, I've been dabbling a bit with feeds to bring in more energy storage news.  I haven't gotten a lot of feedback on this so it seems obvious people are fairly focused on ZENN/EEStor, LENR, AGW and other stuff like that.   

I had originally thought that if EEStor delivered, this site would turn into a place where all aspects of energy storage are discussed etc.    That seems less likely all the time. 

But, I have a renewed interest in…
