Rise of the Technology Class

These conversations are between students from Ecuador, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain and the US who see technology serving a higher purpose: A counter-culture to their predecessors. This is evidence of a new type of generative class who apply technology to their creativity with art, music, science and involvement within the community. Their activity is transparent and active to our evolving civility. These multinational students are socially conscious storytellers. The Moderator of this conversation, Michael Davis is an Executive MBA graduate of Steinbeis University Germany, The Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Karla – The Evolution

The function of the Honda Clarity

The function of the Honda Clarity

My dad was always a car fan, actually my whole family has always had an obsession with cars. Since I became part of YTC, I think i have become more of a car lover. I loved becoming part of a group that had a function to it. Unlike other groups in school, the Cyber Service actually provided a service to the community besides helping itself. I mean you look at other clubs after school, and they were moslty social groups, besides the math clubs and all that. This group actually has a mission, not only to be part of a whole community around the world to enhance our possibilities with technology, but help the community, those left behind, to come with us as well. By helping the kids in town like Cicero, where there is a ton of diversity, we see that the ones that have the easiest reach to technology are not the only ones to enhance it.
The whole idea of an organization like this taught me that there’s more to our selfish ideals of advancement. Technology is sufficient only when the people know how to use it, when it becomes available, and it easily sensed by the public who is willing to invest in it. I mean, a big example is cars. Now with the whole recession thing in the US, and the whole environmental concern, people need to find technologies that support both their pockets and their thirst to conserve the environment. Overall, I have learned to appreciate the technology changes. Before it was not a question of, “Ohh, that’s too expensive, who’s gonna buy that?” My mentallity now is, “Wow, that’s good, I wonder just how much time it needs to become affordable, and is able to reach the community.”

The New Scientist magazine says that USA and Israel scientists are investigating the revolutionary creation of Arturo Estevez, a Spanish inventor.

He crated about thirty years ago “the water motor”. He had many exhibits to show that his invention worked well. But people and scientists believed that it was not viable. The lobby (politicians) of petroleum stopped his development. After a period of great activity, he disappeared without a trace

He got two silver medals on international contests. One by a “purifying gaseous pollutants” and one for its “System for recovery of helicopters in the event of failure”. NASA was interested in the latter invention.

With two liters of water, and a kilogram of stones that were a catalyst.
It produced as much energy as nine liters of petroleum, and it was cheaper than petroleum.
