That is huge!!!!!!!!!!

    This link explains some of my thinking better than I: http://jonathandonner.com/donner_aut...gworld_TIS.pdf

    Kiva also has a robust telephony focus in its Micro-Loan programs: Kiva - Loans that change lives

    The HomeStove is very neat on several levels!
    Thank you so much for posting this w/your links. I'm reading the paper from the first link now and its very interesting - its a good read. Reminds me of all of the papers on telephony I had to read when I was in school. Oddly enough, I miss academic readings once in a while.

    The Biolite website says you can use this to charge LED lights. I think this would be a real advantage in bad situations. If the phone systems are down where you can't use your mobile, it will still be important to have portable lighting. I'm guessing there are either chargers or adapters that can utilize the USB plug? If I'm not mistaken, there are already rechargeable 123 batteries, like the kind that go into tac lights. I believe in being prepared so I think this can still be a great alternative, even for people that already have back-up batteries ready to go. I'm just wondering how long it would take for this unit to fully charge a phone or a pair of 123s?

    I went to their web site and they have a peddle version on its way. I'm going to get one for $49.95 from the web site (the ones on ebay are $20 to $30 more for some reason). Human Powered Generators For Sale to Generate Your Own Electricity

    That is very cool idea.

    Another eco-friendly wood stove I found which is pretty cool is the G3 Rocket Stove. It looks great for camping or long term emergency cooking. I particularly like the second burner attachment so you can add a second pot and share the heat as it passes into the flue. It seems you can buy them in the UK but they are designed and made in the USA at Envirofit.

    Here's the UK link Wild Stoves, but it doesn't seem they offer the extension unit for it. To purchase in the USA, I think you'd have to call Envirofit directly.

    Viewing the Envirofit website, it also looks like they are developing a turbo model which uses forced air, so the fire burns hotter and more efficiently. It also seems it can be used indoors with the flue vented through the wall if you have a small hunting cabin or some remote outpost for a more permanent set-up.
