Hello! (tl;dr at the bottom) I haven't posted on these forums for a long time, but have an interesting opportunity and wanted to gather input from a community of people I care a lot about. Some quick background about me... I'm a past PDC graduate (Bill's course in Melbourne), a graduate of the first PAW course (w/ Geoff and Rosemary)... and, a huge nerd. We are a funded startup of 4 people, who specialize in web and mobile technology. Our funder and partner is a veteran in the GIS field, and sold a large field work based Hardware/Software company to GE. In the next couple weeks, we'll be talking to large international aid organizations, ngo's, etc... about their technology needs, specifically around: Mapping and Data Gathering (think gathering data on the field via a tablet with no internet connection). Any input anybody has about ideas and ways we could benefit the PAW community, aid workers in general, and permaculturists in general... I'm all ears. Some random thoughts we've had are: 1. Audio-to-Text input for international field workers. 2. GIS mapping of permaculture/aid sites (think ESRI, or https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4217329) 3. Inventory management for large Permaculture/Aid projects. We've ruled out a lot of things already due to the fact that a pencil and paper can be more effective in a lot of cases. That said, there are still a lot of places technology can help, and that's where I have the opportunity to help at the moment (give me a handful of years and I'll see you all on the field). TL;DR: We have a ton of money (and time) to invest into software (think realtime web/android/iphone/ipad) that can potentially help permalculturists and aid organizations, and I'm reaching out to anyone listening who may have some good/bad ideas. If you have any questions/comments, I'm all ears! Thanks!
