Hello and Welcome to any new visitors, and many thanks to any returning ones. If you have relevant thoughts or information, please send it my way (robert@uoah.org). The information here is constantly growing and changing, so a heads-up on a cause or resource, or a thought on an article or idea is always welcome. It might end up as an addition or a new resource.

I'm thinking about some sort of collection of National Stats. NationMaster and Gapminder have that area pretty well covered, so I'm still deciding on what form that will take.

The recently added Ideas in case you missed them:

  • More Money should mean more access to Luxuries, Commodities, and more Buying Power in the Market. Political Sway should not be on the Market
  • When those with Less Money or Power make Bad Decisions it usually impacts themselves the most, and possibly some of their Family or Community. When those with more Money or Power make Bad Decisions it is much more likely to impact Multitudes of People throughout the World
  • Shift Taxation emphasis toward Sales and away from Income
  • If People are well taken care of, then so are the Organizations and Corporations which are simply Groups of those People
  • Locking the Addicted away in Prisons is very similar to how Previous Generations Locked the Mentally Unbalanced away in Sanitariums

Some of you might have noticed some recent layout changes, as well as new separate sections for the Ideas and Causes, and a revised Home page.

Look for more changes to come.

Some Recent Additions and Updates

2011-05-02    5:55 pm

First off, thanks to everyone who has showed interest in and support for the UOAH so far.

Still deciding on certain aspects of the site. As stated other places, I'm trying to get as many ideas and as much info out there as possible, while keeping it as straight forward and easily accessible as possible. No matter where you are or how fast your connection, I want anyone to be able to quickly load, translate, and use the site.

Recently added a few new Causes and Resources in case you missed them: The Centre for Vision in the Developing World, Policy Innovations, Omniglot, and PolitiFact

One more site baby step

2011-04-21    2:43 pm

I recently got the Facebook page up, and added the like buttons to the header last night.

I've gotten questions about some of the future functionality plans, and I have kicked the idea around to have accounts for people and let them comment directly into the forum instead of through email. I might do that eventually, but for now i'm trying to keep things pretty simple. I'm currently trying to get the ideas and info out there while using as little bandwidth as possible. I also wonder how many people really feel like they need another account username and password for yet another site.

From the Present to the Future

2011-04-16    11:44 pm

The UOAH is not only about about viewing today, but also about looking to tomorrow. Some amazing developments are coming along in the world of 3D Printing.

If you haven't seen what MakerBot Industries has been doing or some of the possibilities home 3D printing enables, it's kind of incredible. With the development of a reliable way to melt old prints back into a form usable by the printer, you could easily print and reprint your basic household utility needs. If you break it or get tired of it, you could melt your part down to make something new. There have also been some heavy duty developments as well.

And so it begins here...

Welcome to the UOAH Forum (now the UOAH Site Log as of July 3rd 2011). This will be the home for UOAH news, updates, discussions, thoughts, and more. You can email me (robert@uoah.org) and I might post your comments here and/or respond on the topic here.

If you haven't checked out VICE as mentioned in the Recommeded Resources, I would highly reccomend their VICE Guide to Travel series. From the Gun Markets of Pakistan to the Ghettos of Liberia and the Tea Houses of North Korea, it's quite a unique and informative travel documentary series, a great glance into the world around us.
