What's Next?

Well, as those of you who know me are probably aware, I've been working on this book about robots since last December. Its about the future of robotic transportation.

Lately, though, I've had a number of other ideas for projects that I might like to work on. I'd thought I'd post them here and see what people think about them.

Two of the ideas are non-profit. The first would provide massage services to war veterans to help them recover from their experiences. It would rely upon contributions and perhaps a nominal fee on a sliding scale for the vets. Other populations that could be helped include former and current foster children, welfare recipients, the elderly and the moderately mentally ill, all of which are groups I have personal reasons for caring about.

I'd also like to launch a charitable contribution service to help pay for this work. This service would help people contribute to other worthy causes without having to share their private information. I know a lot of people would like to avoid all the junk mail, real and virtual, that accompany many such organizations. Whatever is left over from transaction fees would go to fund the massage project.

I'd also working on an idea for a community web site, but details on that are under wraps.

Let me know what you think.
