Subject: Sharing some *Good News* and requesting your thoughts and feedback


I'm thrilled to announce that Engineers without Borders has graciously offered to allow Cerbumi.org to begin tackling some of their tough research projects.

Their webpage at http://app1.ewb-usa.org/ResearchProjects.php lists about a dozen projects in total, many of which would be quite suitable for use in the Cerbumi.org framework.

I am requesting your thoughts and feedback as to which projects you would consider to be a good fit for us. Of the twelve, I am particularly drawn to:

* Clearing Vegitation without Burning
* Inexpensive Portable Incubator
* Drying Mechanism for Rice
* Heat Powered LED Lighting
* Testing equipment for improved stove design
* Cold weather composting toilet design
* Machine to remove individual grains from a seed stalk
* Natural cooling methods

My initial thought would be to choose a total of three projects in different general areas of expertise. This would allow Cerbumi.org to appeal to a broad variety of volunteers. Once these projects are available, I think we'd also have a good call-to-action to market.

What are your thoughts? Which projects would you choose? Are three projects too many, too few, or just right?

Warmest regards,

Chris Gagne
