Last weekend I presented a seminar at my church's weekend away on the topic ‘Using technology in your Christian life'. I am tidying up these notes to be included in an upcoming post. In the meantime, I'd like to explore the dangers of technology. Obviously I'm a big fan-boy of technology, but it's got its dangers. We need to be aware of these to ensure we don't become a victim, and instead use technology for the glory of God. Here are five dangers that were raised in the seminar or…Continue

In this video, Randy Alcorn is asked “how do you help unbelievers see their need for Jesus?”.
Randy has a few helpful things to say, but I found this question particularly helpful:
“Has your life lived up to your expectations?”
While this line has real traction with older people (who have lived much of their lives already), there are plenty of younger people who are disappointed with how life has panned out.

The people in our communities need to hear about Jesus. And on the whole in Australia (and you can share what it's like in your country), I don't think we doing a great job at connecting with our communities. How many people are attending our churches who have never been to church before, or haven't been in years? Or as I asked earlier in the week, if your church burned to the ground would the community care or even notice?

The diffusion of Electric Vehicles (EV) fostered by the evolution of the power system towards the new concept of Smart Grid introduces several technological challenges related to the synergy among electricity-propelled vehicle fleets and the energy grid ecosystem. EVs promise to reduce carbon emissions by exploiting Renewable Energy Sources (RESes) for battery recharge, and could potentially serve as storage bank to flatten the fluctuations of power generation caused by the…Continue

This paper presents model of interaction in Smart Grid on the basis of multi-agent system. The use of travelling waves in the multi-agent system describes the behavior of the Smart Grid from the local point, which is being the complement of the conventional approach. The simulation results show that the absorption of the wave in the distributed multi-agent systems is effectively simulated the interaction in Smart Grid.

Electric vehicles (EVs) represent one of the most promising technologies to green the transportation systems. An important issue is that high penetration of EVs brings heavy electricity demand to the power grid. One effective way to alleviate the impact is to integrate local power generation such as renewable energy sources (RESs) into charging infrastructure. Because of the intermittent and indispatchable nature of RESs, it becomes very challenging to coordinate EVs charging with…Continue
