Daniel Wells is mission-driven to use technology to provide value to the business community by solving issues facing us today, such as helping the unhoused find resources as quickly and efficiently as possible. Profits generated by use of the system will be donated to nonprofits who provide services on our basic needs like water, food and shelter.
In the early 2000's, I invested in and was President of a company that made web-based risk assessment software for Lockheed Martin (Environment, Safety & Health used enterprise-wide), Sandia National Labs (Counter-intelligence risk assessments) and Los Alamos National Labs. I say all this to say that what I want cmxi.org to do is similar in function but for a different purpose. I want to interview people to see what their needs are and assign risk points based on their answers so agencies can prioritize the case request. Instead of being a search tool or directory of resource providers I am going to interview people who are in crisis and connect them to the appropriate person via Zoom for assistance. Imagine the system to be a switchboard of sorts where a crisis expert can video conference with the individual immediately or at least get on their calendar as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The kiosk will be powered by a Rasberry Pi device and using their operating system I can create a web browser that points only to cmxi.org so you can't go surfing the web - it will be a closed network. Web and mobile visitors can certainly use the network on their own devices but it is still a closed network to control information presented.
The system will be self-funded by RecycleLithiumBatteries.com as I have the ability to source and sell scrap batteries to ABTC: https://americanbatterytechnology.com/ I would like to develop people who are unhoused and give them the ability to make money by sourcing lithium batteries for us as well and that is one revenue stream that will pay to administer the system. Expired lithium batteries pose a fire risk so it benefits our communities to get them to a recycler asap.
ShopDowntown.org is a project that merchants identify with the brand as they want people to "Shop Downtown". This project is a simple directory for now but with added functionality could be a powerful commerce site.
