This Sunday leading a hike for raising awareness about ACE!
Added facebook button to homepage.
This last month has been incredibly action packed!
Received a donation in the amount of $375 from Julien Brumaire!!
Thanks Julien! It’s really happening!! Love you babe!!
Yesterday put up an ad for an intern so that I could distribute some of the work. I had an immediate response from Joe Lee. We met this afternoon and had a long and very insightful discussion about the tech tools being used for ACE. Primarily he has helped me to find a solution for getting the Think Tank up and running.
Graciously received a $50 donation from Anonymous for the cause of “raising awareness about the power of breathing”. Also did some outreach in the form of emails for receiving more funding.
Also received a wonderful encouragement by way of email from a student from China named “Snow Yellow”, asking me questions about infinite capacity, transhumanism, and other concepts presented on the ACE website. I am planning to respond to this email by way of updating the site with new information so as to maximize productivity.
Did some more work on the ACEpedia page “Natural Transhumanism”.
ACE’s primary goal at present is to make ACE sustainable by generating income for its founder and developer, Alix Claire Erie. The next step in doing so is to send out personal emails, make flyers, and business cards, with the intention of getting a small donation out of each one of these people. As well, it is time for ACE to begin making a monthly newsletter to showcase a new entry into the ACEpedia. Goal for April Newsletter: Natural Transhumanism page.

Posted an advertisement on Craigslist and FB for an unpaid intern to help me manage the fundraising campaign, primarily with generating a buzz about the project. I bought my first ad on FB for 2 days for $5.
Over the weekend I had a consultation with Digital Strategist Selena Rossi. She has suggested building a significant buzz about ACE before launching the fundraising campaign. She also stressed the importance of making a good video.
As well, I have made contact with the facilitators of Creator Course, which seems to be in line with the ACE vision. Hopefully, I will be able to collaborate with them on future projects.
Furthermore, I have been given an inital programming task to perform for MyndPlay, a Brain Computer Interface gaming company. This is a very interesting project for ACE, since part of the investment portfolio, as well as part of the immersion programs that lead participants in the ACE education system include a BCI-VR (and eventually Quantum Entanglement) Gaming House.
I jsut got the idea to start adding user profiles. Even before adding the forum. Ahhhh! It is really important to the project to get the member/supporter profiles up to get the buzz going.
Changed the name of the “News” page to “Blog” and “Forum” page to “Think Tank”.
….And the structure of the Think Tank begins to take form.
Added the new image for the ACEpedia book here.
Received first two donations this morning in the amount of $21 from Semrin Demirel and $69 from Peer Broozer! Thanks Semrin and Peer for believing in ACE!!
Working almost daily on getting the fundraising project up and running. Revising the website that has already been launched. Added a new page: “Plan”. Set up an account on PayPal to receive donaations: firstname.lastname@example.org/. Also began two fundrasingcampaigns: one on Fundrazr, one on Kickstarter. Filmed a fundraising video on my iPhone on the fly while at the park. Have not yet edited or even looked at the video.
LAUNCHED THE NEW WEBSITE!!! A few kinks left to work out, but this is what I have been envisioning for at LEAST 10 years!!!
Added Forum tab to menu bar. Updated my bio and added Charles Ostman’s bio. Added some info to the funding page. Added “Aims” to the “Concept” page.
Had long phone consultation with mentor Charles Ostman. Made a budget and added it to the funding page. Filled in information on the ACEpedia and Inhabit ACE pages.
There is much talk floating around about creating a type of assessment or index of personal worth, some ideas are more specific, such as a spiritual index, whilst others are more general, considering education, travel experience, languages acquired, etc. It has also been suggested that such an assessment be implemented in this site as a graduated system of entry into forum areas.
Began working with Bilal Ahmed on ACE. He is giving a lot of consultation on design and on gaining attention. We are going to be working tonight on getting the habitation complex menus working.
The website is starting to look great. There is still a TON of work to do, but it is finally starting to take a form that looks like it is going somewhere. Began to explore methods for integrating a chat/forum into the site, but realized that such an endeavor is not appropriate until the foundational philosophies, proposals, visions and theories are completely displayed.
So now took out the menu item “Forum” and replacing it with “Inhabit ACE”. Also, have now created the html pages for “Funding”, “About”, and “Join ACE” pages….
It has been 2 weeks since the Tantra Satsang has been official at the Yoga Society of San Francisco, and 8 weeks since the first Satsang took place. This gathering takes place every Saturday at 8 p.m. in the Cosmic Temple. It is preceeded by a fire ceremony at 7:30 p.m (possibly to be moved to 7 p.m. in the future to avoid time running over) where participants chant vedic mantras including 108 times chanting the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra.
During satsang there was a brief introduction from some of the masters of the tantric tradition on the definition and usage of tantra, mantra, and yantra. This was followed by each individual choosing a yantra from a provided selection, and then drawing the yantras.
Yesterday and today finished modification of site from the downloaded template size of 780 pixels to 1024 pixels. Got menus working. Next on list of things to do:
- Continue work on logo.
- Type up the content which has already been decided
- Making interactive ACE Complex map, legend and associated pages
- Set up forum
As far as content goes, the main work is to type up the content which has already been decided, as well as making an interactive
Continue work on site. Made good progress! Yay!
Begin new ACE site design.
