LENR on Reddit, Facebook

Reddit is one of the most popular sites on the Internet for discussion of news, politics, technology, science and a whole host of other topics, and the site labels itself as ‘the front page of the internet’. I have seen a few discussions about LENR on there in the past, and I have myself posted about it once in a while. I have just been informed that there is an LENR ‘subreddit‘, which is basically a dedicated space for the discussion of LENR, and it can be found here: http://www.reddit.com/r/LENR/

Facebook also has some spots where people talk about LENR. The most popular group which has nearly 900 members is named ‘Cold Fusion, LENR and Andrea Rossi‘, and I have just joined another smaller Facebook group titled ‘Peak oil, cold fusion and the future of energy’.

The Reddit page isn’t very active currently — there is more activity and comment on Facebook at the moment. But I have to say that those of us who are interested in LENR are still a relatively very small subset of the larger online population. Right now as we wait for further news on the E-Cat and other fronts, there doesn’t seem to be much impetus for rapid growth of interest in the field, but I think with positive results from the E-Cat testing team there is a potential for a much wider discussion of the topic, and we might find lots of new people joining the online discussion.

    I’m looking forward to vertical farms. City centers will have more fresh food, less shipping and hopefully lower costs. Restaurants (good ones) will also receive the benifits as they usually try to source their food from local sources. Vertical farms would also be good for 3rd world country’s and places that have a tough time growing their own food like the far north. Vertical farming will have a very large impact on how society functions and create more of an equilibrium between humanity and nature.

    I wholeheartedly agree with you.

    As it seems, by many proofs, the phenomenon really exists. I have tried for years now invoke serious debate about the need for government funded research program here in Finland, but as it seems, people just are not even remotely interested.

    Though Etiam Inc. has received some funding from http://www.keksintosaatio.fi/

    I am a bit worried about the effects of the coming fuss, when the news will finally break.

    Linkedin has also some LENR groups, and IMHO this is very good sign, as people is not afraid to show their interest in this field in their professional environment.

    The LENR subreddit aggregates most important news in a timely manner. Outside of that subreddit, all of reddit is like one giant chorus of negative Mary Yugo’s, only he is probably better informed. Rarely does a LENR story make it into the other subs, like /r/technology. /r/science is hopless, banning any thinker not conforming to their brand of intolerant dogma.
