Welcome to w1mj.com. My name is Eliot Mayer (he/him). I live in Belmont, Massachusetts, USA, with my wife Irina and our dog Noah. Our adult children are not too far away. On this web site, I share my interests, music, photos, and a plug for my consulting services. Enjoy your visit.

Microfinance Loans

Microfinance is a way to help people help themselves by making small business loans. I periodically make a few small loans, typically $25 each, via Kiva, which was recommended by a friend and has a very high rating on Charity Navigator.

Black Lives Matter

It took me a while to get it, but I now believe that if you are not anti-racist, then you are racist. As an engineer, it didn't seem logical at first. But the lack of progress over the past 400 years tells us that we have to ramp up our efforts. Perhaps Bob Dylan said it best, "How many times can a man turn his head, pretending he just doesn't see".
