I’m glad that you stopped by. My goal is to help to create a world based on strength of the individual that then leads to support others from that point of strength. On this site you will find ideas, feel free to go to our “take an idea” section and start working on any one. Feel free to collaborate with others you meet with these ideas. You can also leave an idea for others to work on. The focus is on working together to create ultimate beauty, peace and prosperity for all. That is my vision and the vision of the many.
Most people were taught when we were young to believe in the goodness of all and that there is tremendous support for doing the right thing, the honorable thing. Over the last decade, we have all seen many things that have caused us to say this is not true. I am here to tell you, it is true. Imagine if you did one good thing every day for someone you did not know. That’s just one good thing. Like allowing someone to merge in heavy traffic rather than try to get there one minute earlier. That one thing could also be stopping to buy a hungry person a meal, donating your time, signing a petition, anything that contributes to the betterment of everyone. That’s 365 good things per year. If you live to be 80 which is not unheard of, that would be 21,200 good things done if you started at 20. Then what if each good thing you did impacted 10 other people to do just one good thing, that would be 210,200 people you impacted in your life.

Introduction to Renewable Technology and Green Building Seminar
Walker County Community Development Corporation/Raven School, March 2011
LEADERSHIP: Waste To Sustainability
The Green Revolution Radio Show 2/10/10
I have been working on developing a water-energy independent home for almost 10 years now. This project will soon be launched on rockethub.com. It is my personal goal that no one should ever be homeless or without food, water and energy or fuel.
We need to create a sustainable, self-reliant world and this home is the start.
What I always think about is, how long have we humans been living on earth? At least thousands of years.
How many average people own their home, outright? How many own their water production and treatment? How many own their power? Almost no one.
In how many years? Thousands…
This is why we have to do this.
We have to establish a benchmark for life for the average person, so that they are strong and self-supporting and can help others to be the same. It is leadership by example and moving forward on basic needs, that still as of today are not met for the majority.
Our goal is to provide a housing system that would be affordable to almost anyone. We want to permit and builf this energy and water independent home, so that we can use it as a demonstration project to show what can be done.
“To Be Old and Wise, You Have To Be Young and Stupid First.”
“The Future Belongs To Those Who Believe In The Beauty Of Their Dreams.”
Ann Diener began working with renewable technology after seeing the need in the marketplace to provide technology that enables clients to realize benefits in previously untapped resources that are problematic including, waste and waste water. She is the owner of Raven Knight, a full service consulting, marketing and web consulting firm geared towards renewable project development, and also addressing the needs of conventional businesses.
Ms. Diener has been determined to deliver zero waste technology, water independence and sustainability, as well as water and energy independent housing systems. Ms. Diener is focused on the business side of each project, helping clients to address their needs and take advantage of innovative solutions that will increase sustainability and profitability.
Ms. Diener assembled the team of professionals that have their individual expertise in developing the overall project or product to suit a client’s particular application and requirement. The company is now focused on completing the development phase of several projects it has been working on for the last several years.
Ms. Diener has been involved in marketing for almost 20 years. She saw the need in the market for efficient, simple renewable solutions and began focusing on identifying technological leaders in the field nine years ago. She formed Raven Knight in 2002 and worked with numerous developers and manufacturers to evaluate, refine and further develop available sustainable technologies. Over the years there have been many technologies that have not proven to be reliable by Ann and her experts. See www.ravenknight.com for more information on technologies and expertise currently available through her company, Raven Knight.
She will be launching the Sustainability Initiative to further promote the development of new technology in 2012 for Water Energy Independent Housing and Waste to Energy through the initiative.
Marketing & Web Development:
Ann Diener has been involved in marketing through her own businesses and through assisting other start-ups to mid-sized companies with advertising, face to face marketing, internet marketing and web development. For a list of references, please contact her directly.
