John W. Mortensen, is a writer for Tech Evaluate. He is originally from Las Vegas, Nevada and moved to Alaska in April 2017.
Growing up, John’s parents innitiaily were quite poor and after much hard work and time were successful as his father was a contractor and his mother was an executive secretary in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a kid, John wanted to be an astronaut, geologist, or scientist and later became a project manager, which is involved with many of those things.
John went to school in Las Vegas at Valley High and then UNLV. Afterwards, he worked in the commercial construction industry and was a pipefitter, foreman, superintendent, project manager, then president after working his way through the ranks. He managed many employees and did this for many years while working on commercial buildings, master planned communities, and extensive building projects like hotel casinos.
Working as a project manager, you use many analytical skill sets to determine the best course of action. Project managers do a lot of critical thinking and problem solving and use many types of systems and software tools to coordinate and not only create and schedule projects, but outline and manage them as well.
Through the years, John’s interest was always inspired by the use of data networks with the infrastructure of the complex building projects he worked on. He was always intrigued by servers and computer systems that ran so many interconnected critical systems within the larger architecture.
Technology, servers, data systems, and software in networks were exciting because of the potential and the equivalent of race cars or star ships and were very compelling “engines” to work with.
Today, as a project manager and writer, John still works with networks and control systems, but his passions are the future of alternative technology and their benefit to the planet, our families, and children.
Research and Expectations
We study and research the latest emergency preparedness technology products. Extreme weather, geomagnetic storms, EMPs, electric vehicles, and alternative energy are all in our future. These all influence the U.S. power grid, which, if it is overloaded or out of date and not prepared it will then affect us.
Converting to alternative technologies like wind and solar power systems, as well as hybrid and electric vehicles and the complete transformation of our world’s energy power infrastructure and economy because of it are intriguing and interesting topics to cover in our articles.
What can you expect from Tech Evaluate? Balanced analysis and review of extreme weather, geomagnetic storms, EMPs, and electric vehicles affects on our aging power grids in relation to our daily lives. This leads us to look at emergency preparedness technology products, such as mobile solar generator kits, hybrid dual fuel generators, communication systems, and satellite communication trackers, to name a few.
Family and Life
John has two wonderful grown sons with families and two beautiful granddaughters. He also has a good brother and lots of nieces and nephews. All of John’s extended family still live west of the Mississippi in the lower 48. John’s goal and passion has been to lead a simple life and leave the big city while staying remotely connected to technology.
John moved to Alaska in 2017 because he had stage 4 throat cancer in 2015/2016 and it changed everything. He decided if he was going to live 5 more minutes or 5 more years, he would not do it in the extreme heat and busy chaos of a big city anymore.
Living in Alaska has definitely had a significant effect on his thinking with remote communication, signal extenders, and satellite communications which they use all the time.
John was involved with motorcycles, Judo, and Taekwondo since he was very young and is a third degree black belt in WTF Taekwondo and still loves martial arts. Life has changed a lot because of some disabilities, but you keep on doing the best you can.
The most important thought he would like to convey is that he also does his writing and investigation for our children, grandchildren, families, and friends; to further explore what can help them in their future with the planet we are leaving them.
