September 4, 2010 – Another great TED speech, another book I wasn’t gonna follow through with.

Giving it over to the wind.

If you’re not familiar with William Kamkwamba, you should be. He’s an African kid who brought electricity to his family by assembling a windmill out of discarded parts of other items.

Given that I probably wasn’t ever going to read the book, It seemed appropriate to hand it over to the RID project.

It represents a lot of the hope I have with this project – that someone will find the items I’m giving away helpful to whatever it is they need. That they’ll find the items, use them, and treasure them in some way that’s important to them.

A good thought to lead into Labor Day weekend – enjoy the time off, all.
