Travelling halfway around the world to speak at a conference - always a great opportunity to learn something new.

Dr Thornburg talked about a microbial fuel cell - that uses manure and salt water to generate electricity. Nice.

Imagine combining this with the OLPC... or other low watt computing devices... such as mobile internet gadgets and smart phones...
