Patrick (who gets it):
Ryan (who gets to go second):
What is ideaCity? It’s a good question? Is it a good question? Regardless it’ll be relevant soon. Maybe.
Charlie (lest he feel forgotten): Lot of talk about the GOM oil spill, energy security, and the end of the oil age in the news of late—little science though.

Look, bouncing balls turn a wheel.
Jacob (who also likes things that turn, apparently):
So here’s a short/sweet infographic on how Wind Turbines work.
Most of my graduate study research has been focused on wind energy, and I continue to find the field incredibly inspiring. I’ll almost certainly be writing some blog posts on Wind Turbines in the near future, so this is a good way to familiarize yourself with some of the basics before we get down to the nitty-gritty.
Now go weekend yourself!
