From void into vision, from vision to mind, from mind into speech, from speech to the tribe, from the tribe into din.

Solar Boston - Boston Harbor Islands

I like to visit the Boston Harbor Islands at least once every summer. Last year, I noticed all the wind and solar in use out there. The Hull wind turbines dominate one section of the horizon and the skyline of Boston rises like some science fiction Oz from another. On the islands there is quiet and distance, a magic place only a ferry ride away.

This year my friend Werner and Julie of Videosphere joined me to island hop and produce a video about what we've seen. There are solar assisted composting toilets, solar electric panels, solar hot water heaters, small and large wind turbines, and even solar vehicles. The future is already here. All we have to do is recognize it.

I'm just curious - if I wanted to get solar panels for my house, where would I find out about that?

I find the concept fascinating.

Thank you gmoke ! Your demo and discussion in Cambridge Central Square is fun! Please stop by our neighborhood some weekend with the demo. Kids, parents, passersby around here would be very interested.
