Wired Steve

Just when you thought that there was no more room for Tech in Steve Mann\'s life, he now generates his own electricity in downtown Toronto. This week, a pile of us climbed up to the top of his house and erected a wind turbine. As Steve sees it:

Yesterday, we put a windmill on our roof, so that we have our own power source. This is to run the cyborg community, cyborglog servers, etc., and to charge all our wearable computing batteries, etc.. See http://wearcam.org/urbine/ This is alot like Open Source, or like Peer to Peer, power generation. Power to the people! It brought together the cyborg community, and the community as a whole, so perhaps this would be of interest to your \'blog. --Steve
