Founder, Otherlab, Makani Power, Squid Labs. Often called an inventor, but prefer to identify as an engineer. On really good days perhaps a scientist. I spend all my days working on grid scale renewable energy production technologies and think about energy and climate issues more generally at night. I care a lot about education and science literacy. I enjoy my contributions to howtoons.com and wattzon.com. I care a lot about instructables.com and the maker movement typified by makezine.com. I believe there is a place for new technology to help society along, but recognise it needs communication, art and design to be a true success.
