Bit of awsomeness #2: a piezoelectric windfarm without noise, density issues, or dead birds and bats.
Tall, cattail-like stalks generate electricity by swaying in the wind.

First real annoyance here: 'Suggestions' does not clearly indicate who has an account and who doesn't. You can mouseover the name and check if it's a link, but that's it. Too darned easy to spam people.

I say this in the heat of embarrassment: I'm sure Neil Gaiman will join when and if he pleases; he doesn't need to hear from me about it. (Uncircled, so I don't risk adding to his inbox again.)

Edit: I'm referring specifically to the right-hand panel suggestions, not the (much clearer) Circles view.
