The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

Via @auerswald, this video is wonderful. And from @stevecase: Congrats!!! RT @wkamkwamba: I can't believe it. "Boy Who Harnessed Wind" just got into top 10 on Amazon

For those still unfamiliar with Twitter, "RT" simply stands for re-tweet. It is a way for people to forward something from another writer.

The Barefoot College is an amazing organization, but Mr. Kamkwamba was entrepreneurial enough to build a windmill with no training at all and seeing just a few pictures from a library book. It's an empowering story and Jon Stewart gets a great line in about half way through the interview. Mr. Kamkwamba gets the last laugh though. Do watch the whole video.
