Lazy Music for a Lazy Day…But Wait, There’s More

Life is What Happens When You Make Plans

Initially, I wanted to make this a post filled with nothing but smooth jams because I wanted us to discuss polygamy more and cause I was having one of those lazy days but I just HAD to give props real quick to someone

This Guy is a Genius

You know when I first read about Jim and his “oh my goodness that’s genius” lights I thought two things:

a) The ex-film schooler in me said, this is absolute genius. Everyone in the world should get like Archimedes and jump out of the shower and run around declaring the genius of it. This dude found a way to leverage stuff that’s already existent and use it to save A HELLLUUUVVAAA LOT of money when it comes to ati-I-pay-what (njeri understands this one) lighting

b) This dude had better get a patent or way to leverage and/or profit from this quick. So let me highly recommend that: Jim, as far as I can tell, your idea is genius….get on a boat to Nollywood, Bollywood, Hollywood or your local patent office. Make this work for you man and you have nothing but my respect man. Nothing but respect!

So please stop by his site or check out the story Afrigadget did on his lights ( props to them for being one of Time’s 50 best websites of 2008 ) which links to his Afrigadget page and show him some love, esp if you love yourself some media.

    I keep saying thats the money ticket right there… things that have to do with electricity or energy. I was working for the UN in somalia and we took on a contract with a solar energy company that was worth billions. The solar panels were obsolete in a few months but the excitement of discovering an alternative source of energy had us all going for months… oh well now let me go read his blog…

    @meek meek: Especially the person who will popularize alternatives to fossil fuels for cars….that person will become an instant icon. Enjoy learning about the DIY lights……………

    @Carol: I have just a few things I need to get done before I begin my next series, which will be video posts…I am pretty much tired of typing at this point, need to take a break from it for at least a few days and play around with video and audio.

    Yeah, please show Jimmy and his DIY lights some love.

    I saw the guys invention. Quite a nice money-saving device. Instead of complaining that he can’t afford the expensive equipment he needed, he spent his energy inventing an alternative that will serve the same purpose. I am proud of Africans.

    @Tony: So am I, Tony, so am I. Their project is what innovation is all about. And I shouldn’t forget to send huge thanks and props to Afrigadget for taking initiatives like theres and putting them on the www .
