Sun baby, take me away

Via my new favorite newsbyte site, Geeks are Sexy, is this article on people who've made their billions from their solar power technology companies. As more and more of popular media are actually starting to take alternative energy and fuel efficiency seriously, solar power is making a major comeback, and it's all very exciting. I'm actually hoping gas prices continue to rise, because I believe that is the only way the masses will actually push for better fuel efficiency in car technology as well as fuel alternatives.

Another way, of course, is for big-name companies to set the bar and literally make the change they want to see. Take Google's conversion of their Googleplex so that a third of the building is powered by solar energy. Yay Google!
