Show Notes for Episode # 17: Solar Power & World’s Smallest Computer
Today is May 26th. 2014 – Welcome to Episode # 17 of Bitcoins and Gravy, a weekly show about anything and everything having to do with Bitcoins and the Bitcoin community.
On today’s show Lij and I travel to Tel Aviv, Israel to speak with Nissan Bahar. Nissan is one of the core developers of Keepod – a simple and inexpensive technology that may be able to help bridge the “digital divide” that we see in the world today. Together we discover that there are over five billion people – that’s two thirds of the world's population – who still do not have access to a computer or a smartphone. Hey people . . . that’s a lot of people!
We also continue our “To The Sun” series as we talk with Solarcoin’s very own Nick Gogerty, the Founder of Solarcoin. Nick wrote the white paper on Solarcoin and he’s just the guy we’ve been waiting to talk with to get the final details on the Solarcoin project and what we can expect to see in the years ahead. The future definitely looks bright for Solarcoin AND for Solar Energy.
You know maybe it really is time we started paying more attention to that massive flaming ball of nuclear energy in the sky. After all it really is our very own naturally occurring nuclear power plant. Oh yeah but without the associated nuclear problems like nuclear waste and Fukushima style meltdowns.
