Urban Wind Turbines and Green Tech

I've often thought how useful it would be to have wind powered turbines installed on homes. Not only to ease our power consumption problems here in California but to also empower (literally) people to take some control over their lives and lifestyles.

Wired's NextFest is highlighting some very cool new technology, the Urban Wind Turbine being one of them.

Another er neat tech in the link is a power cord that glows according to the wattage flowing through it. If it is intense then the power being consumed is very high. And, as the commercials say, knowing is half the battle.

I love, love, love that responsible environmentalism makes better and better sense from a business perspective, its been a great idea from a personal perspective for a long time now. I figure I'll have an electric motorcycle within the next five years.
