Zero energy power plants that can fit into a supergrid may sound like lovely sci-fi, but they seem to be getting closer to reality, according to this post on slashdot about an article from Jesse Ausubel of Rockefeller University. Meanwhile, Popular Science profiles a lone inventor in a small Indian town who is obsessed with re-inventing the automobile engine. Fascinating! Note to VCs: stop gazing at your navels or rushing with the herd in looking for the next 5X bagger in your backyard. There are 100X-1000X baggers waiting to happen in so many different areas and markets around the world.
