Magazine Storm

About a month ago, I got an offer to spend my mileage points with a credit card company, that I will never accumulate to even fly anywhere, so I got to choose magazine subscriptions. One of them is "Wired". What a neat magazine. DYK that there is a possibility of generating energy through movement of hordes in football stadiums and train stations by installing weight-responsive dynamos under the floors? (There is more information on MIT's site.) A subway system could be partially powered by the foot traffic of approximately 25,000 people - though not until the first "crowd farm" is actually built. So, what's the hold up? If you are waiting on ethanol, don't, if you are waiting on windpower, many areas are stating that it's too expensive and, of course, just like where I live, the population would be against it cause it scares them!!
