Weekend Reading: Wind Turbines, Bruce Sterling, and Economic Ideas
⚡️ The US Wind Turbine Database
Ben Hoen from the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab gave a lightning talk at Geo2050 about this project, a map and database of the operational wind generation capacity in the US. The map currently reports the country producing around 90 gigawatts of wind power. They also publish the raw dataset for download.
🧬 Interview with Bruce Sterling
One of my favorite science fiction authors. Talks about his work, industrial design, speculative architecture, and risk models.
💵 The Clash of Economic Ideas
Russ Roberts (of EconTalk) and Lawrence White discuss economists of the last hundred years and the variances in their ideas.
