Wired on Space Solar Power 

John Gartner, a reporter from Wired, called me last week about funding for space solar power. Apparently there was some money for it in 2001, but it disappeared somehow, without much outcry, into NASA's general budget. And I'm heading off to the SPS '04 conference in Spain next week, so we'll see if anything comes of that... good to have some advance publicity!

Out of Gas review with htimes 

My review finally came out in print now too...

The other book I've been reading on this is Vaclav Smil's Energy at the Crossroads - he has a lot of numbers, many seeming very useful (despite the typos) - but he seems to have a subtle bias in all his arguments that implies energy is not as important to the world economy as, in fact, one would discover from the actual numbers he uses. A little disappointing...
