Bicycles for the Mind

July 19, 2011

A common assumption is that raising living standards in the third world means everyone needs to be driving an SUV and cooking in the kitchen of tomorrow. In fact, modest changes can make a huge difference. A solar cell the size of a paperback book, plus an LED the size of a pea, means a child can read at night. A bicycle means a child can get safely to school.

Small changes, infinite difference in people’s lives. It brings to mind one of my favorite quotes of all time by Steve Jobs….

    I love biking… among the most energy efficient modes of transportation ever devised. Simplicity itself.
