New SolarWindow™ Technology Introduction Video - New Energy Technologies
New Energy Technologies, Inc. is developing SolarWindow™ technology, a first-of-its-kind, see through technology capable of generating electricity on glass windows and flexible plastic. Utilizing organic photovoltaics (OPVs), SolarWindow™ technology harvests natural and artificial light energy, converting it to useable electricity. SolarWindow™ has the capacity to turn ordinary glass windows in America’s 5 million skyscrapers and commercial towers into power generators. Visit us at http://ift.tt/1fxCu1V for more information.

Physics 101: What Our Next President Needs to Know
Rich Muller, author of Physics for Future Presidents, argues that the next president can’t afford to be ignorant about the science behind terrorism, nuclear dangers, energy, space, and global warming. Muller, a MacArthur Fellow, Berkeley Lab physicist, and one of the most popular lecturers at UC Berkeley, discusses what it takes to survive in today’s increasingly dangerous world — information essential to the next commander-in-chief. He presented his talk Oct. 13, 2008.

Decoding Complexity: The Organizing Principles Behind our Economy [mirror]
The talk I gave at TEDxZurich on October 25, 2012. It was featured on TED.com on February 13, 2013:) http://ift.tt/12NARLX ***Corrections: - At 03:54 I blacked out (which was kindly cut by the editor:) and I forgot to say this: “You can then understand the complex system by simulating it in a computer. As an example, you need three simple rules to simulate swarming behavior: - Move in the same direction as your neighbor - Stay close to your neighbor, but avoid collisions If you think this is no big deal, think again. No one saw this coming. And to this day no one really knows why this is the way things are. It’s as if reality is giving us a big help in understanding how stuff works. Like the ‘miracle’ I mentioned before, that equations mirror the workings of the universe.” - At 09:02 I meant to say “center” not “core”. *** Links: -TED blog: http://ift.tt/YXz4Px -TEDxZurich: http://ift.tt/1kljue3 -Original video: http://ift.tt/1ea5ETB called “Who Controls the World: James B.
