Myself (editorial/photography), Dan Sweet (design/photography) and Dawson Hunter (video) went up to Seattle this weekend and met Malawian William Kamkwamba. He's a person you're not going to want to forget. I'm not going to get into his whole story right now (keep your eyes peeled on a future issue of brass), but eight years ago (at the age of 14) William built a windmill out of junkyard garbage and scraps to provide his house with electricity. He has since built two more windmills on his family property to pump water and provide additional power.
