Awesome Remote Solar-Powered Internet Office is Awesome
This is quite likely the hottest day of the year in San Francisco, so I had to post this upgrade to Coffee & Power's remote, solar panel-powered Internet office. Not happy with running it from Hayes Valley park, Philip Rosedale and other folks who once helped launch Second Life went on to launch their operation on a beach near Golden Gate Bridge. "The solar panels are from Global Solar, I think they're called PowerFLEX," my friend Jeska Dzwigalski, who was a community manager at Linden Lab and now works for Philip at the micro-work startup, tells me. "They're rated at 300 watts per panel. Enough to power six laptops. We're going to try them out at different locations as C&P Solar Popup Offices. We blogged it yesterday."
