Harnessing the Wind

William Kamkwamba has told his amazing story of ingenuity at TED here and here. Kamkwamba, as a 14 year old in a village in Malawi, saw a photo in a book of a windmill.  Using whatever materials he could find, he built his own windmill to provide electricity for his family.  Here he speaks with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.
