Hey, look at this! Thanks to http://jippy.typepad.com/ for the happiest news this century.
Water Pumps powered,
not by the virtual or literal enslavement of women,
but by children at play.
What an inspiration! Clean, eco-friendly, fun-powered renewable technology.
And the water is clean, drinkable, and without disease.
See Playpumps International for the dénouement.
There has to be more of this type of community development out there...
If you can better that, I want to hear about it!
