Running With a Podcast

This morning, for a change, I listened to a podcast instead of tunes. The BBC has a great podcast called The Digital Planet.
"Find out how the digital revolution is changing our lives!"
One of the topics was about using solar panels to generate electricity. Apparently, there are remote areas in the world where folks have cell phones but no access to electricity.
They (SolarAid) are setting up rudimentary solar panels constructed of glass and crocodile clips that work - Kewl!
I wonder if they are using any of the millions of cell phones that were discarded by North Americans?

Today's run - 6.4 miles in the blazing sun
