Blogging the young windmill builder who rocked TEDGlobal

William Kamkwamba, the 19-year-old self-taught engineer who built a windmill power system for his family’s home in Malawi, was a star of TEDGlobal 2007. As reported by Ethan Zuckerman, several TEDsters have pledged to help him further his education.

Now you can follow William’s journey on his blog. Read about the windmill he built, his latest upgrades to his power system, and the people he is meeting who — like so many people at TEDGlobal and in the blog community — are impressed and inspired by what he’s achieved.
