Not sure if this has been posted yet, but here's a really fascinating interview of Chamath Palihapitiya, who's the found of Social Capital. He has a super interesting and frank conversation about his pursuit of capital inside of capitalism and how he pursues money for social change:

This guy would fit right in here. I think he's hilarious with his deadpan humor.

This guy is awesome. Even more entertaining than the Applied Science dude. He is almost certainty an ENTJ given that Te dominates all his videos along with Ni-like understanding/recall/purpose (..and too smooth at presentation to be an INTJ).

The Post Apocalyptic Inventor

Focuses on repairing and/or reusing or improving items purchased as scrap from junkyard. I linked to one video that has a good beginning to setting the tone. Has other videos besides repair.

Woah... That is really interesting on a number of levels. The aspect of the person spending their time after retirement to move this forward and then turning it into a business is interesting. The idea itself is really cool -- I'd seen this for heating in New Mexico with the earth ships but I'd read they don't work so well in the upper midwest (USA) climate. But they don't use the tubes underground. Very very cool. And the potential application as he points out to deliver local citrus in an area nobody grows citrus...

@SWB - Yea this was a sort of mind-blow video for me and got me dreaming again. His design can be much improved by have an earthen berm on the north wall. I just need some land!

He has a couple other videos on his youtube channel and in one he mentions it was about -1 F outside and was 38 F inside which is pretty impressive for nothing but cool ground air heating. According to his site he has had to have supplemental heating 3 times in the last 23 years....

@cmonkey I started dreaming too. I was left thinking about how well it would work in Michigan. It seems like there is a lot of low land here that pools water. Or if it's not your land, it's like that down the road. I guess one needs to look very carefully at elevation and how the potential land fits into the drainage of the greater area (along with looking for southern exposure).

As a vocation, it touches on a lot of interesting topics (propagation, interesting non-local plants) and has interesting aspects like being year round. I noticed how his was attached to the house so I would guess he could go out there and do his thing in the winter without even stepping outside.
