GEO2 Technologies on Wired.com

This was the MIT Energy 2.0 conference. I helpd organize it and just spent a wonderful day at it. Vinod Khosla was simply marvellous in his presentation and the content. He has moved away from his hard-push on conventional corn-to-ethanol pitch and is now focused on several other technology ideas that I totally support. He has some great things cooking and my suggestion to the dozens of VCs swarming the conference, follow his lead in those area….

GEo2 Technologies also had an exhibition booth at the Technology Showcase and got some serious attention. Our scooter filter was a super hit. Now if we could just convince the regulators in countries like Taiwan, China, India, Thailand to use this filter on all their small engines (new or old), especially the 2-stroke ones.

We also just got feature on a wired.com blog. There is also a crazy picture of me on it so check it out: http://blog.wired.com/cars/2007/03/energy_alpha_ge.html

Energy = Alpha Geeks + Uber Wonks

Hello. My name-a Borat… er… Mark Anderson. I’m going to be liveblogging a weekend-long energy conference at MIT called “Energy 2.0.”

Now don’t let that overused 2.0 thing dissuade you from the goings-on. There are some groundbreaking ideas being presented and discussed here, in keeping with MIT President Susan Hockfield’s recent mandate that the campus take a global leadership role in solving one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century: Where will we get our energy from in 10 years, in 25 years, in 50 years — and how will we do all this without also toasting and choking the planet?

    Bilal,
    Congratulations on being featured on Wired.com.

    Your company’s idea about filters for 2 stroke engines sounds great. Hopefully it will be used to reduce the emissions problem.
    I will review your website and get in touch with you about some ideas.
    Could you please provide a summary (or a link) to what Mr Khosla talked about at the conference?
