fuck all this academic bullshit-

design me a contraption that is field-expedient, repairable by farmers, and installable anywhere, that is a self-contained algae ecosystem that has a consistent, measured oil output per day, per square meter of sunlight.
That's a difference to humanity- and a symbol carved on a wall by a primitive culture to denote god status-
...
I'm slightly upset by it, but I'm gaining confidence that what's needed now isn't Einstein/Newton/Hawking levels of revelation, instead it's Carnegie/Rockefeller levels of simple process organization and industrialization-
Railroads, mining, oil etc- nothing revolutionary- just process and packaging :)
