I’m very familiar with the “people problem” to which you refer. Wind energy is normally done in remote areas where the wind blows and nobody wants to live. Why does nobody want to live there? Because it’s too windy! I once had a guy who declared in no uncertain terms he wanted to play a big role in my wind energy effort. He’d call me and talk for hours about all the things he would do, or could do. He’d keep coming up with titles reflecting his “future ccomplishments” with SuperTurbine™. “Head of Fabrication” sounded nice until we found out he was bothered by the sound of machinery, and not so good at designing and building things. The last “position” he tried to carve out for himself was to come up here to the Mojave Desert, and find a commercial building willing to let us build a wind energy system on the roof. This was before I relocated everything up here. He drove up here once or twice, poked round a bit, and, finally realizing the true nature of wind energy as a rural pursuit, he told me “There aren’t enough nice restaurants up there”, and decided he was better off developing electric trucks in a super-populated area, instead of wind energy in a remote location. Ironically, we’ve seen a multitude of new restaurants built up here in the last few years, since we are on the crest of the wave of development, near the 15 Freeway, that goes from L.A. to Las Vegas, in the vast open area that inspired the “Roadrunner” cartoons, where you can see for a hundred miles. People fly airplanes without a license up here, and there are dry lake beds where you can drive as fast as you want - no speed limit. Areas where there is nobody and nothing, as far as the eye can see. Now I thought this guy would be an electric-truck billionaire by now, but that fell apart too. Something about having to DO things rather than just talking about it comes into play at some point when developing new technologies. He raised money and got some of the first electric trucks onto the road, but seems unable to produce any more these days. I think what’s really going on here is something like this: people are very comfortable living in comfortable areas, comfortable saying “we will build this”, “we will solve that”, but the minute they see the reality of what they are facing, and all the hard work it entails, whether it is the development of the concept, the development of the actual product, the manufacturing and distribution of the product, or even just getting to a remote location required for testing, it’s too much for the people used to sitting in their comfortable chair, clicking on their smart-phone, taking selfies, having the internet and computer magically “solve” all their problems, because as long as they remain self-straight-jacketed in their padded-cell fantasy-world, where all accomplishments are hypothetical and “in the future”, they can find more computer-bound financial people to give them money. But the reality is nobody wants to bother even going to a place where they can freely develop airborne wind energy solutions, let alone actually moving there and doing it. Far easier to keep making excuses, issuing press-releases for every mundane event such as “renting office space”, while never getting out of the “comfort zone”, which would mean a bunch of guys out in the middle of nowhere, rolling up their sleeves and getting something working well on a daily basis. Forget it: no nice restaurants.
