Episode 1 back on October 19, 2006 featured the $50 solar-powered MightyLight.

$25 for two BoGo Lights (top) sure beats $50 — at least where I learned math.

If you decide to buy, make sure to tell Mark Bent, the grand panjandrum of SunNight Solar, the company marketing the BoGo Light, that I sent you — then he'll understand why you're so confused.

Featuring low-priced solar- and self-powered devices is not just my inner Good Samaritan speaking: rather, it's my barely-containable excitement about the hundreds of millions of potential new bookofjoe fans in Africa, waiting for electricity to finally enable them to plug into the internet and get on board here.

In five years, when I look at my statistics maps I'm hoping to see Africa no longer invisible — as is currently the case (below)

but, rather, lit up like Shinjuku.

w00t!
