Distributed Solar: The Democratizaton of Energy
- Busting Myths About Heat Pumps Heat pumps are perhaps the most efficient heating and cooling systems available. Recent literature distributed by utilities hawking natural gas and other sources use performance figures from heat pumps as they were available 15 years ago. See today’s.

the Dark Side Tensors
This is a fun motivating lecture: See also his A Student’s Guide to Vectors and Tensors, with related podcasts. It’s available on Kindle, by the way. (Save some trees.) eigenchris has another series of lectures on Tensors.
