This week at lunch, thanks to the good offices of the IBM Green Team, we got a chance to check out the handiwork of one of our colleagues, who has converted his car to run on vegetable oil.
Just because he could.
SO cool. Here is Byron Garcia's story, in his own words:
It's all kinds of smart, green, thrifty, geeky, innovative, roll
What's not to love?

We finally got some rain here in New England over the past couple of days .... some much-needed rain.
It's been so dry here that my backyard stream, usually burbling with snow melt, and filled with a chorus of spring peepers at this time of year, has been bone dry.
Until yesterday, when I gleefully snapped this shot of the stream running once again.
And my good friend and colleague Ben Hardill asked if I had recorded it for Creek Watch.
What is Creek Watch? Another wonderful, geeky, crowd-sourcing mobile solution from our friends at IBM Research.
Creek Watch is an iPhone application that enables you to help monitor the health of your local watershed. Whenever you pass by a waterway, spend a few seconds using the Creek Watch application to snap a picture and report how much water and trash you see. We aggregate the data and share it with water control boards to help them track pollution and manage water resources.
Honestly, how cool is that?
And it's FREE!
