How Many Light Bulbs Can 1,500 Filipino Programmers Light?

Okay. I will outrightly say that I am not a rockstar at math so feel free to correct me. I summoned the help of Google and Wolfram Alpha for this quest. Take a look at the results.

How Many Light Bulbs Can 1,500
Filipino Programmers Light?

  • Wolfram Alpha says that 1,500 people can generate heat of 105 Kw.
  • Heat can produce electricity. (By steam. Not really saying that programmers generate hot gas.)
  • Assuming all of that heat generated is converted to electricity
  • Assuming each light bulb has wattage of  100 watts

Answer: 1,050 lightbulbs

That amount might not be enough to light the Eiffel Tower but surely enough to light a new career path for fellow Filipino IT professionals. How?
