Yeah, and it just spun around a little bit and stopped.  It didn't even light a lightbulb.

...It didn't even light a lightbulb.
You used a standard lightbulb, right? Because it takes around 40 volts to make a standard lightbulb start to dimly light up (it depends a bit on the amount of watt though), while spinning a fan will only give you a very low voltage when you're not spinning it at a high speed (the exact voltage depends on the speed of the fan and the strength of the magnets inside them).
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)
