I was doing some reading for work the other day, and saw an original handbill for the 1963 March on Washington event. And it had some details in it that sparked my curiosity, so I went googling for a higher resolution (i.e. more readable) version of the document, and found this website with a longer […]

There’s trash like urban tumbleweed because the city stopped street sweeping and removed corner trash cans. There’s drug dealing corner bars that go unchecked for generations. (until recently that is :-) But I’m not really wanting to focus on the negatives. (like parking during, and after a snow storm) What I want to focus on here for a little bit are the positives. And there are some seriously nice positives.

Can’t speak for it’s actual usefulness, as I don’t have an invite yet… but from the videos I’ve seen, it looks like it could be a really amazing new communication shift. Almost like going from paper letters to email… but I’ll hold off judgement until I actually get to try it out. :-)

Pomplamoose is basically a duo (and a happy couple btw) out of San Fran! She’s Nataly Dawn, saucy but demure, and smart… with a voice on her that makes you sit up and listen. And he’s Jack Conte, creative and free, and talented. (and the ladies at my work feel he’s a looker too!) And they make goddamn good music! And VideoSongs too! VideoSongs are basically WYSIWYG music.

That’s a lot of energy. Saw this really interesting article that tries to project the total surface area required to fuel that 2030 world with ONLY SOLAR PANELS!

C’mon Congress, get us some affordable healthcare!

So… last night, our President gave a speech about health care reform. t was really inspiring last night, hearing him speak to Congress. Directly to Congress itself! He really seemed to be trying to get the politics to be put aside, and try to get these Washington folks to bring us affordable healthcare! If you have an hour, the whole speach is here, but the good stuff starts around 20-25 minutes in.
