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!

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.
