  • Why Doesn’t The Stimulus Include Money For Painting Roofs And Roads White? – Painting 100 sq feet of roof space white offsets one ton of CO2 emissions. Seems as though that's an easy and feasible action that could be taken to curb global warming. It's also an argument that Bjorn Lomborg makes in "Cool It" for what that's worth.
  • End the University as We Know It – – Great article about the need to end the fracturing of university education. The idea of thematic education is quite appealing and something that I think could truly create some innovation in modern education. The idea about professors collaborating is also a good one and one that I can't see a downside to. (via @danielbachhuber)
  • Honda Insight – Let It Shine on Vimeo – A brilliant ad from Honda for the new insight. Makes me wish for two things 1) that more companies produced ads like this and 2) that newspapers could inspire companies to run ads like this. If it's actually enjoyable to watch an ad then somethings going right.
