This is probably the most interesting book I’ve purchased in a long time. It’s a massive compendium of ideas and tools for making the world a better place. But don’t listen to me, listen to the rumours on the inkernets about it. Or ask the google about it. You know the drill.
BTW, I’ve opened comments again. It seems the spambots have slowed to about 200 comment spams a day. Down from several thousand… Ugh.
What goes into a can of Easy Cheese?

Remember that dude who crashed his ~$1.5 million dollar Ferrari Enzo in LA? Wired has a fascinating story about this incredibly sketchy dude.
The “print” version (all on one page)
The web version (split into 6 pages with pics)
Here is a video of the enzo crash:
Music: Zero 7 feat. JosÃ© GonzÃ¡lez â€“ Futures
Director: Robert Seidel
This low-budget video was done within just 2Â½ weeks for the planned DVD of Zero 7â€™s â€œThe Gardenâ€. The video visualizes crushed objects representing a diffuse future of wishes and desires which shape over time. Visible artefacts and the rough synchronisation add subtle emotions to the uncertain processâ€¦ Side note: Another video for the song was commissioned and got directed by Duckeye, as this one was too uncommercial…

The Story of Shooting War
New York, NY The year is 2011, and Jimmy Burns, a young anti-corporate blogger has just seen his Williamsburg apartment blown to bits by yet another terrorist attack on New York City. Heâ€™s recorded the gruesome scene on his videoblog camera footage Burns beams live to a freaked-out world and that makes him an overnight media sensation. Exploited by his own network (Global News: â€œYour home for 24-hour terror coverageâ€), enraged by the terrorists, and determined to tell the American people the truth, Burns takes off for Iraq to get the real story of a war thatâ€™s been raging for more than eight years. SHOOTING WAR is written by Anthony Lapp, illustrated by Dan Goldman.
A web comic about a video blogger from the future. Wow, how nerd tastic?! I love it.
