These are my links for March 12th:

  • It’s Really Simple; Be Valuable and You Will Be Valued – the paradox of this, of course, is finding or estimating one's self-worth.
  • Google Reader starts a conversation – You can now comment on my Shared Items from Google Reader…
  • Who killed the electric grid? – How many extra power plants do we need to build if we introduce electric cars on a large scale? According to ecotech advocates, that matter is solved: none. Electric vehicles can be charged at night.

    Many power plants have a surplus of energy during the night ("off-peak production capacity") because demand is low and generators keep spinning. Therefore, if we all start driving electric cars, oil consumption will plummet to zero and electricity production will remain the same.

    However, not all electric vehicles will be charged at night – and it takes a surprisingly small amount of fast-charging cars during peak hours to take the electricity infrastructure down.

  • Why We Immunize – details on the most common immunizations: Hepatitis B, Polio, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Chicken Pox…. Makes me want to get re-immunized!
  • The Seven Deadly Sins of my spam trap – made me chuckle…

These are my links for March 11th:

  • Greeble Earth – reminds me of my Terra Fermi map with 3D buildings added.
  • The Balloon Project: Amsterdam and Berlin Aerial Imagery – The Balloon Project is charming in its simplicity – Luca and Ira send a video camera up into the sky hanging from helium balloons chasing it from below on bikes – and the results are fantastic.
  • The Guardian Open Platform – The Guardian announced the launch of The Guardian Open Platform, a suite of services designed to give access for developers to Guardian content. Of course, this follows hot on the heels of The New York Times’ API releases, but where is the Washington Post?

  • The Housing Bubble, Mapped – Two maps, one from 2000 and the other from 2007, show the share of Americans taking on huge new debt to buy a home increasing dramatically across the country. By 2007, the national average was 9% of all borrowers, a rate higher even than at the peak of the U.S. housing boom in 2006.
  • Rachel Austin – She e-mailed me about her most recent work. If you have a moment check it out.
  • Copenhagen Cornering – I am enjoying the bicycle-in-motion photos lately

  • AE11: New Wave Bunkers – "Another recently completed New Wave Bunker is the United States Capitol Visitor Center (CVC), an over-budget and long-delayed entrance on the east side of the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Plans for the large 580,000-sf (54,000-sm) complex actually started before September 11, though the decision to bury it three stories underground may have come about from the attacks on that day, not just as goals to be invisible and to not structurally disturb the 140-year old building."
  • Always a fan of MOMS… – Makes me want to call my mom :-)
  • Professors Smith and Wessen: South Carolina Student Arrested After Discharging Gun in Class – another reason why I don't like guns. Even Bicycle Rifles…

These are my shared links for March 2nd

  • Global Piracy Map – Arrrrrrrrrrrr
  • el tiburon – street artist Blu completes his newest piece "El Tiburon" or in English,"The Shark." From a distance it appears to be a large shark with it's mouth open, but upon closer inspection, the skin of the shark is composed of 100 Euro bills.

    Predatory lending- The loan shark- Money will bite you if you don't watch out.

These are my links for February 25th:

  • Conundrum: Media Companies and Social Media – The paradox lies in this: As content becomes increasingly channel-agnostic (due in large part to, and perpetuated by, social media) and the demand for ubiquitous content across multiple channels and services rises– media companies find themselves in increasingly precarious positions as ultimately, their business models are extremely channel-dependent.
  • Scratchers Calendar Design – I still haven't made my 2009 calendars yet. Scratch that.
  • My Google Adsense Income – a fake Google Adsense Generator to show how much money you are making. Make sure you click on the ads.
  • Farming Fuels – As such, algae are able to yield thirty times more energy per acre than corn or soybean crops, theoretically producing over 10,000 gallons of fuel per acre (recent closed loop systems claim to produce between 100,000 – 150,000 gallons per acre). To put this in perspective, soy produces 50 gallons of oil per acre per year; canola, 150 gallons; and palm, 650 gallons.
  • Peux-t-on rire de tout avec une carte ? – Photos of the Europa map… "l’art c’est la liberté, la liberté d’expression est un principe fondateur de la démocratie ». « Se rendre compte des préjugés est une condition sine qua non pour s’en débarrasser"
  • About those missing Predator drones: It wasn't censorship after all – So yesterday's link about Google censorship was wrong… I'm skeptical.
  • Fenty's Late Night on Larry King Live – The LAST chapter? So, no senators, no statehood, nothing beyond the current bill? [I added a comment with Mayor Fenty's reply to Larry King's final question]
  • #19226 – This is a kinetic sculpture of a biker in… – The wheels are moved by the flow of the water.
