Pardon the interruption, but this is for a good cause. In mid-November, I’ll be on a panel at Greenbuild called "Green Blogs and the Built Environment" with industry leading bloggers from The Green Workplace, Treehugger, Green Buildings NYC, and Building Green TV. The general idea of the panel is to discuss how the environmental movement is using blogs to collect information, share ideas, and collaborate in new ways. In preparation for the panel, we’ve developed a very short survey to ask you how blogging impacts the built environment. It’ll take no time really, but the information is seriously helpful and we’ll discuss the results during the panel. Thanks in advance for you time and we’ll see you in Boston!!
Google has just announced a new project: Project 10^100 (pronounced "Project 10 to the 100th"), which is a global call for ideas to change the world by helping as many people as possible. Here’s how it works. You submit your idea by October 20th. Google will cull through everything and post 100 ideas. Starting on January 27, 2009, the world starts voting on those to choose 20 semi-finalists. From there, an advisory board will choose 5 finalists. Then, Google will spend at least $10 M implementing those final 5 ideas.
How about kicking out a shout to the newly established blog by EcoSteel? I was emailing with EcoSteel’s Kelvin Findlay about their new projects and the blog came up. So I start looking through the first few posts and, of course, this Venice Live/Work home caught my eye. I mean, how can it not? Apparently the home is ready to go in California and EcoSteel is bidding out the contractor work at the moment.
