I'd Like a Facelift, Suggestions?

100x100_question_2I love blogging.  I really do.  But maybe it’s because I look at my own blog everyday, I don’t know, but I’d like to mix it up a little bit.  Is that taboo for a fledgling blog?  What you see is 100% home-job by me.  I worked up the banner, picking through Photoshop the best I know how.  The sidebar content is 100% me, too.  Here are the constraints: (1) I’m still going to use Typepad, (2) I’m not going to hire anyone or pay anyone (at least not right now), and (3) that’s it.  I don’t really enjoy widgets, either.  I’m thinking about changing to the format with posts on the left and the two sidebars on the right.  Any thoughts?  I’m also thinking about a banner redesign.  Maybe a new logo?  It’s going to be consistent with the underlying framework of Jetson Green:  modern + green, with a business perspective.  Any thoughts?  Cool ideas?  Should I just keep it the way it is?  Be gentle…

BusinessWeek's Residential Green Tech: Wind Turbines, Geothermal, Solar Panels

There’s a slide show on BusinessWeek, which is part of a story written by Aili McConnon.  The story is called, "For Houses, It’s Glamorous to be Green."  For attribution, the link to the slide show is here, but I’ve taken the slide show images and text and created a photo loop through the filmloop software (shown above).  It’s pretty handy software, if I say so myself.  You can do a lot of editing in it and there are several different ways to display a show. 

In the slide show, there’s information on the StealthGen micro wind turbine, geothermal heating and cooling technology, Sharp’s solar panel easy-installation technology, and AeroVironment‘s Architectural Wind turbines (mentioned here before).  Easy learning, have a good weekend…
