Glad to be here opening up the new year with you. Last year was exciting, but next year is going to be incredible. We’re starting 2011 with a newly revamped website, a new focus, and all sorts of ambitions. Stay tuned … in the mean time, read through our shout out to 2010 with these compilations:
As a community committed to thought leadership and the pursuit of it, I want to take a short moment to mention Opportunity Green 2010, the world's leading cross-industry, sustainable business conference. Ranked as the #1 Green Conference by Google, Opportunity Green is at the nexus of the connections and collaborations that are vital to propelling new business models in a green economy.
For the fourth year, Jetson Green has teamed up with West Coast Green as a media partner. We're excited to invite you to West Coast Green 2010 – the world’s leading event on green innovation for the built environment. As a friend of Jetson Green, you are invited to attend this conference with a special access pass here or click the image above.
I want to thank you for entering the 400W wind generator contest that we ran last week. It drew close to 400 entries from folks all around the country, and I enjoyed viewing your links and hearing about your projects. Seems clear that there’s demand for small wind in the right location, and the following winner should be able to put this turbine to good use.
This site is honored to be named with several other innovators on Treehugger's Best of Green 2010 in the Design + Architecture category for Best Design Twitter Feed and Reader's Choice Design Twitter Feed. Shout out to the folks at Treehugger and definitely @lloydalter, who has been a friend of this site for several years running.
When disaster hit Haiti, readers said we should team up with some of the folks behind the many container projects we've featured to get shelter to the disaster areas. It seems like a good idea, and PFNC Global Communities makes an interesting sub-$10,000 container home. But it may not be a good idea.
In disasters, housing relief should include some combination of temporary and permanent solutions, and I'm not sure whether a container home would work as either one in Haiti. We believe something like this Shelter Box could provide some temporary relief.
