Via the goddessly  - a brilliant idea in Bangladesh: an NGO has converted boats into mobile digital libraries, and thusly won a Bill and Melinda Gates Award. According to the ALA report, "The boats, which anchor at remote villages, rely on generators or solar energy and mobile phones for internet access." This just rocks. Recently, Nicholas Negroponte at MIT had the idea of providing African and Asian children with $100 laptops and free internet access - the program is supposed to launch in September.

Could we do that in
the Bronx?

As we struggle to squeeze
oil from stones, it would be worthwhile to realize that our most valuable resources are in fact the future minds that will pilot the world. And there's no guarantee they will come from the US. Increasingly, rooting for the US will be like rooting for the Lakers or the Giants - as my ex used to say, it's rooting for a corporation, not a meaningful scrappy team effort of your boys from the hometown....Alliances are shifting now, and of course it's making everybody anxious and uncomfortable, if not downright obstreperous.

Also via Tess, things that are supposed to make this blog
massively popular. Excuse me while I do the necessary: sex, alien abduction, Oprah, Tom Cruise, Lindsay Lohan, Pat Robertson, Dick Cheney, Mark of the Beast, Armageddon, free money, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt. Sex. Oprah.
