Green Twitter - Environmental Resources

Sent to you by 'Nette via Google Reader: Green Twitter - Environmental Resources via (Anti) Social Development by Kim Woodbridge on 6/6/08

photo credit: TeamEki On May 21, 2008 many Twitter users participated in a Twit-Out in protest to the many problems the service has been having recently. In response Sarah Perez, of ReadWriteWeb, wrote How to Use Social Media for Social Change. Sarah thought that the anger users were displaying toward the Twitter outages and instability could have been directed in a more positive manner toward social causes.I was pleased to see this article because I was feeling the same sentiment. I am addicted to and dependent on Twitter but it is a free service. And then I think about everything going on in the world and realize that Twitter hiccups are trivial in light of war, famine, food and gas prices, and the degradation of the environment. Personally, I'm trying to stay focused on the big picturePostings on Twitter, however, are just a, hopefully, smal…

Geek Girl Blogs Podcasting Series will be here soon!
On Friday I was lucky enough to track down Bronwen Clune Founder & CEO of Norg Media to be the first interviewee for our Geek Girl Blogs PodCasting series talking about starting & running a Web 2.0 Business in Australia.
Being the first one, I have to admit I was really excited, but I also had a case of frst time jitters to begin with - luckily that faded as we got into it!

We are going to be running these monthly and covering topics that are both technical & non technical in an attempt to provide inspiration & support to women working in the IT industry, female students and younger women considering a career in IT. We are going to be interviewing Female Role Models in the IT industry, highlighting some of the amazing work that they are doing, and also talk about issues that affect women working in IT.

Coming up we have Damana Madden talking a…

partial spread of food and drink

I'd work every Saturday if they fed us like this. Coffee and pasteles for breakfast, CPK for lunch, with dessert and imported water ... well, that was what CPK had. I HIGHLY rec' the Jamaican jerk pizza from CPK and their vegetarian salad. I was almost full off the salad alone.

WWdN: In Exile: classic photos redone in lego

WWdN: In Exile: classic photos redone in lego: Fans of Lego, photography, design, history, or things that are just plain awesome* will love this photoset on Flickr, where Flickr user Balakov has recreated famous photographs, from the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima to Maradona's infamous Hand of God, using Lego minifigures and close-up photography.

Links to the original photos are included, so you can fully enjoy how incredibly awesome this is.

I'd like to point out that Balakov has released all of these images under a Creative Commons license, and is offering prints for sale.

Come on, seriously: how much does this rule?

upon reflection

the last few days have been tumultuous, confusing, lonely, and a myriad of other feelings that have ultimately left me emotionally and physically drained. Last night I received some respite as well as affirmation and assurance that I am not the nutcase I often feel like. the lonliness is the worst. not knowing which friends to trust, or who even have time to listen to my misgivings and self-doubts, no one to talk to completely open and honestly. At least I am FINALLY aware of the type of decisions I make when I'm lonely, stressed out, and down on myself. Not acting on those impulses is getting harder and harder. and there's no one to lean on when I'm at wit's end. my spirit needs rest and restoration. my self-esteem is shot, and i feel like i have nothing left to give. where do i go from here?


like i said in a tweet, ro and angela are DA BOMB! and Definitely worth the trip to Lancaster

amazing - women who do their makeup on train

Everyday I see women doing their make-up on the train. Sometimes the transformation is quite amazing. I mean, they come on with nothing on their faces, and by the time their stop comes up, they have foundation, blush, eye shadow, and the kicker, eye-liner and mascara! I have enough trouble doing the eye stuff in my bathroom, no way I could do it on the train. And they do it all using those tiny little mirrors!

Hats off to you ladies, you are simply amazing.
