It's good, thanks. The only thing I don't like is the example for 7. We need now to cut down FEWER trees not sharpen the saw! I get the point though! :-)

You've never seen buildings like this. The stunning bamboo homes built by Elora Hardy and her team in Bali twist, curve and surprise at every turn. They defy convention because the bamboo itself is so enigmatic. No two poles of bamboo are alike, so every home, bridge and bathroom is exquisitely unique. In this beautiful, immersive talk, she shares the potential of bamboo, as both a sustainable resource and a spark for the imagination. "We have ha...

Hi, what you've been saying is spot on and a fantastic contribution, please keep at it Russell. Some lines I wrote instead of headbutting the floor repeatedly, I’m no poet but maybe someone will enjoy or relate... 
Hearts of fear, compliance and avarice. 
Agony, heartache, shame and numb clarity, alright U Jack?
Repugnance ratchets, the pendulum to love rises.
Another brick in the wall, Britain fades its call.

Dave Isay opened the first StoryCorps booth in New York’s Grand Central Terminal in 2003 with the intention of creating a quiet place where a person could honor someone who mattered to them by listening to their story. Since then, StoryCorps has evolved into the single largest collection of human voices ever recorded. His TED Prize wish: to grow this digital archive of the collective wisdom of humanity.

Excellent. Is there any way to stop these tools being appropriated by ruthless and parasitic marketing organisations? What is the effect of constant leverage through advertising of our empathetic responses? I'm thinking in particular of Sainsbury's despicable (but fairly common under current status quo) Christmas ad in UK where they used football players in WW1 trenches sharing Christmas to sell their supermarket... probably after some of their marketing team read about this kind of research...

Great stuff. The way forward. It's probably very efficient in terms of spreading the word to put cool sustainable stuff like this in nightmarish places like Las Vegas which attract people who have a lot of current transactional resources (ie currently money). Perhaps, like the Gideons did for religion we should be producing some kind of updated John Seymour (e)book to spread far and wide...

Cassetteboy, you’re a genius. Brilliant contribution. Highlights for me:
0:40 “Take every penny from the hands of the many and give everything to the few”
1:13 “And as my chums move their money offshore, I am the one holding open the door”
1:20 Farage madness; cruel footage. The poor man is indeed a dangerous lunatic.

Today, a single email can launch a worldwide movement. But as sociologist Zeynep Tufekci suggests, even though online activism is easy to grow, it often doesn't last. Why? She compares modern movements — Gezi, Ukraine, Hong Kong — to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and uncovers a surprising benefit of organizing protest movements the way it happened before Twitter.
