Good points on food safety.
 
A great article from +Max Goldberg on Non-GMO's. You really need to read this one. He nails it on the head.

Well there's a concept.  I would love, love, love to jump into this group.  But not quite just yet, not here in southern California...

Trends indicate that Norrington, who works in marketing for the nonprofit American Legacy Foundation, is one of many Americans who have recently decided to use their cars less, sell them or not buy one in the first place. Whether motivated by convenience, cost or other phenomena, Americans are driving less and traffic is easing up, a growing number of studies show.

To think of urban planning within the constructs of business and creating a new city in the same fashion as a startup company...well it kinda blows my mind a little.  In a good way.

With that said, done the right way, I can see great value in this.  After all, many older cities in the US were built in the same fashion.

True.  There's a lot of room for corruption in the same capacity as there is in a business.  The only solutions I could see would be in where the citizens of this town would participate in a sort of city-coop, or collective ownership of the city, therefore policy could be voted on in a truly democratic way.  Then again, public vote can always be bought and sold.

I need one of these lights ASAP. I want to put it in the middle of my chest so when I see my cardiologist I can tell him that I have the iron man power supply and no longer need his services.

Very interesting. Pity that this technology doesn't work as claimed. If it worked, they would be rich and famous already.

Meanwhile, in Louisiana, they love the fracking and Entergy (the state's major power company) has no plans to use renewable energy sources for another 20 years.
