I don't know about you, but I've been generally unimpressed with the increasingly technologizing of bikes lately. Until I came across SmartHalo. Rather than be impressive on the website but a complete pain in the ass to use in the real world, they really seem to have thought things through, making it unobtrusive and malleable to a range of people's needs, simply.

Something like this could be a huge boon to getting the undecided to get on a bike, and those already riding to do it more. 

One of the key things I see is it's increasing people's feelings of safety, protecting their bike from theft, and the device itself not being required to install/remove/install/remove whenever you're away your bike. What have you found in the smart bike realm that's interested you? Have you heard of SmartHalo?
In cities, biking is part of the urban mobility flow. We've given good reasons to bike since we began publishing. Now entrepreneurs think more people will bike if bikes are smarter via gadgets.

One major cause of global warming not on the agenda (so far, anyway) for the Paris climate talks: food waste. #climatechange   #foodwaste   #globalwarming  
Most of us don't think of food waste as a cause of global warming, but it's a significant one that also contributes to world hunger.

Sure, you can recycle them, but these ideas for how to reuse plastic bottles may extend their life just as much... #plasticbottles   #reuse   #diy  
Sure, you can recycle them, but why reuse plastic bottles to make things you can use around the house: from planters of all kinds to furniture and boats!

Melitta's new recyclable single-serve coffee pod - is that enough? #singleservecoffee   #recycling   #melitta  
Melitta USA has rolled out recyclable single-serve coffee pods, but if they don't work with recycling infrastructure, they'll still end up in the trash.

We had a fantastic experience! The repairman was able to arrive a bit early (and called ahead to check); once he got there, he got right to work and fixed our issues very quickly. I was very impressed...

One of my favorite places in town to get some work done, grab a cup of coffee, or meet someone for lunch. Love the fact that they provide details on the coffees they brew (roast, body, acidity). The food's always good, and reasonably priced. Only complaint I ever have is sometimes the air conditioner is going full bore and its freezing inside...
