I thought I would change the layout of the blog to hopefully make it a bit more readable. I had noticed, with the use of various heading levels I was adding in, it was getting a bit hard to understand. Hopefully, this will improve things a bit. Comments and feedback are always welcome.
At the moment I am busy studying for a couple of exams coming up at the end of the week and still looking for work. Anyone got any hot leads for an old Information Technology guy turned enviro-activist?? 😉
So, this will be a short post today with two links. The first is in the category of Good Stuff that people are doing, reflecting the undercurrents of change in the world. I am referring to the new Movement for Happiness. So what is it about? From the website:
Increasingly people ask, “What is progress?” For fifty years we have aimed at higher incomes – and got them. Yet over the same period there has been no increase in happiness (in Britain or the U.S.), as measured by surveys. And there has been a shocking rise in the number of unhappy and disturbed children. Clearly we have got our priorities wrong and our society needs a radical change of tack
Hmm, could be interesting. It is all very new and they a planning a big launch in September. I’ll keep an eye on it.
The second link is a great video called “Bet against the American Dream“. It is a musical rundown of the whole Goldman Sachs Credit Default Swap debacle, presented in the vein of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers”. Check it out! I love this vid!
