Baby animal slideshow <3!

The first moments of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins as a fan-created comic. Beautifully done. I'm especially taken by the first page.

Writing through the revolution (pdf) I'm not so sure about his statements, exactly, but I rather want to read his book.

Warm fuzzy for crafty people!

Alternative to maternity leave

It only seems applicable to a narrow band of workers at the moment, but as a "breaking down the divide between the domestic and the workplace" concept, I really like it.

Yes, I'm at work. Not caring, because a tutor asked me to download this stuff for a CD, so it nearly counts, right? Besides this is riveting and electrifying and people should see it.

Architect and designer William McDonough asks what our buildings and products would look like if designers took into account "All children, all species, for all time." A tireless proponent of absolute sustainability (with a deadpan sense of humor), he explains his philosophy of "cradle to cradle" design, which bridge the needs of ecology and economics. He also shares some of his most inspiring work, including the world's largest green roof (at the Ford plant in Dearborn, Michigan), and the entire sustainable cities he's designing in China.

Facinating 20 minute video here

With 3.8 billion years of research and development on its side, nature has already solved problems that human designers and engineers still struggle with. In this inspiring talk, Janine Benyus provides fascinating examples of biomimicry -- the way humans mimic nature in the products we build and the systems we implement. And because the champion adapters in the natural world are, by definition, those that can survive without destroying the environment that sustains them, biomimicry can contribute to the long-term health of our planet.

I haven't watched this 20 minute video all the way through, but it looks just as good.
