links of interest — 9.27.07

I ran across several different links in the last day or two that I thought were worth passing along:

  • Message in a Bottle (Fast Company) – I read this article in the magazine a few months ago and made a note to mention it when it was freely available online. Its an eye opening read about the global impact of our water bottle consumption habits.
  • Kitna seeks help from above (ESPN) – Usually, the title alone would be enough to turn me off on this article, but Todd Hiestand passed it along. I trust his judgment so I read it. Glad I did. It’s a pretty beautiful story about how Kitna’s faith seems to be reshaping his team for the better.
  • the faith + hope + love series – My friend Blaine has created a series of t-shirts titled “faith, hope and love”. I dig the designs, and being the merchant of cool that I am, I think you should buy one.
  • XOGiving.org – The “One Laptop Per Child” effort has rolled out this site where you can purchase two of these special laptops for $399. One comes to you, and the other goes to a child in a developing nation. (OK, I might not be a merchant of cool, but I am a tech maven, so how could I not pass this along?) (HT: Justin Baeder)
  • Please start posting again… Twitter is wierd and very un aesthetically pleasing. Tee Hee…

  • Love the idea of the laptop for every child but that is probably just because I love computers.
