Observations of our crazy world from the seat of a bicycle.

The Story of Stuff...
Watched this tonight and thought I'd pass it on. It's a web-based film on where our stuff (ipods, computers, bikes, cars, etc.,) come from and where they go. Told in simple and entertaining plain speech, I found it pretty compelling. It's a little long at 20 minutes for a casual glance, but anything worthwhile takes some time.
I think the most interesting part for me was the Consumption module, when she spoke about planned and perceived obsolences. I highly recommend it.
