fuct.com, some weird stuff from the pioneering "street" clothing brand... just a little bit bitter maybe? Almost a textbook case of a pioneer not getting proper respect, but it'd be nice to see them handle it a bit better...

Guardian Unlimited Business | | Rolling out the green carpet Another interview with Ray Anderson of Interface Carpet. Is this the only green business story there is too tell? It's a good story but I've heard this one WAY too many times now, and the lack of a follow up is frustrating. The car share business might be one, but so far they seem to lack a good story/ pr person / charismatic spokesperson / whatever is needed to get interesting press...

Lunch over IP: Global Federalism: what if the big cities start acting on global problems? Interesting idea, especially since cities governments seem to have a tendency to be more open and liberal than federal ones. Ultimately it's a proposal to let the urban nodes network around the artificial borders of nation states.

PSFK: MySpace is Over psfk on the obvious but for the most part unspoken. That said I think the decay of this thing will be rather slow and interesting. Like usenet, bbses, web bulletin boards and Friendster, online social forms like MySpace have a tendency to live long past their peak points, and continue to be highly relevant to the core of continued users...

Treehugger: live|work: "I have a dream..." It makes a great point but the last bit is so painful I can't even read it, sorry Tamara. It doesn't matter how important somethinks their issue is, splicing it into Dr. King's words is just sacrilegious in my book.

Banksy/Paris video, have to say that while this feels like a proper evolution for Banksy, it also feels like it might be giving Paris better PR for a flop albumn than she deserves. What are the chances this is a stunt paid for by the record label?
