Michael Jackson died yesterday prompting a DDOS attack on the worlds news orginizations and Google. Whatever became of him doesn’t change the fact he knew what he was doing when it came to putting on a performance and singing a song. I’m going to share one my favorite facts about him, he had a patent for shoes.
No wires just shoes.
It’s fascinating to watch these videos, but boy is he ever weird.
Found these from like 3 moves ago. Good times.
This is a talk from “America’s Greenest CEO”. He’s transformed his petroleum intensive carpet tile company’s business practices into a sustainable business practices. That’s a fancy way to say he’s shifted from taking from the earth to make carpet (which eventually ends up as trash) and started paying attention to the whole cycle of his goods. So there’s less waste, carbon, and martrials. He tasked his company to figure out a way to use sustainable methods to sell, make and recycle carpet. The whole endeavor saved his company from the crash of 2000 and has proven to be quite profitable by design and not just on “green” marketing. (Although I’m sure it helps.)
He strives to be a model for a way to have an industry that doesn’t strip the earth of its resources but keeps control of the entire cycle of it’s goods and byproducts. Of course he does a much better job explaining it. My favorite axiom from the speech is a simple one.
If it exists then it is possible.
I’m cleaning up some old draft posts that I never wrote out. This one is even more relevant today then when I planned to write it.
I own a dirfwear wallet, and while it isn’t perfect at blocking rfid tags at close range (3-4 inches) its a dam good walet and will stop distance and opportunistic sniffing. Like near a turnstyle or door frame. I met one of the creators at the last hope and played with a machine he had there setup for reading rfid cards at a distance.
