Strategic Sustainability, and other worthy themes of our time

Monday, June 12, 2006

Terry Gips of Alliance for Sustainability in Minneapolis offers this heads up:

Al Gore will be discussing Inconvenient Truth and Global Warming on Larry King Live tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 8 pm.

(And Ann Coulter tonight, if you can possibly stand it!)

If you haven't seen it (Inconvenient Truth, not Coulter), see it now. It's important. College Republican shenanigans notwithstanding.

Coming to you today from Google's GeoDeveloper Day -- the pre-event to the Where 2.0 conference tomorrow and Wednesday. Stay tuned for details -- unless I get so engroessed I forget to blog -- and most likely for a longer piece soon on WorldChanging.

The Google and event focus: looking at the intersection of "search, maps and geolocation."

My focus: the intersection of that with sustainability -- and sustainable business -- opportunities. And in particular, the intersection of place information and flow information and both businesses and communities.

Larry: "Since you can't be in more than one place at a time, these tecchnologies enable you to act as if you are."

GoogleEarth developers: 30,000
GoogleEarth downloads: 100,000,000 unique individuals

News: GoogleEarth 4 released today (Beta), simultaneously Windows/Mac/Linux

On to the "mashup and KML showcase"!
