This is how it will happen. Let’s pick a day: June 22, 2012. It’s a gorgeous Friday afternoon in the Pacific Northwest, 75 degrees and sunny. It’s been raining for weeks, and in Seattle the freeways are jammed with people fleeing the city to enjoy the rare sunshine. Same story in Portland. Out on the coast, the beach towns are thrumming with tourists.
How a monster earthquake and resulting tsunami would affect the coast and cities of the Pacific NW.

Don't Honk and Wave, just Honk
Hey so I had this idea--what if people in swing states
drove around on election day through certain neighborhoods to honk out the vote. This would be driving and honking in a certain pattern. Now you might risk getting arrested for doing so, but if enough people did it, you wouldn't have to honk constantly to make people take notice. A bit like the ride of Paul Revere
Seems like depending on the areas you could drive out voters of different types.
The key is making people make the connection and say "why are people honking--it's election day."
Dunno, does anyone think this is a good idea? The Domain is available

Ocean Power Technologies
is one of the leading Ocean Wave Power alternative energy companies. The technology is simple to understand
, easy to deploy and costs about the same as fossil fuel power 3 to 4 cents. OPT just signed a deal
for a 1M farm off the coast of Spain with a 100M farm by 2006, a major step forward for wave power generation.

New Bose radio hooks up to PC.
I just saw their ad in wired and when to check the site. It had some popups so I turned webwasher off and reloaded the page. When I did, I was just redirected to a teaser. So I turned webwasher back on and was able to get to this site, which shows off a new radio that connects to the PC. The funny thing is to try going to http://wavepc.bose.com/
with and without webwasher
yields different results.
