    Post Do you have enough "stuff"?

    We were shown this video last night in my algorithm design class (long story). It is 20 minutes long and uses Flash so you'll need the plugin installed.

    While I don't wholeheartedly agree with everything, it should still give you pause and make you at least consider what is going on around you.

    Be warned that there is some "anti-commercialism"/"anti-government"/"agendizing" in it, but the overall message is pretty good.

    Bill Stickers is innocent! It isn't Bill's fault that he was hanging out in the wrong place.

    It's a great thumbnail explanation of how we're wrecking the planet and the distribution of power into the hands of a few - loses accuracy through generality but that's ok, the underlying message is sound. Thanks for posting, RPM!

    No, thank you. That was a much better explanation of its shortcomings. I believe I shall steal your quote.
