The Story of Stuff

The Story of Stuff will raise your awareness of environmental issues in our consumer society.
" What is the Story of Stuff?
From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever."

Pandora - A New Kind of Radio

Pandora - it's a new kind of radio that plays just the music you want to hear on your computer.

from their website ~
"On January 6, 2000 a group of musicians and music-loving technologists came together with the idea of creating the most comprehensive analysis of music ever."

Q: What is Pandora?

Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you enjoy music you already know, and to help you discover new music you'll love.

It's powered by the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken, the Music Genome Project: a crazy project started back in early 2000 to capture the complex musical DNA of songs using a large team of highly-trained musicians.

Just tell us one of your favorite songs or artists and we'll launch a streaming station to explore that part of the musical universe.

There are many chain letter and hoax emails circulating into in-boxes all the time. Check here for information about chain letters and hoax emails: Hoaxbusters "This document contains information about hoaxes, chain letters, urban myths and other bogus information being routed around the Internet."
