Will FarmVille save the world?

Zynga’s massively successful Facebook game proves social media technology could have a major hand to play in the new digital economy.

Seeds of ChangeA few years ago I made a pronouncement on a social media panel that digital goods would redefine the way we do charitable giving online. Needless to say, there were snickers. After all, how could "throwing a beer" at someone or giving someone a "fluffy kitty" for their birthday really amount to anything, especially at a $1 price point? But now, thanks to Zynga,......read more

Carl Pope responds to a NY Times op-ed claiming the world's poor need cheap fossil fuels

Carl Pope for The Huffington Post: Sigh. Bjørn Lomborg has once again been given a fact-checker free podium -- and has left it fact free. His latest salvo in The New York Times claims that the world's three billion poorest -- who, lacking access to modern energy, light with kerosene and cook with wood -- must suffer through nineteenth century coal and twentieth century oil to advance --......read more

Cults, "Go Outside" (Unofficial)

Good times fan vid shot in Maui

NYC's Cults made quite a splash a year ago with three songs posted anonymously on Bandcamp. One of them was "Go Outside," a lovely bit of sunny, off-kilter pop that was a fixture on our summer soundtrack. As the summer approaches, and with a new Cults LP around the corner, it's a good time to resurrect the song with this fun fan-made video from Helene Park, shot in Maui. So yeah, GO OUTSIDE....read more

So even though I'd spent barely three weeks in Washington this year (and......read more

Colbert Show's Environmental Montage

read
Sometimes you just have to laugh.

With all the bad news about the environment constantly flooding the media, it's not always easy to feel positive about things. Recently, if we're not stressing about the oil spill, we're worried about the fate of climate legislation. Environmental progress almost seems like a "one step forward, two steps back" scenario. At SHFT, we try to stay focused on all the good......read more
