All together in one post, at last. ^_^
First is a very good article about why ethanol will soon be what America runs on. It is well thought out and actually has examples where things have worked and not worked in the past. You want the lowdown? Eventually the free market will make ethanol the primary fuel source here, but it could be sped up by government incentives.
Next a music group called the Artic Monkeys has just sold 120K albums in a single day. How'd they do it? They released the album to the file sharing networks beforehand. No really.
Finally; don't you wish it was summer?
