AP Bored, Sends Someone to Point Out Obvious

In the category of "Well, Duh," the AP has recently sent some otherwise under-utilized writers to "review" USGS coastal maps. In doing so they point out the bleeding obvious: historical locations will be lost if/when the tides rise.

While it might be easy to laugh at the AP for directing us to something so obvious that it hurts--that historical locales are in no way special--I do appreciate that they seem to be attempting to raise awareness. Sure, the story isn't particularly newsworthy. However, it does have a certain degree of activism attached to it, as if to say, "Seriously--this is what will happen." I question the validity of using the perennially underfunded historic site as a poster child. Then again whatever it takes. One would presume that eventually the AP will have something for everyone to relate to. Hopefully.

In related news, my love for Good magazine grows apace as I remember Meryl Rothstein's bit on Eve S. Mosher. An artist, Mosher put her paint (and a little GPS) to good use and is currently drawing a line around New York City that indicates what some have predict to be the catastrophic flood line. 10 feet above normal, the line--and the maps she has created--seem to be disturbing some people who would otherwise not have any overt stake.

Mosher's High Water Line project is available on-line.

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. (If he will be possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll I thankful, bye friend).
