Another position at William McDonough + Partners has come available. We're hiring another runner. It's part-time, ten dollars an hour. E-mail HR for more information. The position certainly isn't glamorous, but it's an enormously exciting place to work. Highly recommended to anyone interested in starting out and trying to get experience in green business and design.

I am a man of many interests, but I would say that my two favorites are green cities and socializing. So you can understand my delight at learning about Green Drinks. This is an international networking event for those of us working on making things better, making the world more "green". What is meant by that is an ongoing debate, and I worry that the term will become like "fresh" and lose all meaning.
But back to this. This is great. I'm looking into how much of a time commitment organizing this would be. I imagine that work and grad school will be a drain on my time and energy, but I love this idea. This sounds like big fun.

On my way back from DC today, I stopped at the first Citgo on 29 south to refill, as I generally do. I was delighted to see, printed on the pump, 10% ethanol. They're using the E10 blend, which any recent car can use without modification. Now I 10% know how ethanol car drivers feel when they fill up: great. This doesn't appear to be company policy, so it may take a while for this innovation to reach Cville (it just took me an hour and 45 minutes).

Worldchanging is looking for some volunteers to help them deal with their enormous growth. I highly recommend this opportunity to anyone looking to get into the sustainable development world.
