Jamais Cascio:  Tools for a Better World

Jamais is trying to change the world and his company is obviously environmentally friendly.

He seems to be very into electric cars, boats, and other things like this. I am not a person who is totally into the world being electric, and enviromental. In the video he is attempting to convince people to change there lifestyle in such a way of the enviroment. He has some great ideas, and he is right about cell phones changing the world. He really intrigued my attention by showing so many slides, the pictures were really interesting and the cars look crazy. People who love enviromental friendly photos would like this video, he has so many cars on here that I was surprised to see. I have never seen any cars like this and they are very strange but also extremly cool.

He built and expanded the website.  This is another place you can find more out about this project. I cannot say I like these ideas but I do like his ways of showing them. I really don’t understand why everyone is getting so into this environmental stuff, yeah for our future generations it will help but I would rather have gas cars then the smart cars. Smart cars are dangerous and if you crash your most likely not going to be okay. Another thing that Mr. Cascio talks about is cell phones.  He showed how some people had been building there own cell phones to not use so much energy.

It may be a good idea, but it is not something I would want to do.

When Mr. Cascio filmed this video it was in 2006, now here in 2010 there is many earth friendly or environmental friendly things, some like he talked about in the video. Actually even the iphone has many things he spoke about on his video, smart cars are out on the roads, and most papers and such are getting recycled. His website may have been a major part of this new environment. I’m sure he is very happy with the way to world has become and is a big part of keeping the environment like this. I don’t see the huge part in recycling, using less gas, and using less energy.

I do know though that keeping the earth clean is a very great thing and I am going to work on becoming more environmentally friendly!
