Junk Mail Calendars From Conservation Groups? Conservation FAIL

Not something I'd normally write about in here, but this is ridiculous! In the last week I received two unsolicited calendars from conservation groups!

Your Free Nature Conservancy Calendar 2010
Your Free National Parks Conservation Association 2010 Calendar

Does sending bulk junk mail calendars send the wrong message?
I think so. I'm going to keep a list of the free calendars I receive (and throw away) here, just to remind me NEVER to support these clueless conservation groups.

Let's add Carl Pope and the Sierra Club for this Free U.S. Wall Map.
And a bulky full-color guilt trip of a reminder letter from The Nature Conservancy that I still haven't donated to them for the calendar I didn't want or ask for.


Juan Enriquez – The stars and stripes forever?

From PopTech.org

The stars and stripes forever? Futurist and author Juan Enriquez isn't sure of that.
He cites a long history of borders, countries and flags that have changed, and warns
the United States isn't immune.

This is a great talk and there are many more on the PopTech site. Juan mentions this MapsOfWar
movie–fascinating. More on the MapsOfWar.com site.
