Here is a great video of Bill Gates talking at TED 2010 where he looks critically at getting to a Co2 output of zero.
So recently things have blown up with the Yahoo video, but PBS also posted a video. Talking about the motivations, construction and counter-consumer culture trend this video hits the nail on the head. I first found this through Michael over at Tiny House Design and Tammy over at Rowdy Kittens both really good blogs.
I wonder if the Tiny House Movement is gaining traction? Are people rethinking normal, is bigger better?
This video of Matt Ridley is pretty interesting, a while back I read his book called Genome, which was great! In this video he is showing how human kind has prospered because the exchange of ideas, how we benefit from it. I couldn’t help but apply this thinking to housing. The Tiny House Movement is a largely internet-based social/thought movement. As a cause we have thrived by sharing our ideas about housing, its problems and how Tiny Houses address it.
What do you think?
