Looking for Bold Ideas to Fix the City, New York Turns to Crowd Sourcing. A new initiative, Give A Minute, aims at nothing less than reinventing civic engagement for the 21st century.

As part of a larger sustainability-focused initiative, PlaNYC2030, “Give a Minute” New York, will ask citizens to contribute ideas on how to make their neighborhoods greener. Those ideas, which can be submitted via the Give a Minute Web site, Facebook, Twitter, or text (specific address TBA) will be funneled to organizers in city government who will connect people with similar ideas to action groups organized around potential solutions.

 iPhone cases, available at Uncommon.  They have more styles to choose from, all art designed by pediatric cancer patients.  That’s a nice gift, if you’re into gifts.

These designs are based on artwork created by pediatric cancer patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Proceeds from product sales fund patient programs for MD Anderson patients. Summer camps, in-hospital classrooms, a rehabilitation ski trip, college and graduate scholarships and many pediatric activities are funded by the Children’s Art Project. Your purchase is a gift that gives twice–and helps make life better for children with cancer.

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
