I’ve just been having a chat with my brother about how much better life would be if we could build on the past instead of constantly reinventing the wheel.
My take on this is that a big part of the problem is that we’re governed by a bunch of economists whose clueless mantra is "if it ain’t broke, fix it anyway because that makes more money and keeps people employed."
I referred my bro to Annie Leonard’s ‘The Story of Stuff’ (which I referred to in an earlier blog entry). But, having done so, I thought I’d better check that the link hadn’t gone rotten. Ah, no worries, the page loads fine…
… except that the story of stuff video doesn’t load. Something’s broke.
Can I find a contact link to report the problem? Hear that hollow echo.
