Bottled water is healthy water -- right?

That's what the marketers would have us believe

Bottled water isn't a good value

No healthier than tap water

Bottled water means garbage

Bottled water means less attention to public systems

The corporatization of water

What can you do?

In reality, bottled water is just water.

In theory, bottled water in the United States falls under the regulatory authority of the Food and Drug Administration. In practice, about 70 percent of bottled water never crosses state lines for sale, making it exempt from FDA oversight.

there's very little empirical evidence which suggests bottled water is any cleaner or better for you than its tap equivalent.

Consider taking Food and Water Watch's No Bottled Water Pledge. Conserve water wherever possible, and stay on top of local water issues.

Digital Editions comes of age and going mobile

I applaud Sony for supporting Adobe's Digital Editions. A wise move. I think I need to pick up one of those Sony Readers...

For those publishers who require DRM capabilities, we have also debuted a new hosted service for content protection, Adobe ADEPT. More later on ADEPT and all the issues around DRM. I also want to highlight the Flex-based development of Digital Editions, which in many ways is Adobe's first AIR (aka Apollo) style application. But that will also have to wait for another post.

The 1.0 release is available for Mac (PPC & Intel native) and Windows (XP, Vista, and Windows 2000). And today at the O'Reilly Tools of Change conference we are also demonstrating a desktop Linux version that will be in public beta soon. Mobile/device support is also coming, as evidenced by our announcement today that Sony wil be incorporating Digital Editions capabiliities, including EPUB and Adobe DRM support, into the Sony Reader product line.

The importance of Metadata

The service itself is about making diner reservations online, but the value is really in the details.

Feed Education with Robert Scoble

On the train now, but can't get enough tech. I like how robert's posts are all twitterish. Short sentences all filled with the moment. It's clear he was doing somethings more than once...and so he mentions things, in slightly different ways throughout the post.

Maybe I'm just tired.
