ABC's American Inventor - Season 2 Finale Live Blog and Recap!!!


American Inventor Show Recap

Can you believe we are already at the end of the second season of ABC's American Inventor? It feels like only yesterday we were marveling at the ingenuity of The Cougar! Well, maybe not. Anyhow, it has certainly been an interesting season and, after all the attempts (feeble and no so feeble), we have arrived at our 3 finalists, one of whom will walk away tonight with $1,000,000 and the title of the next American Inventor. Just to remind you, here are the contenders:

-Elaine Cato and the 6-in-1 Backless Bra

- Ricky DeRennaux and HT Racers

-Gregg Chavez and The Guardian Angel

So who do you think America voted for? Well, the show is about to begin, so tune in and I guess we'll all find out the winner of American Inventor. read more »

World Travel through World Photography


World Heritage Tour is a pretty amazing concept: Photograph the world. Post it online. Let everyone see it and add to it, because the reality is it's disappearing at an alarming rate. But, with WHT working hard to document all those places most of us can't see, we get a pretty stunning compilation of what the world has to offer—and in 360 degree photography no less. read more »

"Wind Turbines To The Rescue!" Says Seth


 

After watching the Live Earth concert this past weekend I've been inspired to jump on the going green bandwagon.  This morning I was even more aware of how much water I used as I got ready for work.  Continuing my eco-friendly habits, I decided to feature in today's blog the new V90-3MW wind turbines by Vestas that promise to make a huge difference in the energy crisis if the world populationg actually realizes its value.  Not only that, but the website is really cool, too! read more »

"Game Time: Can You Get the Glass?" Asks Seth


This is probably a game I shouldn't have found, but, alas, web-surfing led me to it. Those advertising geniuses over at,uh, the Milk company have come up with a spiffy online game that is loads of fun and oddly addicting. It may seem simple, but don't be deceived, it requires a little skill to get the glass. read more »

"Cool Blogs Go Down Like a Good Cup of Coffee:" Says Seth


Being that I maintain one of the, ahem, coolest blogs on the net, I'm always looking for other cool blogs out there that give me a run for my money. Occassionally I will find a blog out there--like Dark Roasted Blend--that provides entertaining quippy web niblets that keep me scrolling through pages and pages of past posts (seriously, what is up with me and alliteration lately?).

Breathing Earth = Reality Check : Says Seth


Ya know how you always hear people talking about someone being born or dying every some-odd seconds? Well Breathingearth.net actually visualizes that "statistic" right on their web-page. I'm still a bit baffled as to how they accomplish such a worldly feat, but it's still cool (and a little eerie) that something happening on such a massive scale can be captured through the magic of theInternet. read more »

"Organ Regeneration's a Snap!" Said Seth


As I made one of my many daily visits to the NY Times homepage, I found this article by Nicholas Wade about organ regeneration. To say this discovery of being able to regrow cells is big would be an understatement, so I'm doing my best to make sure the public is aware of such a medical advancement that could, and likely will change the face of medical science. read more »
