I found myself in Palm Springs, CA last week, and it is a marvel of greenery in the middle of the harsh desert. While people criticize it for being wasteful with over 100 golf courses in the vicinity, you have to admire how the Desert Water Agency there has kept the water flow going for decades.
The New Florence blog is a similar innovation oasis in the midst of so much wasteful technology spend. Through April, I have posted 262 innovation entries this year. At that
pace, I could beat last year's run of 750. Not likely given my book and
other commitments this year, but the DWA is pretty inspiring in its long haul track record.
