Be a Part of Mammalian History!

Anyone who has every attempted to walk a dog in Inman Park has surely speculated that Atlanta's small town downtown must have the highest concentration of squirrels in the universe.  A disparate group of neighbors set out to prove this very point, thus embarking on an adventure that would culminate in the Inman Park Squirrel Census.

The team's Kickstarter page has attracted much deserved media attention, perhaps laying the ground work for more research into the habits of the ATL's favorite rodents. 

Skip the Black Friday sales this year and get everyone on your Christmas list an awesome infographic poster of Grey Squirrel statistics from the 30307. Hurry, supplies are limited!

Thank Every Day of the Year with We&Co

Happy Thanksgiving! While you are coming down from the feast, take a few minutes to check out We &Co, the smartphone home of all things thanking. This start up powers an iPhone app and website allowing customers to recognize great service and good vibes from the staff of a business. 

 Here in Atlanta, We&Co is in full swing in many restaurants, coffee shops, bars and independent retailers.  We and Co's app is fueled via the Foursquare API, with a user interface that is fun and endearing (look for the magic moment that seals each of your shout outs).  While I believe We&Co is a brilliant outcropping of the new business ideals spilling out of The Thank You Economy and We First, it is foremost just a great way to give a little appreciation to folks working hard in your community.

So, who did you thank today?

Heading into the holiday weekend with a close eye on the events in Korea via The Economist and New York Times.  When does China get serious about dealing with North Korea?
