but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

size doesn't matter

For those of us who are a bit daunted by Big Think, a group of people who used to work at Google and YouTube have just launched a new site called Howcast.

There are hundreds of short how-to videos over there on a huge variety of topics from How To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint to How To Chill a Six Pack in Three Minutes - which is perhaps one more way to reduce your cfprint? And then you might need this. Or this.

There are step-by-step instructions integrated into some of the videos so you can go back and forth and print them out for future reference.

You can join the Howcast Network as a Filmmaker or as an Expert.

Of course, under the heading no free lunch (actual heading: Howcast+Partners) from the Howcast Blog:
"Howcast works with leading marketers like JetBlue Airways to reach their target audiences with relevant, unobtrusive advertising, as well as with great content partners like MySpace and YouTube to bring our original Howcast content to the world. In the next few weeks, we’ll share more about our work with these and other business partners."

P.S. Click on the picture to see more of these tiny, perfect(?) worlds.
