Ingenuity on the Train Tracks, Thinking Intelligently about the Future, and Seeing America through the News Abroad

Looking back one, two and five years ago today on Worldchanging:

2009
Bangkok Traintrack Market Video
A popular and great little video that serves as a pretty amazing example of ingenuity in emerging megacities, where poverty and extreme density combine to generate all sorts of new possibilities...

2008
The Apocalypse Makes Us Dumb
Alex Steffen discusses how the idea of millenarianism has influenced our collective conception of the future and argues that "believing in a millennial future, or even frequently telling stories of such futures, blinds us both to what history teaches us about collapses and to what we know about our present moment. It makes us bad at thinking intelligently about the future"...

2005
Watching America
Jamais Cascio shares an interesting news resource for getting a picture of how American actions are viewed abroad...
