Cows, Ambition, and Unembeddable Videos

While we're thinking about resolutions...

A long time friend of The Carrot Project told me last time I saw him that we ought to set ourselves an unlikely goal for 2009. Something simultaneously ambitious and silly.

He suggested we shoot for getting on Oprah. And I've already made a prediction involving Gabe and Max. But I think I have something even better.

We need to make friends with Bill Nye the Science Guy.

Seen Stuff Happens? It's good. Good and funny and accessible and important.

I'd post a video clip right here, but the only place I've been able to find substantial Stuff Happens content is on Planet Green's website, and I can't figure out how to embed from there. Bummer for sure.* But, if you're up for linking away, click here, and learn about cows, methane, and garlic.

*Note to Planet Green and the Discovery Channel: Please don't insist that people watch your videos on your site and your site only. I want to promote your awesome educational content. I want to tell people you're doing great work. I want to help find you fans. Please make it easy for me to do that.

(And sorry about that last post. It was meant for the Posterous blog. I must have emailed it to the wrong Posterous address. I took it down from here, but it lives on on Radical Transparency.)
