If you're on the web, here's a quick note to say Happy Thanksgiving!  Hope you're safely enjoying the day with family, friends, and others.  I'm grateful to you for coming back and motivated everyday to find better projects, products, and noteworthy topics.

Join Us in Giving to Shelter Box

Shelterbox-warehouse

When disaster hit Haiti, readers said we should team up with some of the folks behind the many container projects we've featured to get shelter to the disaster areas.  It seems like a good idea, and PFNC Global Communities makes an interesting sub-$10,000 container home.  But it may not be a good idea. 

In disasters, housing relief should include some combination of temporary and permanent solutions, and I'm not sure whether a container home would work as either one in Haiti.  We believe something like this Shelter Box could provide some temporary relief.

iHouse Clayton Homes

It's always hard to imagine what will become popular and what won't.  This year, the juggernaut by far was the Clayton Homes i-House.  In prior years, Digg and StumbleUpon determined the most popular articles.  In 2009, these sites didn't have much of an impact on what we're doing.  (Maybe we need more controversy, argumentation, or lists or something?)  Readers seem to be flocking to Facebook and Twitter ... in any event, take a look on the most popular of last year.
