Blog Action Day - Climate Change

This year I joined Blog Action Day 2009. Today bloggers everywhere will write about Climate Change in an effort to raise awareness and promote action. I was excited when I learned about #BAD2009, the fact that it coincides with my current trip to San Diego and everything I am reading at both the San Diego Zoo and Sea World about conservation of animals and resources seem too perfect of an opportunity to pass up.

Climate change is an issue that affects all of us in one way or another. As I mentioned before I am hanging out in San Diego and got the pleasure of  seeing the Polar bears. Did you know many Polar bears are drowning? Climate change and melting ice flow means there is a much greater distance between the sea ice and the Polar bears are unable to swim the increased distance. Rent the Disney movie, "Earth" to see exactly what I'm talking about.
A little closer to home, all of my Flagstaff people have most likely heard me complain about an annoying little bug called the Pine Beetle at some point. This beetle is already the cause of so many problems relating to dead and dry tress in Northern Arizona, creating kindling for the forest fires that we fear every summer. Pine trees used to keep beetles in check using water to assist in creation of sap that can keep beetles at bay and cold winter weather, which beetles do not thrive in. Increased temperatures have meant decreased water and warmer winters, a lose lose for Pine trees.
There are plenty of reasons to be concerned about climate change.
Please check out this site with brief videos outlining climate change in Google Earth, read up on some of the facts and take action today.
Thanks everyone!

Some More Thoughts about Project Fi

First off... I’m still using Project Fi.This post originally started as a response to a comment about people quitting Project Fi too early and not letting the Project grow and improve... but it got long, so now it's a blog post. Boom.
I agree with many that Project Fi is still in its early stages, in “Project” mode, and has not been around long enough to work out all the kinks. The things some people say it offers that other services don’t (cross device calls and texts) can be achieved for free with Google Voice and there is very little difference to the end users. The biggest things Project Fi has going for it are these two things:

1. WiFi Assistant

This could/should be huge… like really super duper huge. Free high speed WiFi all over the place. Stream and browse at will! That said I’ve been on Project Fi for 4 months and have only had 3 or 4 keys. This needs to improve drastically in order to mitigate the large price increase people coming from far more data friendly plans would…
