01) Honda e: the EV that electric car haters love – Jonny Smith CarPervert


“The Honda e is probably the most fascinating EV without a Tesla badge. In fact it’s probably more fascinating, because its design alone captured the attention and desire of legions of car enthusiasts who don’t even bloody like electric cars.
This 137 mile range Pokemon faced thing has a 35.5kWh battery pack which can be rapid charged in half an hour at 100kw. 0-62 takes 8.3 seconds with this 150hp launch edition car, but you will be able to option it with 134hp thereafter.

On paper it almost loses in every respect to its plug-in peers, but there’s a charm to the £27,000 e, and for some that’s enough. Using the power of finance you’ll be able to live with one from under £300 a month.

01) Jaron Lanier Fixes the Internet


“Computer scientist and futurist Jaron Lanier has a plan to fix the internet. This Silicon Valley maverick has a radical vision for how we can all earn money from our data.

Every time you click on a website — yes, even that ad right there — a company is keeping a little bit of your information, and someone somewhere is making money off of it.

Lanier argues that every bit of data out there belongs to the person who created it, and if anyone should be getting paid for it, it’s you. He has a plan to make this happen.

01) 10 Awesome Houseboats and Future Floating Homes


“Today, we look a variety of houseboats, some available now, and some in the near future.

Highlights from this video include solar-powered houseboats, functional boat homes that use the water around them to keep heated and cooled, modular floating buildings, prefab houseboats with a minimal energy footprint, and floating hotel rooms.”

I think most of these qualify as tiny homes…if very expensive tiny homes.

I’d love to own one.
