It goes without saying that today is a day that needs to be remembered. Perhaps the best way to do so is to offer some form of kindness to a stranger this weekend. In the mean time, here's a look at the last few days at GOOD.The abbreviated week commenced with a profile of New York City's alluring, oddball mayoral candidate, Reverend Billy, and a look Joe Berlinger's new film, Crude, which delves into the complexities of the Amazonian Chernobyl. It continued with a graphic exploration of world literacy, a moment of make-believe brain sharing, and the announcement of a new GOOD contest (the deadline is September 30).We went on to investigate the potential of algae as fuel, one of the nation's disappearing societies, and the question of how to increase comfort while navigating uncertainty. We also mined The Simpsons for political insight, talked to Doug Pray about Art and Copy, and began counting down the days to COP15.If you haven't already, check out a cool take on the common value of sharing, some civic lessons from the GOV 2.0 Summit, the English language's most istan-y new suffix, and a new version of an old dessert.Photo via The Big Picture.
