So much about this one resonates. Attempting to fix things when they break. Markets filled with white label, disposable crap. The simple thrill of rolling the dial. Yes, please.

We are on the front lines of the future, my friends. We come together online. We invest in meeting those who matter to us in person—wherever they may be in the world. The brightest minds in silicon valley and beyond are looking at the same things we are.

From the Hey Kris, You Had The Idea First Department comes this story out about how Estonia is piloting a program where speeders are given a choice; pay the usual fine—or sit on the side of the road for 45 minutes and think about what they’ve done.
The idea being tested is that speeders are trying to save time. Getting the pinch and having to choose between paying a fine or just sitting there for an hour might just make some people reconsider speeding.
Of course, this sort of thing isn’t likely to catch on in the States anytime soon. You know, because American speeding fines are more about revenue generation than public safety, but like Finland’s progressive fine scheme, it’s an attempt at slowing people down.
If you’d like an online pit stop—where everybody’s cool, free of political and religious drama, where you can feel like your time online is time well-spent, you might want to join a forum. #orsmallbizsaturday
