    Solar Roadways

    I love this stuff. Smart people solving real problems, smartly.

    Inventors of Solar Roadways, Julie and Scott Brusaw, have raised over $2 millions through IndieGoGo and won funding from the Federal Highway Administration to build two prototypes (already complete) so despite the nay-sayers, this thing could happen, at least some aspect of it (until Big Energy gets their oily hands on the patents). Taking the politics out of the equation, challenges to overcome, it is an idea with merit.

    PROJECT ARBITER by Michael Chance

    CommentsComments Off

    It’s Christmas! Yeah! We made it through the holiday season with most of our sanity intact.

    A lot was accomplished in 2013: new product launches, client sites, mobile apps, even rescued a pup (now the official mascot of answerYES)… but we didn’t quite get to our annual holiday digital creation. So here is one we liked from the gang at Victors & Spoils, a Colorado Ad Agency based on crowdsourcing (see their Facebook App called Fan Machine to get an idea what that means).

    Somewhere Over PA by Mark Aaron James

    This song by Mark Aaron James, called Somewhere Over PA, is about a satellite listening in on the cell phone calls coming from the hijacked Flight 93 on September 11th.

    I used to think I was a god because I lived in heaven
    I rode a tower of fire, replaced miles and miles of wire
    I heard a million voices, witnessed a million choices
    But I was humbled when I was helpless

    You see, I’m just a satellite and I might die tonight
    ’cause I can’t take the calls, no I can’t handle them all
    And I heard,

    Don’t cry, don’t cry, no don’t make this hard I love you
    Four guys built just like me, don’t worry, hey I love you
    One down, two down, three down, is that true, I love you
    There’s something we’ve got to do, don’t worry, hey
    I love you

    Lord’s Prayer takes on new air when it’s said from heaven
    You know who’s will be done, you know who’s kingdom’s comin’
    I’m just a satellite and if I heard it right
    There’s something wrong down on earth,
    I’m taking calls from heaven

    Don’t cry, don’t cry, no don’t make this hard I love you
    Four guys built just like me, don’t worry, hey I love you
    One down, two down, three down, is that true, I love you
    There’s something we’ve got to do, don’t worry, hey
    I love you

    I’m sorry I’m being vague, you see I’m just a machine
    But I know where those calls came from
    You know what those calls mean
    The first battle in the war, the first time the good guys scored
    I was a messenger, I was a messenger, singing…

    Don’t cry, don’t cry, no don’t make this hard I love you
    Four guys built just like me, don’t worry, hey I love you
    One down, two down, three down, is that true, I love you
    There’s something we’ve got to do, don’t worry, hey
    I love you
