packing as japanesespacking as japaneses, originally uploaded by xmarksmyhands.

il ministero dell’ambiente giapponese ha fornito una guida per impacchetatre le cose usando un Furoshiki (credo sia un fazzolettone tradizionale giapponese).Sperando che presto in Italia venga vietata la vendita di buste di plastica nei supermercati!

Se non sbaglio in Francia già è così (o almeno così mi pare di ricordare dall’ultima gita al carrefour della belle epine); perché mai dobbiamo usare un derivato del petrolio quando abbiamo alternative molto più ecologiche e comode come le borse di tela e i sacchetti biodegradabili (quelli che vengono usati per la raccolta dei rifiuti umidi)?

Il cambiamento parte sempre da basi individuali.

io amo la BBC

bbc logo I 15 principi della BBC per il web di Tom Loosemoore

  1. Build web products that meet audience needs: anticipate needs not yet fully articulated by audiences, then meet them with products that set new standards. (nicked from Google)
  2. The very best websites do one thing really, really well: do less, but execute perfectly. (again, nicked from Google, with a tip of the hat to Jason Fried)
  3. Do not attempt to do everything yourselves: link to other high-quality sites instead. Your users will thank you. Use other people’s content and tools to enhance your site, and vice versa.
  4. Fall forward, fast: make many small bets, iterate wildly, back successes, kill failures, fast.
  5. Treat the entire web as a creative canvas: don’t restrict your creativity to your own site.
  6. The web is a conversation. Join in: Adopt a relaxed, conversational tone. Admit your mistakes.
  7. Any website is only as good as its worst page: Ensure best practice editorial processes are adopted and adhered to.
  8. Make sure all your content can be linked to, forever.
  9. Remember your granny won’t ever use “Second Life”: She may come online soon, with very different needs from early-adopters.
  10. Maximise routes to content: Develop as many aggregations of content about people, places, topics, channels, networks & time as possible. Optimise your site to rank high in Google.
  11. Consistent design and navigation needn’t mean one-size-fits-all: Users should always know they’re on one of your websites, even if they all look very different. Most importantly of all, they know they won’t ever get lost.
  12. Accessibility is not an optional extra: Sites designed that way from the ground up work better for all users
  13. Let people paste your content on the walls of their virtual homes: Encourage users to take nuggets of content away with them, with links back to your site
  14. Link to discussions on the web, don’t host them: Only host web-based discussions where there is a clear rationale
  15. Personalisation should be unobtrusive, elegant and transparent: After all, it’s your users’ data. Best respect it.
