“ “Yes Men” Are Baaaaccck!

Yes Men_Seattle

Whether you agree with their tactics or not, The Yes Men have been effective at bringing attention to some really important climate and humanitarian issues. I think they first made waves by perpetrating Dow’s fake apology for the Bhopal disaster but they’ve also managed to get the US Chamber of Commerce to….pay attention to Climate Change….which is a pretty big deal. And now, their latest movie, The Yes Men Revolt, will be playing at the Seattle International Film Festival (上海国际电影节) June 12th-18th at SIFF Cinema Uptown.

A Very Inspiring WS Tool Library Story

At the Tool Library BBQ fundraiser last weekend (which was a great success!), I had the pleasure to meet many Tool Library regulars. Many people exclaimed their love of this awesome community resource and described how they use it. I was really blown away when I met Gaston and heard the story of how he and his wife had exclusively used tools from the 西西雅图工具库 to turn their fixer-upper into a lovable, livable home. This is a great example of how to use a Tool Library!

Here is Gaston ..继续阅读
