Politics has up into now full of false promises, but now with Internet it is possible to track what is false ore true. In other words if politics become true it can change the world.
PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in American politics. Reporters and editors from the Times fact-check statements by members of Congress, the White House, lobbyists and interest groups and rate them on our Truth-O-Meter. Politifact.com
Why not do the same for your local community, brands and sports?
I have been writing for years about an idea I got to built a city named after Google. I called it Google Downtown. I even talked with Google’s Global CEO, Eric Schmidt about it this summer. Google is a cool company with good attitude. I hope this will be an reality in my life time (a city is more than a name).
Last month, Google announced plans to sell 1 gigabit-per-second fiber optic broadband to consumers. The plan called for it to be rolled out to no fewer than 50,000 homes in the initial test, and maybe as many as 500,000, but didn’t specify where it would be rolled-out. Topeka, Kansas wants in. Bad.

So bad that….
Mayor Bill Bunten on Monday issued a proclamation changing the name — unofficially — of Topeka to Google for the month of March to bolster efforts to encourage the corporation to place a pilot high-speed Internet system in the city. Cjonline.com
The old saying: It’s NOT rocket science. Means that not everything is complicated (ore need to be so). I realize that some things in life needs to be so, other words: It IS rocket science!
I think this is an wonderful way of changing the way in how to look at innovation: Why not take away the engine and use the rocket to power an helicopter?
The Dragonfly DF1 is a helicopter that uses rockets attached to the tips of its blades to power it instead of a conventional fixed motor attached to the body. Gizmag.com

Every day millions of people across the globe use Swedish products, work with Swedish companies or shop at Swedish global chains. Still, people are often not aware that these brands are Swedish. Swedishwire.com
Can education be so fun that it becomes FunEducation? What I mean is that you will have so much fun learning that you wont think it is education. I really like the fun dimensions in Playalongmusic.com.
A question I have discussed with professional musicians for years is: do amateur musicians have more fun? The best answer that I got was: Yes, but the audience listening to professional musicians has more fun. At sites as Playalongmusic.com amateurs don’t need an audience before they sound as good as professionals – if they combine their service with a software program that can listen and compare how one plays with the plays of the originals. Wouldn’t it be great if the website where saying, now you are playing 50% as good as the original and maybe one day 120% as good as the original (they have become a talent platform like TV-shows as Idol, and can connect talent with the music industry).
