More News You Can Use

Temperature at departure = 37° F (3° C)

Uneventful ride in today. So, we harness the power of the internet to bring you the following stories:

Ikea gave 500 workers flat-pack bikes. Cool.

CNet has an ARTICLE about a study on teen media habits. "Americans aged 13 to 18 spend more than 72 hours a week using electronic media--defined as the Internet, cell phones, television, music and video games." So, what media that is near and dear to my heart is missing? Radio isn't mentioned at all. No surprise, really; if my kids are downstairs I can pretty much guarantee that at least two will be playing video games, at least one is going to be on their laptop with the others will be watching their siblings while text messaging. The industry really needs to figure out how to make radio relevant to that demographic. Quick.
