Modern-Day Newsreel of Forward-Thinking Ideas

  • Published in Film + Web

drawing-from-new-sources.jpgThis week is the annual “Year in Ideas” issue from The New York Times Magazine (12/9/2007). As a companion to the 70 “curious, inspired, perplexing and sometimes outright illegal innovations,” the magazine’s web site also produced an animation, “Drawing From New Sources.” The 2-minute piece, briskly narrated and clearly summarized, plays out like a modern-day newsreel.

One especially forward-thinking message in the piece, all of which focuses on saving and generating energy, is how package deliverer U.P.S. conserves 3 million gallons of gas by “removing left-hand turns from its operations.”
