Grist for the Mill

That Grimmelmann fellow is keeping busy: he's writing an online diary every day this week for Grist Magazine, an environmental webzine. Regular updates to the Lab will be somewhat sporadic this week due to the diversion of writing attention, but you can spend the time discovering Grist and its infectious breed of optimistic realism. Or is it pessimistic idealism? No matter, really, the site's a nice dose of perspective and a good read.
