Weekend links: Brijit, Guardian ponders its eco-impact, one clever ad

Posted by ron at 09:51 AM ET

Cory Doctorow from Boing Boing reports on a bank in Delhi run by street kids. The kids get to save a bit of money (which otherwise would be squandered or worse stolen) and learn valuable skills.

Let's face it long-form magazine articles are pesky. I mean c'mon we all know everyone buys magazines for charticles and pretty photo spreads (and all those perfume ads). Brijit is a site that takes long-form mag articles and boils it down to 100-word summaries. I get a feeling I'll be reading this a lot in the coming months.

The Guardian, arguably the best left-leaning newspaper in the English-speaking world, ponders its own environmental impact.

Finally, the Wooster Collective point out this cheeky little ad on a drawbridge in Amsterdam.

Reader comments:

Brijit looks like an interesting concept.Since I have been blogging I have always tried to keep my posts as short and to the point as possible,seems to work most of the time.And if anything it does help in tightening up and improve ones writing and vocabulary.
But I am sure there are some drawbacks,but then again, that what print mags etc are for.
Anyway, wanted you to know I definitely appreciate your "Friday Links" feature,there is always something interesting.
