Her site contains stories, ideas, and videos that revolve around the Zen ideal, and some of the clips are illustrative of Zen through their spontaneity, such as the time a Silicon Valley exec decided to flip Drue (Judo style) and she gracefully went along for the ride. You have to see it. Anyway, I recently interviewed Drue for a CBS Radio segment, so keep an ear out for that, too.
Wanted to mention a cool story from the BBC today, which shows how researchers in France are using a high-powered X-ray to peer through dense amber (fossil resin) and analyze bugs and insects that have been trapped there for millions of years. It's part spycam, part high tech, and very gee whiz. They can even build 3-D images. Check it out here.
And a quick shout out to my dad, who was introduced to Tech Talk/CBSNews.com readers last year when I traveled to the Arctic. Birthday greetings, bottle of wine? Yep, he's 64 today. Lookin' good, Pop. And speaking of the Arctic, I'm working on a possible story for tomorrow's Early Show about the debate surrounding listing polar bears as threatened on the Endangered Species list.
Until next time, stay connected!
P.S. Also working on a story for next week about CRAGs (Carbon Reduction Action Groups -- neighborhood gatherings very popular overseas aimed at saving the environment and money on their energy bill), and that will also mark the debut of a behind-the-scenes video shot on the Flip camera.
