The Doctor Seuss of Homebuilding is a video about a guy in Texas who’s set up something like Habitat for Humanity with recycled houses. The future homeowners pay for it, but the materials are scrounged, the houses are small, and they do most of the work themselves.

On a sillier note, an ad firm has come up with the Ecofont, which is a font with holes in it. Supposedly, the font uses 20% less ink because of the holes. It’d probably be easier and better to just print in grey than use this font, but it’s a funny idea (along the lines of using a smaller font to keep file sizes small).
