sweet origami flag/bland friedman article

The New York Times asked 10 artists to make "green" flags to illustrate Thomas Friedman's article "The Power of Green", published in this weekend's New York Times Magazine.

The coolest was the origami flag, designed by origami guru Robert J. Lang. See the video here.

By the way, in case you're wondering, Friedman's article is the same rehashing of similar arguments he's been making for years, which are essentially all plagiarized from real thinkers--he just adds his own self-impressed, obnoxious branding to it. There is no doubt in my mind that this article is the precursor to a book filled with stories of chatting about ethanol over a couple of beers with corn farmers in Iowa. He's got some really insightful gems in this piece, like: "Soaring oil prices are poisoning the international system by strengthening antidemocratic regimes around the globe." Huh...no kidding.

In other words, you can probably skip it. But check out the origami.
