Bicycle Race (Queen)

Queen's classic. And they have so many.

Check out what the guys at are doing. Here's their mission: Quantum Shift TV is a 21st Century storyteller renewing the cultural values of community, care and interconnectedness through the use of leading edge technology and citizen journalism. Here's the kind of stories you'll see there - ones of:
  • Human cooperation and survival

  • Solutions to combat global warming
  • The positive impact of aid workers around the world

  • Perspectives and contributions of philanthropists
  • Corporate social responsibility progress

  • Environmental improvements and breakthroughs

  • And all other stories about those making a positive difference on this planet.
A great companion to what we are trying to do at GlobalGiving...and in the spirit of full disclosure, I just found them today when my Google Alerts let me know that they had posted this cool video about GlobalGiving gift cards as an alternative to "stuff:"

The second part of the video is about Google + Specialized's "Innovate or Die" contest. Also very cool. They are giving away money and bikes to pedal-generated ideas for good.

Here's a cool GG project that links the two pieces of this story together:
Pedal-Generated Light in Nepal

If only Freddie were around for this twist on the bicycle...
