- Keep A Breast: Gorgeous, Sexy and Empowering Breast Cancer Art from Healthbolt (Image below)
It’s a group of
hippiesartists that are coming together to do something novel and attention grabbing: they make casts of female torsos, have artists decorate them, and then auction off the works for charity.
- Using Web 2.0 to Track Weight Loss and Sleep from The Insomnia Blog
A while back I stumbled across this post, about Web 2.0 applications designed to track weight loss and encourage dieters in their efforts to exercise, lose weight and get fit.
