The fourth chronofall ended in late April, but Sam still bears witness to the power of listening to voicemails leaked from our futures

She told me he did run the story…

Now that the chronofall is over, I’ll be taking a little break from social media for a while. Listening to all of these voicemails from the future has made me reevaluate some things. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I’ve got a pretty good present and I’m going to enjoy it while I can.

We’re near the end

Today’s the last day of the chronofall. We’re wrapping up and decoding the last chronofacts. I’ve changed a lot over the past few months. I guess one would expect that when you’re listening to voicemails from the future, but I’ve changed in ways I didn’t expect. You can read more about it over at the FutureCoast Chronofall Diary. Some of the other Coasters will be posting their thoughts there soon too.

Half of Americans are living with dangerous levels of air pollutionA new report from the American Lung Association finds that nearly 148 million Americans breathe unhealthy air.

Half are breathing unhealthy air? I guess that makes sense if urban areas which have more people nearby are the most polluted. Still, that’s not good.

My Fave FutureCoast Voicemails

I’ve been going through the voicemails again at FutureCoast.org and put together a big list of some of my favorites.

(I know, I have a problem. I can’t stop listening!)

Why Drink From a Water Bottle When You Can Eat This Blob Instead?

The new water blob, Ooho, could be a viable alternative to the plastic water bottle.

Trapped inside two layers of membrane made of brown algae and calcium chloride, water is released from the glob of liquid when its casing is punctured. The membrane can then either be eaten or thrown away, similar to the skin of an apple.

Though it’s not as sturdy as a water bottle, García González said a collection of smaller Oohos could be kept in a bigger one with a thicker membrane to prevent unwanted spills (and so that not all of the water has to be consumed in one fell swoop) and its double-membrane design would keep the product hygienic (you could peel back the first one and sip from the second). It may not be the neatest way to hydrate, as seen in this Fast Company video, but according to García González smaller Oohos will be easier to sip without getting wet.

Would you drink from a water blob?
