Geography and Blogging
http://squattercity.blogspot.com/ - is one of many blogs I check for information. This one has an excellent recent post on measures by the Brazilian government to map favelas correctly - and suggests the reasons why they might want to do this... It is a great blog for AS / A2 Geographers as it links in to some excellent articles on LEDC city growth.

Also, over at Pruned, there is an article on how Greenland could market the water produced by its melting ice caps to those countries short of fresh water. This could transform the economy of the country. It's one of 7 suggestions in a current exhibition. Thought provoking stuff...
