Something to go with your bloody mary (extra spicy, extra olives, preferably made with bacon vodka if you are like me)…it is a cute, somewhat simplistic (i.e. not necessarily groundbreaking for this audience, but tell your friends) video about how the credit crisis came about (since you Facebook people seem to really like talking about it!):
The Crisis of Credit Visualized from Jonathan Jarvis on Vimeo.
(You can watch the video on YouTube if you prefer, but it comes in two parts.) Credit to the wonderful folks at crisisofcredit.com. I will follow up in the next few days with some commentary on the subject, including an *ahem* interesting firsthand experience I had.
You should also check out the crisis of credit t-shirts – I just love how the “Sub-Prime” family includes a fat dude and a whole flock of screaming children…classy people, classy. 🙂
