First, It was our product “Made in China”, now, our work commute to be like in China. Bike to Work Day, organized by WABA (Washington Area Bicyclist Association) and  Commuter Connections plan to encourage the Washingtonians to bike to work

Although I started this post with a negative tone, but I think this is an excellent initiative by WABA and Commuter Connections. Certainly, makes us more fit and healthy. The concept is simple.

I read about it in the Wall Street Journal this morning. Adding a big new twist to the tablet computing wars.
