Happy New Year, my people! Sure, it’s about 4 days late – but I’ve been on a vacation from the interwebs. As for our first installment on Ninjas on the ‘Net for the New Year, I’m bringing you the first [of 2] part of a selection of some of my favorite posts from 2008 – along with a random assortment of links that I’ve collected over the past two weeks [mostly while at work, bored from the holiday ‘lull’].

Hope you enjoy – and a happy start to your ’09.

Jan – The ‘Air Tree’

Feb – Pittsburgh RiverPark

Mar – The Eiffel Tower’s Giant Lily Pad [because it turned out to be a fake]

April – Andrew Maynard’s Suburb-Eating Robots

May – The Solar-Shade

June – GreenPix Zero Energy Media Wall

Tune-in next week for the second half of ’08.

Moving along, those links from the past two weeks:

– the NY Times published an article about architects running wild and not solving any real-world problems, and Architecture for Humanity responded

– the NY Times also had German ‘passive homes’ and the ‘green-osity’ of roundabouts

– Time Magazine tracks the evolution of dorms

– the BBC covers new German hotels

– designboom features the creators of some pretty cool fonts

– dezeen has some interesting concept cars

-the Times Online explains that Prince Charles doesn’t think green buildings need to ‘look modern’

– Wired has a proposal to save the Netherlands

– Archinect features selected predictions for 2009

– the evolution of church design? [ha! see what I did there?

– last but most definitely not least – don’t forget about the rest of the MNP [My Ninja Please!] crew: the parent site, MyNinjaPlease; MusicMNP; GreenMNP; PolitricksMNP; and RobotNinja.
