DailyDirt: Tracking Down Your Food

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Poking through your fridge for a snack doesn't quite count as hunting for food. Not too many of us actually kill what we eat or farm fruits and vegetables, but there are a few online tools that'll help people see where they're food is coming from. Here are just a few examples of food-tracking projects that could bring some aspects of farming closer to home. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    stalking your chicken...

    STalking your chicken sounds like a euphamism for something, but I'm not sure what.

      Re: stalking your chicken...

      One must stalk their chicken before choking it. In that sense, it would either be a euphemism for searching for porn or developing an erection.

    There are many people who want to know whether a product contains pink slime, is genetically modified, was injected with hormones, was exposed to pesticides/herbicides, what it was fed and where, etc ... you know, all those things some producers are afraid to admit and threaten others for pointing out.
