another sign of hard times

Davos Powerfest attendees weren't met with the usual goody bags and free handheld computers this year. Only pedometers. To promote walking between sessions instead of being ferried around in carbon-belching limos. Eco-friendly Forum organizers offer a reward for those who rack up more than 20,000 steps: a chocolate cup of candy. And for the overall winner: a mystery prize. At least one inventive captain of industry figured out you can rack up paces on the pedometer by swinging it around while eating lunch. Another reason he's at Davos and I'm not, I guess.
