I’m lucky enough to travel toBrazil for TEDGlobal, and will be taking a bit of extra time to visit Floripa where I hear is full of beaches and life, Rio where TED will be held, and then a quick visit to San Paulo which I hear is the NYC of Brazil and I can finally look into a post I had about A City Without Ads.
My exact plans are a bit unplanned even though heading over in a week, but after the jump I’ll provide a useful list of links my friend from Brazil provided…
If your in the know for something to do in Brazil, let me know.
This inspirational talk has a special place for me since I live in Boston and also captured the alarming global news during the marathon…. watch this talk to get awed in tech and surprised by a guest appearance.
This was one of the more alarming thought provoking talks this year…. imagine if this were true…parasites partiallycontrol the human brain!
Awesome talk by astronaut Chris Hadfield about doing something that scares you…
Pretty simple template to make your own Hipster Logo.
Reminds me of the “hipster branding” tumblr feed.
Some beautiful work by Danielle Evans, playing with food, and typography!!! Amazing results!
I might have to give this the best and efficient means of marketing budget for an amazing outcome. Many copy cats to follow.
I do recall way back in college, I had to cover up the FREE FEDEX box logo when I shipped via UPS.
Neat. Pivoting door. I somewhat want one, but also am not sure if I want one.
Designer Klemens Torggler has several more design on his site … check them out.
Photographer Alex John Beck takes photos of your face, then mirrors them to see how different they are… It’s pretty radical to see how different your 2 halves are, and how the two make you unique. Stunning project.
A few images mirrored after the jump.
This is one bizarre, fascinating science phenomenon. Get yourself a long set of beads, put it in some container, drop it off, and watch the top form some floating magical science oddity…. no magic, just science. Anyhow, I bought myself a set and it works just like the video…. some might think its the beads themselves, but plain rope apparently works as well. If you do try this, a bit of a secret is the higher up you are, the higher up the arch goes.
I was charmed yesterday over dinner outside when a piano painted over from local artist had a sign that said “Play me, I’m Yours”, and within minutes a variety of pianist, singers, and groups formed around making music to everyones ears. The Street Piano Project is pretty simple. Touring pianos placed in public spaces inviting anyone to play as long, or short, and whatever they would like. Several videos are recorded and put on their site. Pretty amazing. Boston has the 1,000th placed piano though pianos have been placed globally over the past few years. Check it out, and see if a piano is visiting your city soon.
