TED Global 2014: RIO

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

TEDglobal.south.2014
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.

I might have to give this the best and efficient means of marketing budget for an amazing outcome. Many copy cats to follow.

Alex John Beck: Both Sides Of

Sunday, February 9th, 2014


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.

Self Siphoning Beads

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

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.
