2 Videos. Many Conclusions. What’s Yours?

Over the past couple of days these two videos struck me big time. The first is a TED Talk about the paradox of choice or put differently: having to much choice/freedom can actually be a bad thing; we all need a fish bowl to reach maximum welfare according to Barry Schwartz.

The second, I.O.U.S.A., is a 30 minute byte sized teaser for the 85 minute documentary. The film talks at length about the United States’ four major deficits: budget, savings, trade and leadership. It drives home the fact that these four deficits alone are the greatest threat facing the United States present day, and will mostly likely decrease the quality of life for US citizens, starting with my generation.

Once you watch both you can’t help draw correlation between the two in many interesting ways. And I invite you to take the time to watch both of them and then proceed to let the numerous ideas from both marinate for a while in that brain of yours. Enjoy.

Critical Mass San Francisco June, 27th 2008


One word describes this: badass

I was on my way to Pownce’s 1st Birthday and my muni perfectly timed a San Francisco Critical Mass on Market St. At the time I had no idea what it was, or why it was, and everyone on my bus was like HOLY CRAP look at all those bikes. Thankfully I had my pocket cam, turned it on, and started blasting video.

I gotta give a shout out to Tyler Howarth over at Rev3’s InternRow for helping me figure out what I had witnessed; thanks to his blog post.

Muhammad Ali…Recipe for Life

The “Sportsman of the Century”, always well spoken, shares his philosophy on life; and doesn’t disappoint.

Bloomberg for President

Not that he’s actually announced his candidacy. But after watching this interview it makes you wonder how much better of a candidate Bloomberg would be, then the 20 odd candidates we are currently stuck with. One quote, in my mind, really sums up his approach in New York, “Less government in business and more business in government.” This interview is truly worth 63 minutes of your time:

Free!

Chris Anderson, Author of The Long Tail and Editor-in-Chief of Wired, talks about The FREE Economy. Awesome presentation, highly recommended.

First week of 60 Seconds

After my first week of producing 60 Seconds, I can honestly state: a daily video cast is alot of work, especially when it’s a one man show. Thankfully, I am a student and possess the required spare time. There is definitely something about it, that is quite fulfilling; and so I will continue on my crusade. Below is today’s episode.
