WorldChanging

World Changing Book

This is probably the most interesting book I’ve purchased in a long time. It’s a massive compendium of ideas and tools for making the world a better place. But don’t listen to me, listen to the rumours on the inkernets about it. Or ask the google about it. You know the drill.

The publishers of this book ‘hacked’ amazon’s best seller list by having people purchase the book on amazon at exactly the same time. The book shot up to #13 on the best seller list in one day.

You can buy the book here.

BTW, I’ve opened comments again. It seems the spambots have slowed to about 200 comment spams a day. Down from several thousand… Ugh.

Ferrari Enzo Crash – The Whole Story

Ferrari Enzo Crash
by Jae Lee

Remember that dude who crashed his ~$1.5 million dollar Ferrari Enzo in LA? Wired has a fascinating story about this incredibly sketchy dude.

The “print” version (all on one page)

The web version (split into 6 pages with pics)

UPDATE: LOOKS LIKE COMEDIAN EDDIE GRIFFIN CRASHED ONE OF THESE TOO! OUCH!

Here is a video of the enzo crash:

Dragon Force MP3

Dragon Force

A friend of mine told me about Dragon Force a couple months ago. I’m not really into “heavy metal” but these guys are really somethin else.

According to their site:

“DragonForce plays their own unique style of Extreme Power Metal!”

Who doesn’t like “extreme” power metal?

Zero 7 Futures Video by Robert Seidel

Zero 7 Futures Video

Music: Zero 7 feat. José González – Futures
Director: Robert Seidel

This low-budget video was done within just 2½ weeks for the planned DVD of Zero 7’s “The Garden”. The video visualizes crushed objects representing a diffuse future of wishes and desires which shape over time. Visible artefacts and the rough synchronisation add subtle emotions to the uncertain process… Side note: Another video for the song was commissioned and got directed by Duckeye, as this one was too uncommercial…
