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.
Awesome talk by astronaut Chris Hadfield about doing something that scares you…
Some nifty crafty boxes to make for some magical box tumbling…. I wonder if it would be an interesting shelf =)
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.
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.
A must see video reminder to….well, stay in your world even though you have a connected world.
One of my fav talks at the 99U (formerly 99% conference)
