Google – Don’t Be Evil

January 23, 2011

Just want to share. Different peoples may have different opinion about this. I agree with Jamie Court (third video below), that Google should give the users option whether want to be tracked or not. Or course we can delete the cookies or download TOr or anything else. But, google should also show their concern and care about peoples choice. Of course it is almost impossible for anybody to say that they didn’t need Google. Just show that they care about peoples.

Can Insects Replace the Cattle?

January 10, 2011

Insect menu

Greenhouse gas (GHG) production, as a cause of climate change, is considered as one of the biggest problems society is currently facing. The livestock sector is one of the large contributors of anthropogenic GHG emissions. Also, large amounts of ammonia (NH3), leading to soil nitrification and acidification, are produced by livestock. Therefore other sources of animal protein, like edible insects, are currently being considered.

The Man with a 30 Second Memory

The Man with a 30 Second Memory

How it is feel, living with no memories? I think, it feels nothing. That man, don’t even know the taste of food, of anything. No memories, no past, no expectation for future, no fears, no hope, no nothing. How did he live? How did he go to the toilet? Brushing teeth takes more than 30 seconds. It looks tiring for his wife, split for a half minutes, likes for a year. But, she looks very patience with him. And he remember no one, even his children, except his wife. Watch Youtube Video.

The Trustworthiness of Beards

Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis The cricket sound is totally cool

A recent study in the Journal of Marketing Communications found that men with beards were deemed more credible than those who were clean-shaven.

Participants thought the men with beards had greater expertise and were significantly more trustworthy when they were endorsing products like cell phones and toothpaste. But, oddly, men with beards were slightly less effective than smooth-cheeked fellows in underwear advertisements. **Make sense.

Stupidity is contagious

Just know that stupidity is one of the course study in Occidental College. Amazing. What is the future for their graduates? Stupidity observer? Stupidity renderer? Stupidity statistic engineer? Stupid? Curious to know who took this course. Or maybe just a new way to ‘publicise’ that college.

The course itself uses works of Friedrich Nietzsche and Gilles Deleuze among others to clarify that ‘stupidity is neither ignorance nor organicity, but rather, a corollary of knowing and an element of normalcy, the double of intelligence rather than its opposite’. Only those who indulge in it must know. Listverse

In Goolgle image search, theres a lot of ‘motivational images’ for stupidity. Via HuffingtonPost

‘The Ark’: Floating Hotel

December 31, 2010

“Designed to be a bioclimatic building, the Ark incorporates several innovative green strategies and elements to ensure that its residents can survive aboard for months at a time.” The Ark can be built in various climates and in seismically dangerous regions because its basement is a shell structure, devoid of ledges or angles.

It sound likes this Ark structure can protect human beings from nuclear disaster and extreme weather. But, it is not a nuclear bunker, it is an ark-shape hotel. When I first read that it is a hotel, I thought it is gonna be some kind of new style hotel that can sail on the ocean.

The Ark can be built in various climates and in seismically dangerous regions because its basement is a shell structure, devoid of ledges or angles.

Is this the future? Peoples live in a closed high tech ark, equipped with some plants, for breathing , with several innovative green strategies, and heat, air and light inside it controlled by machine.

How to make a Daft Punk helmet in 17 months

December 30, 2010

It is for sure needs a lot of hardworks, failure, patiences and waiting to finish that helmet. it is 17 months! More than a year. It is not ‘How to make a Daft Punk helmet in 17 days’, but months.
But, maybe some peoples gonna say that maybe it is not a 17 months continuous project. Maybe they took a ‘rest’ for several months and leaved that helmet in the garage or somewhere else, unfinished, and then started it back. But, from that video, they took the picture for each step which they had finish. So, it seems that they really put a lot of attention on that helmet. And I think it is worth it for them. They video and their helmet everywhere in the internet. Also in Gizmodo. “THIS PROJECT WAS A ONE-OFF. I AM NOT TAKING ORDERS FOR DUPLICATES.”
