Bathtime in Clerkenwell | Rocketboom

   Posted by: dhcsoul   in Odds & Sods

It’s 7 a.m., and the fascist birds in his cuckoo clock are going to make sure this poor sap gets up and into the bath! Little Napoleons and Kaisers get a Metropolis-type but fantastically whimsical assembly line going and pretty soon everybody’s in! The catchy Vaudeville-inspired tune will have you tapping your toes all day. Atomfilms.com

  • Information Arbitrage: We, The People, Deserve Better – We, the People, are the owners of the US Treasury, the Federal Reserve, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and represent the “full faith and credit of the US Government.” Therefore, solutions to the financial crisis that use our money should benefit us, and reflect a risk-adjusted market rate of return for the capital used. The measure should be what a rational, arms-length investor would demand for scarce capital in a time of crisis, not what Treasury Secretary Paulson together with CEO of the bailed out institution deem appropriate

  • IT Conversations | Jon Udell’s Interviews with Innovators | Howard Bloom (Free Podcast) – Many of us feel that the Web is ushering in a new era of global consciousness. But Howard Bloom thinks life has been a collective mind from the very beginning. He made the case in his book “Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind From the Big Bang To the 21st Century.” Host Jon Udell speaks with Bloom who reviews the themes of that book — group selectionism, complex adaptive systems, collective learning — and considers what has, and hasn’t, changed since the book was published in 2000.

…. the enterprise of knowledge is consistent surely with science; it should be with religion, and it is essential for the welfare of the human species.”

– Carl Sagan

In “The Varieties  of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search For God” Sagan covers his thoughts on the relationship between religion and science and describes his personal search to understand the nature of the sacred in the vastness of the cosmos.

    It Doesn’t Have to be This Way

    You’re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local San Francisco restaurant that neither of you has been to. You’d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed. This familiar sequence is an awful lot of clicking, typing, searching, copying, and pasting in order to do a very simple task. And you haven’t even really sent a map or useful reviews—only links to them.
