My favorites for week 26, 2009

This is an excerpt of my weekly “fun@work “ posting I usually throw into my company internal blog at the end of every week.

Surprise Something to surprise: my favorite "I really didn’t know this" of the weekabout dolphins

dolphin's dance
"dolphin’s dance" by kalandrakas.

Did you know that

  • dolphins can sleep with one half of their brain while the other half is awake ?
  • and that this is a pre-requisite for them to survive since other than human beings for instance they need their brain to breathe,
  • and that birds can do the same thing, thus sleep while they are on a long distance flight ?

Thumbs-up Something to enjoy: my favorite photo  on flickr under a Common Creative licenseabout the beating hearts of the Buddhas

The Beating Hearts of the Buddhas
"The Beating Hearts of the Buddhas" by Stuck in Customs.

  Something to talk about: my favorite quote of the weekabout telling and writing

I take the view, and always have, that if you cannot say what you are going to say in twenty minutes you ought to go away and write a book about it.

In that sense blogging might be a good communication tool. Instead of writing a book about something, why not contributing your wisdom in little pieces through a blog ? Unless you want to make some money of course …
