My favorites for week 42, 2009

NerdSomething to watch: my favorite video clip of the weekabout changing the world

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could change the world as shown in this cool animation video about an Origami World ?

Of course this won’t work, since you share this world with 6.8 billion other human beings. But what, if you could create your own world … ?

Cool Something to discover: my favorite bookmark of the weekabout the size of our planet
We know: Size doesn’t matter. Our planet Earth is really small compared to our sun. And can you imagine how small our sun is compared to e.g. Antaresa red supergiant star in the Milky Way galaxy ? Check out this site for some insightful visualization of the size of our planets compared to our sun and other suns: The Size Of Our World.

Halloween is coming up, folks, time to buy some sweets to be prepared for the kids invasions before it is too late ! This photo by Andrew Taylor from Poulsbo, United States, is may be not that spectacular, but nicely done with this white background.

Something to talk about: my favorite quote of the weekabout the struggle between individuals and “power structures”

The struggle is always between the individual and his sacred right to express himself and the power structure that seeks conformity, suppression, and obedience.

This struggle indeed always existed – in societies and in any form of organizations, like in companies for instance.
In the era of social software and Web 2.0 this struggle becomes more exciting, since it shifts some power away from the “power structures” to the individuals. 
Are you brave enough to grab that opportunity to speak up, to share what you know and what is on your mind ?
