My favorites for week 6, 2010


  Something to watch: my favorite video clip of the weekabout a funny ( I mean: bad ) accident in the gym

OK, we all know: there is some risk in any sport. And probably not everyone is made for any sport.

Cool Something to discover: my favorite bookmark of the weekabout Life, the “game”
  The Game Of Life is the best-known example of a cellular automaton, a discrete model studied in computability theory. There are many implementations out there, but the one I found here with these tiny growing mushrooms is really nice, don’t you think ? 

I tested it with a “glider” and it seems it does work right ! The rules of “Life” are explained at the bottom of the screen:

Mushrooms follow these rules:
For each generation,
a mushroom with 1 or 0 neighbor dies (loneliness),
a mushroom with 4 or more neighbors dies (overcrowding),
a mushroom with 2 or 3 neighbors survives (stability),
an empty space with 3 neighbors sprouts a new mushroom (birth).

  Something to enjoy: my favorite photo  on flickr under a Common Creative licenseabout Hearst Castle

So Many Wonderful Things at Hearst, So Little Time
"So Many Wonderful Things at Hearst, So Little Time" by Stuck in Customs.

Another nice shot from California, this time from Hearst Castle, a remarkable place at the scenic California West Coast somewhere between San Francisco and Los Angeles, provided by one of the flickr members well known for sharing great photos under a CC license: Trey Ratcliff aka Stuck in Customs. “So Many Wonderful Things at Hearst, So Little Time”.

Something to talk about: my favorite quote of the weekabout leadership

The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader.

If you are not really convinced about this quote you might want to watch this video in Derek Sivers blog posting “Leadership Lessons from Dancing Guy”.  And you probably will agree: the first follower might play a more important role then the “perceived leader”, as I would call the shirt-less dancing guy. The real leader of a team or in a particular situation might not be the person standing in front of others.
