My favorites for week 29, 2010

Big GrinSomething to laugh: my favorite comic strip of the weekabout work life integration

Looks like this dog has grasped the concept of Work Life Balance. Or even: Work Life Integration. Which to me by far is not the same thing.

Lucky Garfield. He was not so impressed by this dog anyway.

NerdSomething to watch: my favorite video clip of the weekabout tea candles

A lot of tea candles. a video camera of course, and a lot of creativity and a great idea had been ingredients for this awesome video: “Amazing Fire Animation! ”. “All I can say is ..this took over 2 weeks to do. A lot of fire, A lot of smok…”, says the creator of this video.

Cool Something to discover: my favorite bookmark of the weekabout a planetarium in your web browser
So you wanna see the stars in the sky and constellations from any place in the world at any time without installing any comprehensive software on your computer ? Then Neave Planetarium is for you – a planetarium in your web browser. Thanks, StumbleUpon, for recommending !

  Something to enjoy: my favorite photo  on flickr under a Common Creative licenseabout animal portraits

Lia M. from Vancouver BC, Canada came up with some nice animal portraits this week … from the zoo. The left one demonstrates nicely how you can make a portrait more interesting by cutting away part of the face or body ….

Something to talk about: my favorite quote of the weekabout long stories

  A good story can never be too long. Same holds true for presentations of course. Content and form go together here: anything can be interesting, if told right. And the best topic can become boring if communicated the wrong way. Which reminds me of my comment to the quote from last week about ignorant people.
