My favorites for week 48, 2010

Big GrinSomething to laugh: my favorite comic strip of the weekabout new recipes

Thanksgiving Weekend has gone and Christmas season now started; for some it starts quiet early at the end of November already, as I can see when spotting all the lights turned on around their houses and in their gardens. Anyway, this is the time to try out a few new cooking recipes, don’t you think ? At least Herman thinks so …

NerdSomething to watch: my favorite video clip of the weekabout multi-tasking

This nice commercial of a hiring company presents: The Multi-Tasker ! And delivers an example that multi-tasking and productivity increase is not the same thing.

Everything – really everything ! – can be expressed in form of a presentation and some nice statistics and charts, don’t you think ?  Here is an example. A presentation titled: “Why I Hate my Best Friends Girlfriend”.

  Something to enjoy: my favorite photo  on flickr under a Common Creative licenseabout the faces of animals

This fish looks not amused, but it looks nice. This horse doesn’t look amused as well, but it is not a real horse. And this shark definitely looks hungry. But I guess all sharks look like this. Three nice animal portraits by Thomas Hawk:

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

"It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be …

Changes make our life so exciting, but also more complex and difficult to manage. We have to learn permanently, which I think is good, but we never become perfect or at least good in what we do, which I think is bad. Well, there is no free lunch. Every coin has two sides.
Change = Progress ? Not necessarily. Change is not always good. Especially if we change things just for the sake of changing, moving, looking agile.
