My favorites for week 6, 2011

Big GrinSomething to laugh: my favorite comic strip of the weekabout being social

How social are we these days when we meet with friends and spent most of our time with our mobiles, and when it rings we turn around and show them our backs ? Comic strips like “Moderately Confused” and “Herman” make that a topic to think about again and again …

ApplauseSomething to learn: my favorite tip of the weekabout URLs in microblog streams

NerdSomething to watch: my favorite video clip of the weekabout ice bears and coke

  Something to enjoy: my favorite photo  on flickr under a Common Creative licenseabout the Eiffel Tower in Paris

Under the Eiffel
"Under the Eiffel" by Stuck in Customs.

Awesome shot of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, taken by Trey Ratcliff, whom I feature here exactly one year ago. I wonder what focal length he used for this one.
