Really excited to see Dan Ariely working on this. I love his books, and always find him super engaging and thoughtful:
They need a little bit more to get over the finish line, so if you find this kind of stuff interesting, please consider backing this project now on Kickstarter.
Who doesn’t love a good cover ?
A great talk by Dan – the $100 auction part is fascinating:
Insanely good, and take the advise of the person behind it:
PLEASE WATCH IN HD FULL SCREEN w/SOUND. It is a much better viewing experience. Hopefully you have a 1080P monitor and good connection. If not, bug a friend or colleague that does. It is worth it.
Maestro of YouTube Kutiman is at it again, this time releasing a music video titled “Thru-Jerusalem” that brings together local musicians to epitomize the sounds of their city.
Kutiman is Israel-based producer Ophir Kutiel, who recently released a song composed entirely of mashed-up YouTube videos (“My Favorite Color”) and made it onto Time‘s “50 Best Inventions of 2009″ list for a similar project, ThruYou.
The particular video — shot, edited and directed by Kutiman — was created for Jerusalem Season of Culture, for which he is the artist of the season.

Great interview with Matt Mullenweg on KTEH “This is Us!”:
Worth watching — and look out for yours truly who can be seen from various angles in this short 5 minute video :)
This ad is pretty awesome — and I think a lot of people will relate :)
One of the better, more sober shows I’ve seen lately on a range of issues including education, investment in R&D, and global competition. I wish there was more programming like this:
Fareed has gathered four of the top businessmen in America to tell us what’s at the heart of the job problem — how some many have been lost — and what the solutions are — how America can re-gain what its lost:
– Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO Google
– Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola
– Klaus Kleinfeld, CEO of Alcoa
– Lou Gerstner, who ran three American giants — RJ Reynolds, American Express & IBM
And Fareed will present solutions of his own — both for the nation and for the American worker.
Really recommend watching this: How do we fix the American dream? CNN Fareed Zakaria reports. Summary of show and clips here.
