We have come a long way. This is what a Go-Pro looked like in 1960s. Made me chuckle.
Since 2004 Rachel has been researching, working with biologists, and traveling all over the world to photograph continuously living organisms 2,000 years old and older. The work spans disciplines, continents, and millennia: it’s part art and part science. (In November of 2010 Rachel told her story at CreativeMornings.)
Her book contains 125 photographs, 30 essays on her 30 subjects, original inforgraphics, and contributions by New York Times science columnist Carl Zimmer and world-renowned curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Car-UX.com is a fascinating project by user experience designer Min Seung Song: a growing collection of UX image details of contemporary automobiles.

The office as we know it is boring — innovation requires something different. Here’s your chance to do something about it.
The Space Forward Ideas Competition is centered on a simple task: reimagining your workplace.

How would you reimagine your workplace? Enter for a chance to win.
Space Forward is sponsored by 1407 Broadway, a newly re-designed building and workspace in New York City that empowers forward-thinking leaders and companies to grow, create and achieve new possibilities.
“… a wise person is made, not born. Wisdom depends on experience, and not just any experience. You need the time to get to know the people that you’re serving. You need permission to be allowed to improvise, try new things, occasionally to fail and to learn from your failures. And you need to be mentored by wise teachers.”
Barry Schwartz, Our Loss of Wisdom
In this simple 3-minute TED talk, Dr. Laura Trice muses on the power of the magic words “thank you”. So powerful!
“There is no such thing as static happiness. Happiness is a mixed thing, a thing compounded of sacrifices, and losses, and betrayals.”
