This video is on autoplay for some reason. Took me 5min to figure out where the sound was coming from in my rss reader. Dunno if you can shut that off but its no bueno for those of us in an office.

Oh no! Autoplay is no bueno. Thanks for pointing that out. It should be fixed now.

Thanks for that. I’ve seen this up close here in Texas but never a group this large or this close. So deeply heart achingly beautiful.

We get this in Brighton (UK) a lot – it’s one of my favourite sights, watching them swoop & fold over the abandoned pier at sunset http://bit.ly/tovIMA

This video is a simple example of the complexity of nature. Totally inspiring on so many levels. When designing experiences I try to look around and it’s not to hard to find. Unfortunately, others see this and are inspired to create without having the best interests of humans in mind. Biomimicary is a powerful design tool, in the wrong hands it can be deadly.
