I have recently really gotten into Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. (I mostly listen to it as a podcast.)

Usually Oprah interviews her guests, but in this episode, Glennon Doyle Melton shares her personal story and asks all of us: What would happen if we stopped being afraid of our pain?

It really moved me.

“Team Human”

Humans are no longer valued for our creativity, says media theorist Douglas Rushkoff — in a world dominated by digital technology, we’re now just valued for our data. In a passionate talk, Rushkoff urges us to stop using technology to optimize people for the market and start using it to build a future centered on our pre-digital values of connection, creativity and respect. “Join ‘Team Human.’ Find the others,” he says. “Together let’s make the future that we always wanted.”

Virtual Choir

Completely mesmerized by Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir. The Virtual Choir is a global phenomenon, creating a user-generated choir that brings together singers from around the world and their love of music in a new way through the use of technology. Singers record and upload their videos from locations all over the world. Each one of the videos is then synchronised and combined into one single performance to create the Virtual Choir.

(I recently started a real life choir, inspired by James Sill’s CreativeMornings “talk: last December!)
