TED Tuesday - Derek Sivers

Today's TED Tuesday brings us Derek Sivers. Seems like a really chill guy with a knack for interesting observations. Each video is about 3 minutes long, so a nice break from the day to day boring stuff.

I've also uploaded two new episodes of the photo critic to vimeo; I just created an album there and made a side link on my blog for easier access. http://vimeo.com/album/212904

Cheers,
Serg

Oh man... I just realized that its 4/20 in 9 minutes....prepare for another 4/20 related post at sometime for celebratory purposes.

Thanks for the advice for filing the photos..gonna be working on that today.
*cheers* Happy 4/20 lol
If I had some I'd probably join ya, however, none of my friends here in my state smoke it, so yeah..
*shrugs*
I only smoked it when I lived in San Francisco...lol um yeah I had a few hippy friends. I miss those days..

The TED videos were interesting. Funny how something that seems so normal to us, is completely different and odd to someone else..

Like my friend in the Netherlands he says he doesn't understand why won't use what we call "military" time..he thinks it makes perfect sense, where to me it just is confusing. And my mind has a hard time figuring out what time of the day it actually is when it reads: 1800:01
Well I mostly don't like it because I have to use math then..why should "knowing what time it is" have to cause me to use math skills??

I have better things to do with my "time"...lol -ok corny I know.

Have a good day.

Hey Serg!

Watched your Derek Sivers links. Have you seen this talk by Seth Godin. Lots of food for thought and connections between the two speakers. Have an awesome week!
