Animated lectures have become one of my fave web content forms. Most of my pleasures of this sort have come from tips from my wife as to what is posted to YouTube via RSA Animate (I’ve posted some of these before).
The “trailer” for Steven Johnson’s new book “Where Good Ideas Come From” was via a Fred Wilson post, and makes a good case for why we should not lament this Culture Of Distraction (and if you are wondering what to get me for my birthday, it’s on my list).
Context may not be everything, but it is a hell of a lot. Marco Brambilla’s video installation for The Standard Hotel’s elevators is a real joy. You might find me just going up and down for hours sometimes. It won’t be the same, but I suggest if you can’t get there, to take you laptop to the largest staircase you can find and start climbing while watching the video below.
