Chance Favors The Connected Mind

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).

John Berger’s WAYS OF SEEING

I found John Berger’s book and series “Ways Of Seeing” pretty damn mindblowing when I first encountered it back in film school. It changed the way I look at filmmaking or more precisely, image making. Glad to find it on YouTube.

NYC Cinema Tour: Civilization

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.

Civilization by Marco Brambilla from CRUSH on Vimeo.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
