Jeep Waterfall

28 01 2007

<center></center>Pretty cool video here of the Jeep Waterfall, an auto-show attraction that uses advanced falling-water technology to create branded liquid signage for the vehicle. From Detroit to Beijing, the Jeep Waterfall has mesmerized auto showgoers from across the globe. According to the waterfall’s builder, the system works like an ink-jet printer, with 3,000 valves organizing the droplets via computer program into visible logos and other messages, which appear as the droplets descend 24-feet into a trough. I would love to have this watergadget in my house (would love to have the house that could fit it). Also ties in nicely with Jeep’s nature vibe.

Honk Honk – Leadership Lessons from Geese

17 01 2007

Lessons from Geese
This very inspiring videoclip (2:17) was made by Saatchi&Saatchi. Lessons from the Geese” has been attributed to a number of authors. The research that I have done, however, seems to indicate that the original text for this piece was penned by Dr. Robert McNeish in 1972. The primary source that brought me to this conclusion was this comprehensive article.


below you see the text from the video.

“Leadership Lessons from Geese”

To show the importance of teamwork, we can take examples from the lives of geese.

Fact: As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the birds that follow. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock gains 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.

Lesson 1: People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

Fact: When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone. It quickly moves back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front of it.

Lesson 2: If we have as much sense as a goose we stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.

Fact: When the lead goose tires, it rotates back into the formation and another goose flies to the point position.

Lesson 3: It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership. As with geese, people are interdependent on each other’s skill, capabilities, and unique arrangements of gifts, talents, and resources.

Fact: The geese flying in formation honk to encourage those up in front to keep up their speed.

Lesson 4: We need to make sure that our honking is encouraging. In groups where there is encouragement, the production is much greater. The power of encouragement (to stand by one’s core values, and to encourage the core values of others) is the quality of honking we seek.

Fact: When a goose gets sick, wounded or shot, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again. Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.

Lesson 5: If we have as much sense as geese, we will stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we are strong.

Pirates of Silicon Valley

7 01 2007

Pirates of Silicon Valley (1999) is an unauthorized made-for-television docudrama written and directed by Martyn Burke. Based upon the book, Fire in the Valley: The Making of The Personal Computer, by Paul Freiberger and Michael Swaine, this film documents the rise of the home computer/personal computer through the rivalry between Apple Computer (Apple II and the Apple Macintosh) and Microsoft (DOS, IBM PC, and Windows). Noah Wyle and Joey Slotnick portray Apple founders Steve Job and Steve Wozniak. Anthony Michael Hall and John DiMaggio play Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer.

The central story of the film begins in the early 1970s and ends in 1985 when Steve Jobs resigned from Apple Computer. The film is also structured by a set of “book ends”: it begins and ends with Jobs’ return to Apple in 1997.

Wiki’s Wondere Wereld

2 11 2005

Wikipedia is toch wel een van de beste websites die laat zien hoe cool internet kan zijn (op een cleane manier). Het is een mega open source online encyclopedie. De gein is dat als een woord voorkomt op een pagina en dat woord heeft ook een eigen pagina op wikipedia het als hyperlink getoond wordt. Zo kan je dus van het een naar het andere onderwerp doorklikken en zo je kennis verdiepen en verbreden. Wat je hieronder ziet is een route die ik heb bijgehouden. Zo’n route ontstaat dus uit toeval maar heeft ook een human touch omdat de surfer kiest voor een link.
Het is iets maar wat het is …
