It is an interesting world we are creating…this TED talk by Kevin Slavin argues that “we’re living in a world designed for — and increasingly controlled by — algorithms. In this riveting talk from TEDGlobal, he shows how these complex computer programs determine: espionage tactics, stock prices, movie scripts, and architecture. And he warns that we are writing code we can’t understand, with implications we can’t control.”

Wow. Fascinating talk by Mickey McManus, President / Chief Executive Officer at MAYA (If you haven’t heard of them, check them out HERE! They work on some incredible stuff!)

At TEDx CMU, he talks about what nature’s design patterns can teach us about computing…Containerization, liquid currency, and the possibilities of a trillion node world all packed into 20 minutes of TED….watch it HERE!

 

And although I don’t understand even close to all the stuff he touches on, it is incredibly inspiring and makes me feel like a kid, like anything is possible and the future is something exciting, like I just cant wait for tomorrow, to explore and make things!

Computer + refrigerator = one awesome item?

Check out the iCool project by Belarusian designer Alexey Dmitriev. He suggests replacing magnets, notes and other typical fridge clutter with the functional touchscreen display. The screen comes in different sizes (even door-length) and incorporates Apple or Android widgets. And yes, I would buy this. Check it out HERE!
