Best comedian I just discovered: James Veitch. I love his storytelling style. I asked him what tech he used to make his presentations and he said it was Keynote. Now if I could only find the sweet tech for a clicker… Watch this bit on Conan and if you like it, look up his Ted talks!
Quote about the future that got me thinking: Richard Branson said in a recent interview “I suspect … we’ll actually look back on the wholesale slaughter of animals, and the way we did it, and be slightly embarrassed about that.”
What podcast I’m listening to: This interview on Democracy Now! with Muhammad Yunus. He was the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Winner and he talked about his new book, The World of Three Zeros: The New Economics of Zero Poverty, Zero Unemployment, and Zero Net Carbon Emissions. His response when asked what we need to do to effect change caught my ear – “We have to teach our children in school that … we [can] live in a way so that our enjoying life will not harm the enjoyment of life of another country or other children… Then children will learn what are the things that I do harms and affects negatively on the children of other countries and so on, so that I become aware that there’s a link between what I do, what I consume, what lifestyle I have, on the other people’s lifestyle.
