A high-end narrated 3-D animation of the “inner life of a cell.” Very cool. Warning: lots of medical terminology.
Where can you find some good (low-cost or no-cost) images? Here’s a helpful list.

If you use Facebook at all, you’ll get a kick out of this spoof glimpse into Facebook 30 years in the future.

And finally, an inspirational year-end treat. Patrick Hughes – born without eyes, crippled from birth, gifted musician – and a member of the University of Louisville marching band. Amazing.

It’s official – Style has now replaced Substance (30 second audio).

Would you pay $120.00 for a beer?

Something as simple as a water droplet can make a great photo. Examples here and here.

Do you have teenagers (I have 3…so far). Then this will make sense to you! It is now posted in our kitchen…

I’m Dreaming of a White…Thanksgiving?

A mid-November surprise, before many of the leaves have come down.

Sure is beautiful, if ultimately ephemeral – probably won’t last through the day.

Do you ever feel like you’re pulling too much weight? You’re not alone…It’s not out yet, but looks like an interesting new web application…JotSpace, a free on-line whiteboard.

Just for fun, let this site load, and watch the action.

Cassini takes a phenomenal shot from behind Saturn (extremely high res). Yes, that little dot behind the rings is Earth. I may have linked to this one before. Well, it’s just as impressive today!

Iguanas, Monkeys, and Bloggers

Last night, CK orchestrated a get-together for any available marketing bloggers, at a cozy little bar (Iguana) in Manhattan. When I saw who was coming, including Toby Bloomberg (up from Atlanta), I decided that this was a must-do event.

CK, David Reich, G. Kofi Annan, Curious George, CB Whittemore, Greg Verdino, Tangerine Toad, Carolyn Townes (The Wild Wiki Woman of the W list), David Berkowitz, Ann Handley, and a couple of others all crowded into a corner and gabbed, compared notes, took pix, and generally had a great time.

This was my first time being able to gather with a group of the bloggers who have become “virtual friends” through our various collaborative projects and posts. And what a delightful time it was. Admittedly, doing this was a bit out of my comfort zone – I am not a city person, a bar hopper, a native schmoozer, or a night owl – but I knew that the company would make it worth the effort.

Below, some pix to commemorate the event.

What’s your real age? This fun calculator asks you some questions, then calculates your “real” age, and your life expectancy. After taking it, I came downstairs and told my wife that I had some good news and some bad news. Good news: she is now married to a 33-year old! Bad news: she’ll be stuck with me until I’m 91…

It’s been quite an intense week, what with traveling for consulting, soccer coaching/logistics, and a car engine that met the automotive equivalent of the Grim Reaper late one night. So, not much posting!

Nonetheless, a few random links of interest as we slide into the weekend:

The amazing shapes people see in clouds (with pix).

The Dilbert Mission Statement generator (example: It is our job to continually engineer emerging resources and assertively leverage other’s resource-leveling information while promoting personal employee growth)

Niagara Falls from above (awesome picture).

Hubble telescope’s Top 100 images.
