Is there one link, story, picture or thought that you saw online this week that you think somebody you know must see?
My friends: Alistair Croll (Solve for Interesting, Tilt the Windmill, HBS, chair of Strata, Startupfest, FWD50, and Scaletechconf; author of Lean Analytics and some other books), Hugh McGuire (Rebus Foundation, PressBooks, LibriVox) and I decided that every week the three of us are going to share one link for one another (for a total of six links) that each individual feels the other person “must see.”
Check out these six links that we’re recommending to one another:
- Photographer Captures Frozen Waves of Colorado Lake Looking Like Glass Dunes – My Modern Met. “You’ve probably heard of those rocks that appear to move across flat deserts. Well, did you know waves can suddenly freeze solid? If you can’t get outside much, these shots will make you smile.” (Alistair for Hugh).
- I Have Important New Questions About The Johnnycabs In Total Recall – Jalopnik. “We can all use a little relief from the constant barrage of news, statistics, and newly-minted bloggers. So, I’m going to change it up a bit this week. If you’re like me, the nineties adaptations of Sci-fi flicks like Total Recall, Johnny Mnemonic, and their ilk were goofy and ham-fisted, but fun. Revisiting them (which you may be doing on Netflix anyway) is fascinating if only to see what we got wrong (An SD card under Keanu’s skull would have solved a lot of problems, TBH). Anyway, here’s a take on the self-driving cabs of Total Recall, seen through modern eyes. Predicting the future is hard, man.” (Alistair for Mitch).
- 13 Levels of Beatboxing: Easy to Complex – Wired – YouTube. “How to beatbox. Boots. Ts’. Cats. Ts’. Boots. Ts’. Cats. Ts’.” (Hugh for Alistair)
- Oceans can be restored to former glory within 30 years, say scientists – The Guardian. “Some good news?” (Hugh for Mitch).
- Why it’s too early to start giving out “immunity passports” – MIT Technology Review. “I saw someone post this comment on Facebook when this concept was mentioned: ‘What color will the star be that we have to wear?’ It really hit home. As much as we’re worried about Covid 19, we have become a very strange society. Watching our neighbors, seeing who is a passenger in a car, analyzing people in the park… in the supermarket. Before the pandemic, we worried about big companies and their surveillance. Now, it’s all of us doing it to all of us. How will this shake out? At what price our privacy and security?” (Mitch for Alistair).
- SlowTV – YouTube. “How to chill… YouTube style. Endless videos of endless scenes to help you take it easy in a world where nothing is easy anymore.” (Mitch for Hugh).
