If you had seven seconds to explain the entire US Constitution - what would you include?  

How about the Right to Bear Arms and that this is a democratic republic where people can vote for change?

And if a whole 11 second was possible?  Well you'd let the entire one page Constitution to be read right?  You may even have a few seconds left over to do something else ;-)?  You could make a Snapchat maybe!

Wait, what did you say?  No the second part after "The..."?

Perhaps in a few months/years the work will be placed back on the listener eh?

 

Great article from The Guardian although this is old-hat news, no?  I read about it yesterday so it must be!

Why have an apology as part of your mobile signature?  Get over it - we're all on our mobiles for 51%+ of the day and who needs to spell correctly anyone today?  It's not like you can comprehend anything in seven seconds right!

The big question is:

Do people really laugh out loud when they say they do? I foolishly asked someone today and this is what I got back.

Hehe

Amazing photo essay that inspired today's DIFI.

It reminded me of "Material World"

It reminded me of "Material World"

A book published many years ago, and yet still holds true today.  It takes the notion of "material culture" and turns it on its head in terms of we are what we consume.

And what will the future look like for the kids and their bedrooms?

And what will the future look like for the kids and their bedrooms?

We don't know, but we can have an educated guess if we allow ourselves to follow the Up Series, one of the most important documentary projects in the history of cinema.

So today I came up with a new arcade game - DEF CON "4."

Check out the coins - which one do you think Ukraine will be using in a few months/years?

Oh Ukraine, where art thou?

Oh Ukraine, where art thou?

A great article shared by Lionel - what is up with Ukraine and why is it still in our feed - don't they know when have cute cats to cuddle with?

Bowling for votes

Bowling for votes

As happens often, the re-surfacing of digital content years old, filters back into one's feed.

Here's a great blast from the past from way back yonder '08

Nothing like a sweaty bare-chested dude on a horse

The macho-ness that gets votes, well scratch that, that gets publicity for people who wished they voted, couldn't better be defined than Vlad going saddle-back on a stallion.

Actually, it can get more macho.

 A-ha!    An  archeology project  to dig out the millions of discarded E.T. games from the 80s - one of the biggest flops from Atari.

The world doesn't have AC/DC

The world doesn't have AC/DC

Quite a bit of people don't have any access to the AC/DC.  Those of us who do, use way too much of it.  Thank goodness solar will change that, but unfortunately, there is a lack of commitment to actually do it. Servers that run the digital space consume a ton and none of the Big 3 run any of their SaaS with 100% solar - it isn't even part of their conversations.

 

 

AC/DC - Back in Black

Back in Black comes to 1.3B people in the world as soon as nightfall comes - cow dusk time.

Let's look at the world as it really is

Let's look at the world as it really is

Remember the globe, the world, that place we live?

Well this is what it looks like when you see the resources used by each continent.  I guess it is true that Americans are fat - but so is Europe - look how chubby China has gotten pumping out all of our cheap finished products delivered by container ship.

Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap(Full Album)

My buddy Paul shared a link on social that Malcolm Young, one of the rockers behind AC/DC, has taken a hit, and the band will be disbanding.

He is/was the guy who drove the sound.

AC/DC are one of the biggest acts in music and have influenced pretty much anyone who plays the guitar, drums, bass or sings.
