Overstepping Artifacts

Here is a video that is really surreal: it is all 3D fractals made in a program called Mandelbulb.
I always thought this sort of shape (solid fractals) would be ideal to make using a 3D printer (well, actually you could not really make them any other way!)  . . but of course it is completely useless and I am not exactly sure if you can call it "art" since it is all done by computer, the only artist input is choosing the formula for the program to express.  . . . . but hey, who cares, it looks awesome.

Moral Hazard

This post by Cory Doctrow is so good I just could not avid posting a link to it: it points to a common fallacy, one often used by the bullying types to justify getting rid of anyone who does not agree with their views. Thanks Cory !

Ten Dimensions

I have heard of many dimensions before, but it was never clearly explained to me HOW we might have extra dimensions nor how they would interact . . until this video which shows simply how it could all work.

Honest University Commercial

Yup, the Internet is full of garbage but occasionally there is a bit of gold. Enjoy.
