"Europeans often complain that Americans just don’t understand us. Having spent five months in the US last year, I realise that the reverse is also true."

Bill Gates interview: How the world will change by 2030. Listening to this man is always inspiring, whatever you think of some of his philanthropic endeavors.

Leveraging the economic flexibility, government interaction, and private sector research and development he has pretty much "played the game" of affecting billions of lives dramatically.

Watch the video, let me know what you think of his vision of the next 15 years!

If Google had a "slow internet & slow phone day" their apps would improve tenfold in a month.

It's really hard to believe every quad-core 2GB Android feels slower than an iPhone 3gs from years ago

"We showed people what they looked like in ultraviolet, & wondered aloud if they wanted to put on some damn sunscreen already."

Great city branding project: Covington Kentucky, high fives all around!

Definitely a fresh and memorable approach for a city rebrand, will keep an eye open to see how this one evolves. It should be a fun ride.

+Joshua (WorkAtHomeRecruiter.com) The whole binaural thing is quite a technical marvel to listen at, sadly, most of the "popular" videos using it are of girls whispering, not my cup of tea
