Take a look at the amazing animations done by Alan Becker. He is the son of Bob, a friend of mine in Ohio, who is also an artist. What a wonderful skill! Alan would love to do freelance Flash animations for people so contact him at his website alanbecker.net

This woman is amazing.

Conveying information is done in a manner unique to the generation in which you developed your skills. This article gives a sense of how Millennials (think under 35) integrate the content of marketing messages they get via the Internet. Their mindset is quite different from Boomers and those in between. It is easy to forget that point. This has instructional value beyond Internet marketing.

There are times when you want to live large and think of how you can make an impact on the whole world.

There are other times when it seems right to live small. I like these dwellings that use space well - and can be placed anywhere!

Just another example of how the universe just happened to exist. There is no design or underlying principle or pattern guiding all things. . . . . . . [NOT!]

Liberty in North Korea - a request

I am passing along a request of my daughter, Grace (20). She is an officer of a college affiliate of the Liberty In North Korea (LINK) group. They focus on creating awareness of the problems in North Korea and of those who seek to escape that land for a better life elsewhere.

She has taken on a challenge of fundraising $3000 so they can sponsor one person out of North Korea through China to the South and then back into South Korea. The money they raise will be matched by another anonymous foundation up to $50,000.

If you think this is a worthy cause, please consider helping her reach her goal and assist someone in North Korea reach freedom. You can make a donation here:

Thank you for giving time (and hopefully a donation) to consider this. I'm very proud of Grace. She is a  student at the University of Minnesota in an Honors program with a double major in political science and global studies

We clearly live in an era of cognitive dissonance.
