Quick question- what' the best way to create a branded intro screen graphic announcing the "HOA is About to Start" displayed beforehand to introduce the Hangout? Thank you for any help here!
It is incredible. I listen to it a couple times a year, it is that incredible. Full of insightful stories about people, lives, challenges and beliefs.
This is the dedactic parable he starts with: "There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says "Morning, boys. How's the water?" And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes "What the hell is water?”
That's in the first minute. If you've never heard it, consider setting aside 20 mins. I promise there is a ton here that will make you think - in a good way.
PS: There is a "remix" excerpted version of this speech with modern images. I find it distracting. I prefer this one, a blank video. It makes me focus on the message.
From the slightly shocking, checkout how many people speak English, to the delightful, 83 would be able to read and write, to the mind blowing, 15 would be undernourished and 21 would be overweight (!).
I would have love to have this as a "sliceable" dataset. For example it would be interesting to hover your mouse over the overweight and see what countries they are from, what age group, what language they speak. Or hover your mouse over Bengali speakers and see the rest of the data.
