Great photo - I wish I had the skills and time to shoot stuff like this so I can reach my ultimate goal of photowalking with +Trey Ratcliff
 
I was shooting some street photography in Beijing yesterday in the Hutongs. There was a street performer who had trained his bird to fly to people's hands and pickup change. Everyone had their hands out to give him money. Very clever...

Can you knit? Oil spill penguins need you to knit them sweaters! For real!! http://www.grist.org/list/2011-10-18-you-know-you-want-to-knit-a-sweater-for-a-penguin (thanks @wind2energy)
Now is the time for all good knitters to come to the aid of some penguins. The New Zealand oil spill has left the little guys in need of some warmth and protection, and a Kiwi yarn store has posted pa...

In-depth explanation of why Siri matters.
Robert Scoble originally shared:
 
One reason I was underwhelmed about Apple's announcements this week is because I've known about Siri for about two years now. I just reviewed my video with Siri's founders and it's stunning the strategic importance of this that I saw: You should watch the video I did with Siri's founders: http://scobleizer.com/2010/02/08/why-if-you-miss-siri-youll-miss-the-future-of-the-web/

It's not every day that the future visits my house 18 months before it visits everyone else's, but that is a day I won't ever forget!
Why if you miss Siri you'll miss the future of the Web. February 8, 2010 By Robert Scoble. Siri is the most useful thing I've seen so far this year. But after playing with it, getting an inter...

Breaking through the noise (and clutter).

Every little trick to "go viral" and "guaranteed success" has been tried, copied and beaten to death. Hence it is amazing that people still find a way to stand out. All it takes? A little bit of creativity.

Example of the day... Dollar Shave Club.

It is really a $9/mo shave club, but whatever. Even if you are the most jaded social media veteran of the viral wars, I'm sure this will make you smile.

PS: Here's the real metric of success for a viral video: % of clean on topic comments submitted. The average for a YouTube video is 0.2%. For this video it stands at 99%. Real. Measurable. Success. :)

10 reasons why US crime is falling

1. The Obama effect
2. Fall in demand for crack
3. Smarter policing
4. Number crunching
5. Increased availability of legal abortion
6. More criminals were behind bars
7. Decline in children's exposure to lead in petrol
8. The baby boomers grew up
9. Video games keeping young people off the streets
10. Proliferation of camera phones

That seems they threw in everything in that top ten list. Do you agree with it? Better... Got a favorite?

Very interesting. A few superficial thoughts:
1. Maybe, but I'd be surprised if this had much to do with the falling rates. The drop had been going on long before anyone had heard of Obama.
2. Probably true, although I suspect that a lot of the decrease in demand has been because crack users were punished so harshly that many are in prison now (see #6).
3 & 4. Sure. Better technology and information management make for better police, but notice they also make better criminals. The FBI Uniform Crime Reports don't measure identity theft, online fraud, computer hacking, etc., but those have surely increased in the last 20 years.
5. I've read this stuff, and still have no idea what to think about the impact of abortion.
6. Of course this is true. We pay a high price for it, but I can't imagine that this would not have an effect.
7. Could be. I do remember as a kid how much I liked the smell of gasoline. This may explain things about me.
8. Absolutely true. Everyone who has looked at this stuff realizes that crime -- at least the crimes measured by the FBI UCR -- is overwhelmingly a young person's game. As the next baby boom bubble reaches the late teen years, the rates will almost certainly go up again.
9. I love this one. We have suspected for years that lack of opportunity and education leads to boredom, and idle hands are more likely to get into trouble. It sounds very plausible that kids today are less bored because of all the entertainment options. The next anti-crime bill? A Nintendo DSI for every child..
10. Sounds like a stretch, but maybe.

FWIW
