Stadshuset — Stockholm
Gorgeous day, 21°C at our City Hall, where they hold the Nobel Prize banquet every year. Beautiful statues everywhere you look. =)

The Stockholm Triathlon this weekend is setting-up there, saw them today with their TV cameras and equipment. You can see a VIDEO of what it looks like, if you scroll down to the bottom of this page with information about that competition…

I'm telling-ya... Making money playing games and eating delicious food — I could have been a superstar! =P  I was born in the wrong generation!!! ;) …LoL… You don't have to speak Swedish or Korean to understand this story (the pictures say it all)... I would have made a fortune with this silly "mukbang" trend. =P
http://www.svt.se/nyheter/utrikes/natatande-viral-succe-i-sydkorea

This YouTube playlist link shows what the ”BJ Shoogi” mukbang videos actually look like — and some have close to a million views.  0.o https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBCY00Ox6Cins0oRwSLqNGA/videos?sort=p&view=0&flow=grid
Att mat och sociala medier hänger ihop är inget nytt. Men i jämförelse med senaste sydkoreanska internetflugan, som får tusentals att bänka sig framför direktsänd ”hetsätning”, bleknar alla sallader på Instagram.

VIDEO (7 mins) — Heartfelt... From all the right places. =)
Watch this video, great story... This little town convinced The Foo Fighters to give a concert there, through this crowd performance of one of their songs, by 1,000 musicians filmed for the world to see.  The coolest thing about this story is how clearly it shows a good-natured alignment of many modern underlying truths, below the surface: crowdfunding, artistic passion, music crossing borders, internet coordination, bigger-than-yourself thinking and the call-to-action weight of doing something positive that overflows with good-will to others.   Kudos to the band + their fans + everyone that felt moved-enough about this to spread it around — they ended up making this crowd-dream, a reality.  

Maybe they'll even inspire others to fuse together good-will in another creative way.

I found this to be rather entertaining as a puzzle game…

It's also funny to see Mattel fusing together dolls, games, toys, movies and cartoons with high-level production $ (animation, music) and getting lots of traction with fans in this day and age with these "Ever After High" and "Monster High" franchises, in many languages, including Swedish.  Times they are a-changing...  Never seen toys more "global".
Makes me curious about what this generation of kids will be playing when they're adults in a few years.

This is a good example of how interweaved apps, videos and media are these days.

I have to admit that in terms of the artwork involved, these teams are doing a really good job.  Kudos to +Ever After High and +Monster High plus their partners in all these efforts.

VIDEO (50 mins) — Audacious goals = Genuine & interesting story.
An engaging and surprisingly non-technical talk about the highs and lows of startup success, given that this story comes from Debbie Sterling [CEO, GoldieBlox] at the Apple World Wide Developers Conference 2015. Advice about setting goals despite the challenges you face.

VIDEO (13 mins) — Gaming's Deeper Ideas push OUR buttons. =P
Future games will get ever-better at making us "tick".
This short analysis [before 2015, spoiler alert Bioshock Infinite] highlights some surprising depths that fundamental questions hidden within modern story-telling gameplay force players to consider, through the themes & choices of their gameplay.

VIDEO (5 mins) — Cars, playing soccer. =) Crazy fun football twist…
Cool concept, well polished. Reviews all say "Rocket League" by Psyonix is a modern online gem with teamwork that has many gamers replaying the game over & over.  The Guardian review says it all. PC & PS4.

Changing beauty is coming in "Fractal Lab".  It... Looks... AMAZING!
Just watch! =)

Change art you create by exploring visually stunning fractal images as they morph in real-time... Shut-up and take my money kind-of-stuff! =P
Actually, it's going to be open-source... RESPECT.
