A very funny video by the +NASA Curiosity team staring "the mohawk guy" :))) It seems they plan to stay in the public spotlight for longer than "7 minutes" :D

 +SpaceX, now we are expecting you guys to answer to this provocation by making your own funny music video!!!
Take a look at "We’re +NASA and we know it" http://t.co/zYtzKEfp by @Satire via +Washington Post  #MSL

This is really unexpected - but awesome - news! I am a huge fan of integrated UX and Ubuntu is following that trail.

I find it puzzling how people still manage to stick with Windows - the usability cannot even be compared...
See the new Ubuntu Web Apps integration feature in action at Introducing Ubuntu Web Apps - it will be coming to Ubuntu 12.10 soon and an Ubuntu 12.04 PPA will also be available soon too.

I had no idea there were so many astronomical clock around Europe! So far I have only managed to visit the one in Prague - guess I'll have to add few more destinations to my "Places to Visit" list ;)

Ok, now I am really impressed by this new Ubuntu For Android feature!

I am still not sure how useful it will be in real life - it is probably going to require some change of habits to maximize the potential. I woner what happens when you connect it to a computer that already runs Ubuntu. Some sort of "sync" would be awesome...

Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world, played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes at a Metro station in Washington, D.C. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before, Joshua Bell sold-out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100 each to sit and listen to him play the same music. But, once put in a different environment, the beautiful music he was creating went almost unnoticed.

It's a very disappointing result of the +Washington Post sociological experiment, one that gives a grim view of today's lifestyle and predefined standards for public taste.

I hope some of you will start turning on your sleeping senses while walking through the life - hear a bird singing on a tree, feel the captivating scent coming from the local baker's or feel the tickling of a cool winter breeze on your cheeks...
