Interesting philantropy

Well, I assume +Sergey Brin intends on getting his investment back. But still…
It kind of makes me think of micro-credit for the riches :). I for one have lended $25 through +Kiva to a female entrepreneur in El Salvador. Still far from the whole buying properties to rent them below market value ;).
Great job mister Brin!

Reshared post from +Linda Lawrey

As a cofounder of Google, +Sergey Brin  has already done lots of very good things for the world on a macro scale.

He's given us a great technology that makes the Internet usable, created a company that provides jobs for tens of thousands of people, and donated millions to various charities. He's investing in genetic cures for diseases and space exploration, too.

With it, Brin is buying up downtown property in the small Silicon Valley town he lives in, and is renting it out at below market rates to stores he thinks families in the community need: a children's bookstore, a children's playspace, and a child-friendly coffee shop.

Like it or not, this animated comedy from George Lucas and Seth Green teaming up looks "interesting".

This whole new character design brings a whole new atmosphere to the Star Wars franchise and I personally find it relatevely good, when mixing up the design/animation and characters/jokes side of things.

What do you think? Some Star Wars fans finding this outrageous? 🙂

Amazing TED presentation on Femto-Photography

Watching this and thinking about where it might lead us to in the next decades is impressive, and truly jaw-dropping.
Thanks +Vic Gundotra for the share.

Today's non-jokey science video: a jaw-dropping video about a camera that records a trillion frames per second, fast enough to see the passing of a laser pulse through a coke bottle.  Truly staggering…I still can't quite believe this is possible.

New photowalk in Paris this thursday night

I might not make it but… there will be a special/international guest: +Scott Jarvie.

Scott is coming straight from Utah and… well he's kind of looking for a place to stay at for a couple nights (his first reason for coming to France being a wedding he's shooting on saturday).
So, if you can host him, would be great!

Else… why not have another photowalk on wednesday? +Photowalk Paris what do you think? 🙂
