Great Stories Outside of the Game
Former Cal football walk-on and star and current Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita was recently awarded the 2011 Angels in Adoption award by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute (CCAI) for his work on behalf of children in U.S. foster care and orphans around the world. Here’s his great acceptance speech video that he made: If you cannot see video above, click...
Wow, Taste-o-Vision 2.0 (well, maybe 1.5)
Kellogg’s has figured out how to give viewers the capability to taste from a video ad on its new Rice Krispies Squares Chocolate Bars… check this new ad out - they can actually give viewers a taste of the chocolate from the screen itself - It’s best experienced if you can watch this full screen: If you cannot see the video above, click here.

The Future of the Website
This is a great video, a set of brief comments from 4 New York techies as to where the website is headed. Some good comments about how websites should just generally know more about us, eliminating the need to keep re-entering information when we visit another site as well as facilitating the real-time conversation about your content. But the best comment is the one (at around the 2:44 mark) that...

If you were a ball, you'd see things this way

As this kind of thing gets perfected, you’ll be able to get amazing perspective on some of life’s greatest mysteries, such as what it would look like if you a ball making a splash hit...

An Infographic about Infographics That Reminds Me...
Infographics are great, and I love really good ones that illustrate something important. But this video cracked me up in that it tried to boil down the concept of infographics to the most basic level, and ended up being generally useless unless you had no idea that you could use colors and shape of text to illustrate a point you are trying to make. Check it out: The Value of Data...
