Two men are sitting on top of a ferris wheel, the people below look like dots

Tuesday, January 31st, 2006

Key Quote: "Tell me, would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped
moving forever? If I offered you £20,000 for every dot that stopped,
would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you
calculate how many dots you could afford to spare?"

A good article on "creative destruction".

Key Quote: "
IKEA is a fully immersive, 3D environmental adventure that allows you
to role-play the character of someone who gives a shit about home
furnishings. In traversing IKEA, you will experience a meticulously
detailed alternate reality filled with garish colors, clear-lacquered
birch veneer, and a host of NON-PLAYER CHARACTERS (NPCs) with the
glazed looks of the recently anesthetized."

Serenity the Movie

Saturday, January 28th, 2006

SerenityposterJust bought the DVD.

For a lazy Sunday afternoon watching: Woah… It has everything a sci-fi movie should have: Humor, action, intrigue and ships with laser weapons blazing.

And explosions.

I still stand by what I said previously,  you can’t help but get the impression that Joss Whedon is try hard to garner support for the Firefly series.

And I still think the poster makes a nice modern dance advertisement.

However, this is a nice movie that is worth watching. Too bad I missed it on the big screen.

Looks like I have a new series of DVDs to collect… 8\

Why we love Singapore Scientists

Friday, January 27th, 2006

Because:

  1. They empower us.
  2. They remember things.
  3. They are alert.
  4. They spearhead collections and curations.
  5. They add things.
  6. They are cunning linguists.
  7. They perform impressively.

My sincerest apologies to Dachsie. You are right. Singapore scientists rock. Even when fiddling around with urine.
