- Top 10 TED Talks
I haven't watched them all yet, but I can highly recommend the ones by David Gallo, Johnny Lee and Blaise Aguera y Arca. The last one didn't quite make my mandible transverse a vertical direction but navigating around the David Hockney style Flickr photo montage is definitely a wow moment.
- Simply Noise
Now the summer holidays are here, one of the disadvantages of working from home is when Duncan has one of his friends over and they are playing some kind of exciting video game. Even when they are on the other side of the house, I can still hear all the "Oh yeah!"'s and other loud utterances. If I need to concentrate on something, this is when I just plug in my head phones, visit this web site and set the slider to blank out their noise.

- 30 Most Incredible Abstract Satellite Images of Earth
These are great. I should price out how much it would cost to have these printed out and framed by an online photo service.
