What do we know about how we think? Nothing.

Wanna know some more about the way we all are thinking these days? Once we step back and look at our self with other eyes some interesting things come to light. In this animated documentary you can see some of the secrets regarding our brain and guess what: the two hemispheres depend on each other a lot. So, at least one mith busted.

RSAnimate has done this small documentary based on the words Iain McGilchrist, British psychologist and writter, had written in his book: The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World. Thanks to Open Culture for bringing this up.

#Occupy TehGeekTive

As the Occupy Phenomenon conquers the world it was almost impossible not to find memes. And there are a LOT of memes for #occupy[everything] out there. Some #occupydarkmatter or #occupyjupiter.

Today I found out that one of my favorite blogs, The Presufer, was #occupy-ed too. Not long time after #occupytehgeektive had taken place, as you can see in the image below.

So, don’t let me be among the few who shares the view of #occupy movement. Be #occupy-ed.

Google Maps takes you to a helicopter ride

If I’d name a thing that Google has done to put the world at our feet then Google Map would be that. If you use Google Earth too then you can enjoy the best virtual tours at the cheapest prices.

Recently, Google offered aerial view of the path you are taking and you can even fly over it like you were in an helicopter. For this to work you need to install Google Earth Plugin, then go to Google Maps, input starting and ending points of your path and then press on play, under the calculated travelling time.

Almost immediately you will be lead to an interactive animation. And I must say that I like it a lot. Did a couple of tests and even noticed the water having moving waves. Sweet. Check that for your self. Click on View Larger Map, below this map. Via [Presurfer].
