And welcome to December!

Here are some Friday videos.

» Hans Rosling’s 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

Hans Rosling's 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes

“Hans Rosling’s famous lectures combine enormous quantities of public data with a sport’s commentator’s style to reveal the story of the world’s past, present and future development. Now he explores stats in a way he has never done before – using augmented reality animation.”
A bit overwhelming but really clearly explained.

» Jeb Corliss wing-suit demo

Jeb Corliss wing-suit demo

A compilation of several of Corliss’ favorite basejumping sequences. This blows my mind.
On average I’m getting sent at least one new video of Corliss per week. It’s addictive.

» The T-Mobile Welcome Back

The T-Mobile Welcome Back

“Watch arriving passengers be given a welcome home to remember at Heathrow Terminal 5.”
There have recently been a batch of “flash-mob” spontaneous musical events in several major cities. It’s cool to see, marketing stance or not.
Also see this one at Toronto Eaton Centre.
