Wow. I can’t believe it’s already Xmas. Or December. Or 2012…

Here are some videos for your entertainment and informational needs.

» Clouds by Zach Sobiech

Clouds by Zach Sobiech

“Facing months to live, 17-year-old Zach is turning to music – writing and performing songs as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family. Zach was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2009. Since his diagnosis, Zach has endured several surgeries and months of chemo.”
Sad, but beautiful.
If this moved you, you may want to consider donating to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund, to fund research for the cancer that is taking his life.



“Charlie Brown returns home after years in New York to reconnect with old friends, Louis C.K. style.”
Kind of funny / sad.

GravityLight: lighting for the developing countries

“GravityLight is a revolutionary new approach to storing energy and creating illumination. It takes only 3 seconds to lift the weight which powers GravityLight, creating 30 minutes of light on its descent. For free.”
We need more inventions like these. Well done.

» DiResta: Hatchet

DiResta: Hatchet

“In this episode of DiResta, Jimmy has his way with an old hatchet and transforms it into a sweet little showpiece tool.”
Jimmy DiResta is a master carpenter / builder.
I was suggested this by my Boxee and I ended up watching every last one of his videos. This one is amazing though.
