Learn Something @ MIT TechTV

11 Aug

The other day I stumbled upon the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) online video channel and had I difficulty pulling myself away from the array of lectures and experiments there. I watched a lecture on Google algorithms, the creation of an advanced space suit and even watched Salsa lessons. All these videos truly give clear look into the lifestyle at MIT.

In this new era of online dominance, it’s time to shout “I Want My MIT TV.”

Plain English Video Series Rocks

6 Jun

Jason Therrien directed me to this website a few months back and since then, I can’t stop watching this channel. How many times have you been in a conversation and you asked someone to explain that in plain English? Denzel Washington in one of his murder investigation movies said to a suspect, “Talk to me as if I were a 5 year old.” In other words, explain to me a few easy sentences what you mean. Plain English by Common Craft takes any topic you can think of and breaks it down into 2 minute YouTube video a 5 year could understand.

Mashup For You, Mashup For Me

13 Mar

What is a mashup? I define a mashup as combining unique items together to achieve something dramatically different that is overly unique. This act of synthesis is currently driving the innovation of today’s technology. Think about when chocolate met peanut butter to create Reese’s cup.

Google maps combined old MapQuest technology with Ajax to create innovative maps. Microsoft took the versatility of Flash and combined it with .net to create SliverLight. Thur-You layers single YouTube clips over each other to form new music tracks.

George Nemeth twittered Thru-You, a mash-up by Kutiman, that is so unique it will make your head spin. This artist took the time to listen to individual video clips of musicians, find similarities and then combine the clips to make new music. I can’t stop listening.

More posts from Leading Hands about mash-ups are coming.
