A great way to increase creativity is to look at a situation from a different perspective. That is exactly what these video do. Make sure to watch each video from the beginning till the end or you won't see the ingenuity. via paul isakson
The copyright laws that we know are killing creativity. They were made when few people were making, sharing and mixing movies, photos, music... So it's time for Creative Commons. This video tells you why. Thanks to Piet for the tip!
We would be remiss if we did not mention the financial crisis. Crisis, like getting fired, can be seen as an opportunity. That's how the people in this Newshour piece called Jobless Find Creative Voice saw things.

Here's the trailer of Fuel. "Josh Tickell and his Veggie Van take us on the road as we discover the pros and cons of biofuels, how Americas addiction to oil is destroying the U.S. economy and how green energy can save us, but only if we act now." via core77
Today, after going for a run, a thought entered my mind: What if reality is a dream we all believe in? That would mean that everything is possible as long as we all share the same belief. If you throw a stone up in the air you expect it to go down at some point. We call that gravity. But if we all really believed that the stone would continue to float in the air forever, what would happen then?Dreams vs reality In dreams everything is possible. We all believe that. In 'reality' not everything is possible. We all (or most of us ;-) ) believe that. But what if we all changed our view on that? What if reality offers the same possibilities as dreams do? What if you would only feel pain after getting stabbed by a knife because you believe getting stabbed by a knife is painful? Hypnosis While being under hypnosis people can be told that they are going to eat a sweet peach, but in reality they are offered a lemon. When they eat the lemon they take big bites and really seem to enjoy the 'sweet flavour'. So by changing their thoughts, they experience what they think they are experiencing. They actually believe they are eating a peach. That alone is enough to change their experience of eating the lemon. What does this tell us? If you are able to control your thoughts, you are able to control reality. Or is that a step too far? Should it be: By changing the way you think, you can change your experiences. Let me know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment.
Friday. Time for some fun. Ricky Gervais and the bible. Need I say more? Have a good weekend!

Yet this all turned out to be a misunderstanding, and no such law was proposed. Rajesh investigates the way we view the lens and the way it views us." Interesting to see that what can and can't be filmed isn't even clear to the authorities. via dutch cowboys
