Well, I love reading. Especially books, the real ones, made out of paper and ink. This is probably the reason why I have found the idea of giving free books away to capture the attention of potential local customers a great one.
Last Christmas Bookworld, an Australian based company, transformed some bus shelters in Sydney and in Melbourne into bookshelves full of free books for people to help themselves.
Bookworld tried to create more consciousness around the fact that they are local and they offer books at a reasonable price. Even better, they guarantee to beat Amazon price by 10% and offer free and fast delivery across Australia.

Yesterday I had a conversation with some friends about how people are disconnected these days.
We use social media, smart phones all the time to be in contact to everybody but we are actually disconnected with the people that surround us.
Well, this is why I really liked what a Thai mobile network did.
DTAC is encouraging people to “Disconnect to connect”—to put down their mobile devices for face time with friends and family that sometime seems to disappear behind the screen of some of our every-day-devices.
Well to better understand what I mean just watched the video below.
Alan Watts was a British-born-philosopher, who’s probably best known for popularising Eastern beliefs for Western audiences in the 60′s and 70′s. Having stumbled on his work, I’ve now discovered an entire world of Watts’ lectures turned into mesmorising videos that explore topics like our relationship with money, living with consciousness, personal leadership … and the path to a good life.
Project Third Eye is a really wonderful app. A clever way of bringing together visually impaired people and micro volunteers through mobile phone technologies to give them real time description of their surroundings.
This fascinating photo essay by Peter Menzel takes a look at what a week’s worth of groceries looks like in 15 different countries around the world. Beyond the obvious stereotypes like beer in Germany and Pizza in the US, it provides a pretty sobering perspective on both the quantity and quality of our ’1st world’ diets. CLICK HERE to see more
I was surfing the web and came across this video on Youtube, ‘Birth to Death as told by Cinema’.
This short video tries to capture the ‘journey of life’ using clips from over 150 movies.
The result is incredible, just watch it and judge.
I came across this today and it made me smile :)
