21st Century Realized

Ok, so a picture is worth a thousand words. And a video is worth so many more, which is specially convenient as I'm not putting much effort into utilizing words in this blog these days.

I was reading NemoZen (?) and came across this post about why the WII remote is so much cooler than it is in the context society uses it today.

YouTube led to more YouTube and I ended up here, which's ... pretty darn amazing!

Hippos vs. Cheetahs

I am at 1:59 of this video as I post this ... but it came from a friend who always sends me links that'd make spamming worthy if only I had the right motivations. So I post this, and I trust you'll learn & enjoy:

This grab-you-by-the-throat speech by Ghanaian economist George Ayittey unleashes an almost breathtaking torrent of controlled anger toward corrupt leaders and the complacency that allows them to thrive. These "Hippos" (lazy, slow, ornery) have ruined postcolonial Africa, he says. Why, then, does he remain optimistic? Because of the young, agile "Cheetah Generation," a "new breed of Africans" taking their futures into their own hands.
[I am at 4:08 now ... I think I should share another link from the same friend]

Please, avoid becoming a fufu-head!
