Interdependence Gets Weird

posted by Ethan Nichtern

As mentioned by I.D. Project Board Member and all-around homie Jerry in class on Monday Night, the video and story:
“This is the video from Beijing to the song that my boyfriend [wrote in NYC] in 2002. The song is called Taboo and it’s about how much we love playing the board game Taboo with our friends which can really get out of hand. Of course the kids from Beijing seem to have missed the sarcasm. We randomly found this on youtube. It’s pretty weird.”

Reminds me of the episode of the Simpsons where Homer finds himself on the box of an obscure brand of Japanese detergent.
Here’s the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Marge_We_Trust
I really can’t believe there’s a wikipedia entry on individual Simpsons episodes. Luv it!

Great video. And that beat is really addictive in a “Cheap techno beat meets 8 bit Nintendo” kind of way. I’ve replayed it 4 times so far.
Any idea how these guys/gals from Beijing got ahold of it?

Mixing technology and practice
There were many more good sessions at the Wisdom 2.0 conference this weekend. The intention of the organizers is to post videos. I'll let you know when. Here are some of my notes from a second panel. How do we use modern, social media technologies — such as this blog — to both further o

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
