How Facebook is Stealing Billions of Views

a lecture in English

Facebook just announced 8 billion video views per day. This number is made out of lies, cheating and worst of all: theft. All of this is wildly known but the media giant Facebook is pretending everything is fine, while damaging independent creators in the process. How does this work?

a lecture in English

A webseries debunking the myths of copying.
A week left on Indiegogo! http://igg.me/at/copyme

Episode number two is basically extending the talk about copying vs stealing. Before heading to deeper waters, we feel it's really important to cover these things at length. In the digital world, things are rather different.

How bombardier beetles bomb

a lecture in English

For as long as researchers have been studying the bombardier beetle they have been baffled by their ability to produce an internal explosion in their abdomen and then expel a jet of boiling, irritating liquid towards their attackers while avoiding any physical damage. Now a team of researchers at MIT, the University of Arizona, and Brookhaven Laboratory have solved the conundrum. (Learn more: http://bit.ly/1GJygo0)

Using high-speed synchrotron X-ray imaging the researchers were able to "see" the inside of the abdomens of living bombardier beetles during explosions.

Why is Modern Art so Bad?

a lecture in English

For two millennia, great artists set the standard for beauty. Now those standards are gone. Modern art is a competition between the ugly and the twisted; the most shocking wins. What happened? How did the beautiful come to be reviled and bad taste come to be celebrated? Renowned artist Robert Florczak explains the history and the mystery behind this change and how it can be stopped and even reversed.
