The following NuDisco mix by Australia’s DCUP is responsible for keeping my work flow on track right now. Give it a try, results may vary.
Which one are you?
Inspired by the residual effects of fashion week, I’ve put together a survival kit list of words and terms to use if you’re an outsider desperately trying to assimilate with the “in crowd”.
Anonymous has released this video that starts off with a compilation of all major world events that challenged human’s strength in numbers. It then finishes with this speech that starts at 3.35. It is very moving and I think everybody should watch it to remind themselves of the strength of democracy.
I tried looking for a scalable picture where you can see exactly how big this thing is but I guess all you have to do is get a magnifying glass and try to located the iPod Touch that’s chilling on the top of this monstrous audio gadget called the BEHRINGER iNuke Boom.
It’s 8-feet wide, 4-feet tall, 400 pounds and costs $30,000. To think, it’s just an iPod dock, but its not just any iPod dock, this Ben Hur of a thing pumps out 10,000 Watts of face melting audio apocalypse.
After looking at this thing and its specs, apart from noticing the sheer ridiculousness of the product, there would actually be some pretty impressive uses for what costs the same as a family sized car. What we are dealing with her is a product specifically designed for the 1%. The rest of us 99 per-centers can go on about how stupid impractical the size is, or we can check out this list of 5 creative uses, coz lets face it, no one person should have all this power, and it sure as hell wasn’t designed to be played on low volume.
DIY Block Party (may piss your neighbors off)
This can apply to weddings; birthday parties or any event that requires big sound. You won’t ever need to hire a crappy DJ who never has the songs you request. You can set your playlist in iTunes and just keep the party going all night long. No need for expensive sound equipment hire, all you have to do is plug it in and you have yourself a music festival in the comfort of your own suburb.

I have just come across Screenr, an instant screencast program that is web based. All you have to do is hit record, it will capture everything on your screen as well as your voice. You then share the link. Boom!
I really dig this because it allows you to send visual instructions to anyone on the fly. Of course, you can do this with Skype, but what if you can’t organise a time to Skype? You can just quickly record your instructions with Screenr, email them the link and carry on with your day. To me, its a productivity tool I will use with my clients and contractors.
A lot of the people I deal with are in various parts of the world in time zones that a lot would find near to impossible to collaborate. We do use some team project management tools to keep the work flow smooth, and Screenr is definitely a part of my arsenal now. Check out the video below, hope you guys see the productivity potential with this one.
Here at YouLookWell I have been posting articles about all things that pertain to Health and Beauty. One thing that I am pretty sure many of us would have seen, is how everybody gets dragged into people’s personal lives on Facebook and Twitter. It’s bad enough we have to hear about their crappy bus ride home but I think it’s highly inappropriate when people start posting updates about their personal relationships, especially when it doesn’t promote any wellbeing.
Now that Social Networks are unfortunately just as important as our real life lives, exercising your social health online is just as important as cleaning up your online reputation. We are the first generation that has been given this extraordinary gift of technology but with it, comes a huge responsibility.

Never have I thought in my whole life that I would find reading a compilation of essays to be enjoyable. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am a Masters graduate myself and I do find the odd essay to be thought provoking but that’s only because I had no choice. But in Scott Berkun’s latest book titled, MindFire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds, I was compelled to read essay after essay after essay, lol.
There are 30 essays in total along with his most prominent postings from the last decade, delivered in the one convenient book. Now I would just like to point out that I didn’t totally agree with everything he argues but the fact that it made me get off my seat and spend the next few weeks thinking about the validity of what he had wrote means that his book, was aptly titled.
How many books do you know out there, actually serve the purpose of its title? Mind fire… that’s exactly what happened to my mind. The book was split up in sections of 3 parts. Gasoline, Sparks and Fire. And yes, after reading all of his great ideas my mind was a blazed and I honestly was ready to either punch someone in the face or start another fruitless Internet venture.
First of all, in Gasoline he addresses the following: The cult of busy; wants vs. beliefs; how to be a free thinker; how to detect bullshit; should you be popular or good?; there are two kinds of people – complexifiers and simplifiers; are you indifferent?; does transparency matter?; how I found my passion; how to be passionate. I don’t have to tell you how inspiring this section was as many of you have been any more than three of these situations. Even if we have successfully found our passions, there’s the perpetual task of swimming through the crap that goes along with anything you decide to pursue in life.

When I was in my early 20s, I was lucky enough to land a job that allowed me to see the world. I travelled and partied hard at every destination possible and I would still make it to my returning flights on time. These days, it is not the case. I just don’t/can’t find the energy and besides… my wife would kill me. I still travel for work and find myself at nights sitting in the hotel room feeling sorry for myself because I just don’t have the vigor that I once had. Until I smacked myself with a little perspective and realized that I get to stay at hotels for free… and get paid for it! I am sure there are many of you out there who are on the same boat. Well I have compiled a comprehensive list of things you can do to make time fly and it doesn’t involve porn or hookers.
Remember, this is designed for men (and women) who are married and/or just don’t have the energy anymore to go out and hit the town. If we had energy we could simply answer this question with one answer: Chuck a party in the hotel room.
1. Ride the luggage cart.
2. Don’t get caught riding the luggage cart.
