TED Thursday: The Electric Rise And Fall Of Nikola Tesla

July 11, 2013

Yesterday would have been Nikola Tesla’s 157th birthday. He’s one of the world’s greatest visionaries and inventors. This infographic really shows how much he achieved: Why Nikola Tesla Was The Greatest Geek Who Ever Lived

He has over 700patents and either invented or helped invent the following:

Alternating Current
The Light Bulb
Radio
Radar
Hydroelectric Dams
Cryogenic Engineering
The Transistor
Radio Astronomy
The Resonant Frequency of the Earth
An Earthquake Machine (yes, you read that right)
Ball Lightening
Remote Control
Neon Lighting
The Modern Electric Motor
Wireless Communications
Wireless Power

And he was celibate, which is a bit weird.

Here’s a great TED talk on him:

TED Thursday: Underwater Astonishment

July 4, 2013

This is a great TED talk. I really love the bio-luminescent creatures in the deep and the camouflaging octopus. In a place we thought was dead there may be as much bio diversity as in the rainforests.

Inspiration: Chamonix Adventure Festival

July 2, 2013

I am a sucker for adventure film montages and when those montages are as good as this one then that’s all the better. If you’re near Chamonix in July then this should be in your schedule.

Inspiration: Kilian Jornet

June 28, 2013

Kilian Jornet is an ultra marathon runner. A really good ultra marathon runner. He’s run and won almost every race he’s entered. He’s smashed records for runs all round the world, he ran the 165mile Lake Tahoe Rim Trail in 38hours and 32 minutes beating the previous record by seven and a half hours! That’s hours not minutes. He also holds records for crossing Corsica, climbing Kilimanjaro and Mt Blanc. He’s an ultra running phenom.

But instead of continuing his ridiculous domination of ultras he’s started a new project called Summits of My Life. If you need some inspiration to get outside and run then this is it.

Watch this in full screen and in HD. It’s pretty special.
