Timeline Of Virtual Worlds (Greenbush Labs)

A colleague just pointed out to me a very interesting product on the Greenbush Labs Blog -- a virtual worlds timeline. What makes this timeline (see below) enormously cool is the way in which multiple media products have been integrated into it. I could imagine uses for this type of product in law enforcement, business and national security; virtually any time sensitive document (Imagine a history book, for example, put together using Dipity's technology...). Even if you are not into virtual worlds, you have to be impressed with this specific example and the possibilities of this technology in general.

How Magicians Control Your Mind ( via AOC)

The always interesting Architectures Of Control blog points to an online Boston globe article on how magicians and cognitive psychologists "are getting at similar questions, but while neuroscientists have been looking at this for a few decades, magicians have been looking at this for centuries, millennia probably." Definitely worth reading. For a little bit of magic (just as an example) check out the video below from The Unpleasant World Of Penn And Teller.
