Connectivity

This Thanksgiving many people will travel all over the world to spend time with family, friends and loved ones.

I recently came across this video by Aaron Koblin. It is a visual representation of flight data from the Federal Aviation Administration. It is also an exceptional metaphor for how humans connect, particularly through the internet.

At a minimum it is three minutes of interesting imagery set to music.

Happy Thanksgiving.

(PS - I have decided to host a competition of sorts... I will release the details soon. In the interim I suggest you put your creative thinking hat on. )



"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects."
-Herman Melville

It's all energy > us, our thoughts we create in our minds and the outcome of them. We ARE all connected, we are all one god, one mass and what we will spread we will receive, because it is a constant give and take...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Interesting you share this. I've never seen as many flight data details shown as last Wednesday.

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
