Unbound: The Crowdfunding Cargo Cult – Telegraph Blogs: Cargo cult thinking in technology products might have worked in the past, when customers really didn’t know any better and you could overwhelm them with slick marketing campaigns, but things are different now, thanks to online reviews and word-of-mouth.

Marvelous Destroyers: The Fungus-Farming Beetles | Wired Science | Wired.com: Witness the spread of so-called bark and ambrosia beetles, a collection of 7000 species whose expansion beyond their native ranges threatens trees around the world.It's not the beetles' fault, of course.

It's one of the animal kingdom's greatest and most unappreciated symbioses.

All The Beatles’ albums in sixty one minutes: Steve McLaughlin’s “Run For Your Life” takes all of the Beatles’ officially released UK albums and compresses them into 61 minutes by speeding them up 800%. The result is trippy, maddening and at times quite beautiful. Of course, it would be impossible to do anything to the Beatles music without slivers of beauty jutting out here and there.
McLaughlin’s Beatles methy mix has been wedded to video excerpts from Bollywood and Lollywood films in addition to fragments of documentaries, experimental films, fractals and animation.

In this mind-bending talk from TEDGlobal he shows how it works and how similar laws hold for organisms and corporations.
