Each week on Friday I rescue my favorite tweets before they scroll off into oblivion. This week’s bunch are full of whimsy, beauty, and stunning philosophy. (I’m not going to tell you which one(s) are which. ) Enjoy!
@JavaCupcake “Facebook is down. Worker productivity rises. U.S. climbs out of recession.”
@2morrowknight 11 Hilarious Products That No One Could Possibly Need (Even Rich People)
[SEO: A night vision camcorder for kids? Yikes.]
@pourmecoffee “The recession officially ended in June, 2009 — around the same time your job did.”
@BlondeTXGoddess Amazingly Powerful and Beautiful Nature Photography Series – Water Inspiration
[SEO: Gorgeous water scenes, in just about every type imaginable.]
@Gemma_Stone “Even when you hide your gifts the world aches to experience them. We’re waiting.”
@SarahEOlson2009 Shayla, Empress of Everything, disdains the papparazzi.
@JaneFriedman A beautiful thought/proposal: empathy as the killer app (RSA video)
[SEO: It’s difficult to convey what this is about in a few sentences. On a dry erase board that stretches at least 10 feet, the artist/philosopher speaks while illustrating a history of empathy in civilization, and how if, as it seems, humanity is hard-wired for aggression and violence, it may also be soft-wired (and ultimately saved) by empathy. Incredible video.]
@thisisMEssy “I can’t do everything. nor do I need to. And damn… it feels great NOT to be trying to do 1,000,000,000 things simultaneously and perfectly.”
