The Corporation

Not necessarily a tech related post, but for all of you who haven’t seen The Corporation yet – I assure you that it is a must. Please do yourself a favor and rent or netflix it! Just a little warning, you may not be able to drink standard store-bought milk afterwards, but see for yourself.

Talking about eye-openers, I was also surprised to see “Project Engergy” -a new series- on WCCO 4 news at 10PM. I believe the video feeds are available online as well. My collaborators from IPS will be featured on Thursday from what I hear.

WCCO 4 News is airing a groundbreaking broadcast series starting today, Monday, April 10 at 10:00 p.m.
WCCO anchor Don Shelby will explore how America’s limitless thirst for energy threatens our national security, our environment, and our children’s future in a five-part series called Project Energy. Shelby and his colleagues tackle the problems and the consequences of the country’s current energy crisis—and also present solutions.

A foreign film recommendation

Der Krieger und die Kaiserin is a fantastic contemporary German movie, directed by Tom Tykwer (Lola rennt), featuring the talented Franka Potente, as well as a great performance by Benno Fürmann. Both of them can also be seen in the bone-chilling thriller Anatomie. If you like this kind of recommendation, please let me know. I like foreign films and I’d be happy to post links to whatever I watched and liked.
