Friday Night Music: “Lets Dance” Danny Michel, Ed Robertson, Sarah Harmer, Luke Doucet…

I love this: wonderful cover, great musicians, loads of fun.

If you wish you could go out tonight and can’t, watching this could be the next best thing.

P.S. Thanks to Blake E. for this!

The significance of cloud computing, as explained by the great Stephen Fry (@stephenfry)

This is a really well done┬ávideo on the importance of cloud computing. It’s 5 minutes long, and well worth it.

Obviously, I would argue that your best bet for Cloud Computing services is from the company I work for, but otherwise I highly recommend this.

Eyes on the Prize: the complete documentary, on YouTube

As mentioned on Kottke, it appears that the entire documentary Eyes On The Prize is now on YouTube. You can find it here: Eyes On The Prize – YouTube.

For those of you unfamiliar with this documentary, it was, to quote Wikipedia, “… an American television series and 14-hour documentary about the Civil Rights Movement in the United States….”. That’s an understatement. It’s a great production about a great event in world history.

Highly recommended.

Bill Gates Last Day at Microsoft

When you are Bill Gates, you can get some PRETTY powerful people to show up in a spoof video of you. The video is funny, but the underlying message is: hey, I am Bill Gates, and look who I can get to show up.

Watch and see:

How to pick locks

I stumbled across this demo of how to pick a master lock #175. There are alot of these videos! If your lock is in one of them, you should get rid of it.

That said, it is impressive to see some of these videos. It’s hackers for hardware.

YouTube and Music: Pavorotti and James Brown

I really enjoy Pavorotti and James Brown’s singing. While not everyone will like the idea of singing together, I do, and if you do too, check this out:
