Fun Friday: Senior citizens go online

A recent viral video has been causing a bit of commotion around the Internet for its simplicity: Two senior citizens are trying to figure out how to use their new laptop’s webcam. Little do they know, they’ve already figured it out!

I personally like this video for two reasons:

1) It shows people interacting with technology!


2) It shows that even though people of “advanced age” might have some trouble with new technology, they still know how to have some fun!


Fun Friday: All the news that’s fit to fake

Sometimes a news story is so outlandish, it’s hard to believe it’s true. Other times, a faked news story can be so on point, it’s almost hard to believe it’s not true. When it comes to these faked news spots, The Onion does it best.

Here, watch how Disney engineers its stars … from scratch.


The answer to the pressing question: What would happen if the Internet crashed?

Fun Friday: Sticky notes

I’m a fan of sticky notes — physical and virtual. I’ve had my share of to-do lists and notes-to-self stuck to walls, in books, along the edge of the computer monitor. So I can relate to these sticky-related videos.

The first one is a little long, but keeps your attention. Years in the artists’ life are animated via the traditional yellow sticky.


This stop-motion video was created for a contest sponsored by 3M, makers of Post-It.


And this stop-motion video shows what your sticky notes do when you’re on deadline.
