Sunday Beauty #48 + Gaming Can Make a Better World

Today’s pretty picture is an interesting one.. from a technical standpoint at the very least, as it was done with the help of a computer.

Panorama from multiple images in the ski resort on the Tschengla Bürserberg. The mist covered the whole Walgau and pulls up in the Große Walsertal.

  1. Beautiful photo,.. the annotations great. Also the snow…reminding me that during this heat wave… there will be cooler days.

    …and Gaming Can Make The World Better…a great Promo for the inventors! While I can say I want to stay in the “real world” rather than the “virtual “world”…the truth is that many dimensions of that real world is in the GAME… of which will convince many people to go for the game.
    Scary stuff for the world as we have known it…but at least this vid. makes us aware of what is out there in our real world.

    I wonder what others think of this vid?

    Thanks for all this Paul

    • And thank you, Gaia.

      I did learn some things from this TED Talks episode, and I share your curiosity in what others may have to say about it.

      Personally, I find intelligent optimists a most fascinating creature to witness.. (exuberant intelligent optimists a rarity). As I am more a “pragmatic stoic”, I rarely agree with their conclusions/theories – as is the case here.
