Code. Code is what makes all of this possible. From the HTML that is the foundation of this webpage to Objective-C that is the foundation of the OS on my Mac. (Yes. I am a Mac guy) It’s important. And when done right the user should never know what code looks like.
Coding is an important thing for people to learn. Just like those teachers in high school telling you that advance calculus class is super important. Coding is similar. Some people taking those calculus classes will use it later in life but a lot of them won’t. However it will still help them. It will help to expand the way their mind work. Give them a different way to look at problems that aren’t about math.
So regardless if you learn Python, Java, HTML,Lua, BASIC, VB, or C++. Learn a language.
I was a happy and proud owner of a GoPro HD Hero. Then the Hero 2 came out. I was bummed that mine didn’t have the adjustable field of view but over all it was no big deal. Then Go Pro released the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition and completely out did themselves.
Go Pros have always been good cameras but they are the extra camera. The video quality is good but you also have the excuse “well the camera is super small. What do you expect?” You can take that excuse and throw it out the window. The new camera is playing with the big boys now.
First off I have a very interesting fear of heights. Why is it interesting? Well because I am super afraid being 20 feet off the ground but 100 feet doesn’t bother me. I figured out any height I assume I will die from the fear is gone. Any of these heights I just get a huge rush of adrenaline.
Well that was kind of a long introduction just to say I really love videos that push the envelope. That do things that are right on the edge of safety (but that stay on the safe side!). Without further ado I give you the worlds largest rope swing. Enjoy!
P.S. Please don’t try this at home. Your hill in your back yard isn’t tall enough. And if you do don’t sue me. I didn’t make the movie… Probably don’t sue him either though. He makes cool videos (remember the parasailing video? No? Go there now then! oh and subscribe to my blog!)
I find that I spend a ridiculous amount of time on the internet. I have woken up with my iPhone in my hand and me surfing the web on Safari. How I got there I still don’t know. All this hitchhiking on the super highway we have come to call the web has gotten me lost more than once. I mean why not waste hours on end seeing what double digit millions can buy you on the beaches of SoCal? Every once and a while it does lead me something great.
Enter Casey Neistat. A man who was able to do what has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, travel the world. Best part? Nike paid him to do this.
