TED: Edward Snowden: Here’s how we take back the Internet

An interesting and thought provoking interview by TED with Ed, via webcam..

Worth a watch and listen to some of the points raised and a cameo by the father of the internet.. Smile

TED: Edward Snowden: Here’s how we take back the Internet

 

Although TED sucks cause it gives in to corporate pressures to NOT screen some speeches about GMO, recently a good example, when TED caved into Monsanto, they still occasionally have something worth watching.

… or is it ? Smile with tongue out

you decide.

 

On the other hand…

Hobbiton–LOTR and The Hobbit–Village

dragon_2013_06_22_IMG_7663

 

The 22nd of June 2103 was an odd day for me, woke up, it’ was the 22nd, I had lunch, my lunch table number was 22, and the price of lunch was $22.00 and at 44, I’m exactly 22 years younger than a 22 yrold ? LOL needless to say, I bought a Lottery ticket.

 

Anyhoo… I was bored and went on an Adventure… and some how ended up at Hobbiton!! A place I swore I’d never go.. I mean, ok not a LOTR fan.. but I liked the movie, least the parts I didn’t fall asleep in.. .. sooo…

Last year, they released The Hobbit, part 1, and the Movie Set was officially opened as an attraction…

It’s in a backwards town called Matamata, and I recommend you all go visit it at least once in your life, just to say you’ve been there, seen that, didn’t get hairy feet, and bought the tee-shirt.

The tour is… EXPENSIVE… NZD$75.00… OUCHIES.. but meh… I had nothing else planned anyways.

It’s run by LoTR Tours (nz), from what I understand, a company shared by the movie company, Peter Jackson and the farm owners in the area.

The tour takes you into the set, a walk around, a peek inside, and the pub.

The tour site is here:  http://www.hobbitontours.com/
