Summer Post #6: Perception in Film

What happens if you take a seemingly inocuous film and REMIX IT (which involves careful cutting, music choice, video effects, etc.)  into a horror film trailer?

We saw something similiar in JORDAN’S COLOR PROJECT.

Here you go – Mrs. Doubtfire (1993) remixed as Horror

Knowledge Issue: the TED “inequality” Controversy

The creators and adminstrators of our beloved TED were recently accused of censoring a short talk due to its “political partisanship”.

Here’s what @TEDchris (Chris Anderson, the founder of TED) had to say on his blog:

“The National Journal alleged we had censored a talk because we considered the issue of inequality “too hot to handle.” The story ignited a firestorm of outrage on Reddit, Huffington Post and elsewhere. We were accused of being cowards. We were in the pay of our corporate partners. We were the despicable puppets of the Republican party.”

Hmmmm…

Well he decided to tell the whole story: CLICK HERE FOR HIS BLOG POST
