your monkey genes

Looks like the Chimp-Human split happened only 5.4 million years ago. So my "genes baby" collage is more recent then i thought!
Nice quoting of Wired's post on this:
"My problem is imagining what it would be like to have a bipedal hominid and a chimpanzee viewing each other as appropriate mates, not to put it too crudely." Dr Lieberman.

e-learning with mp3 players

I'm sure 98% of the songs/stuff on everyone's mp3 player don't worth the bits they use. So here's an advice for ya all.
One great use of my 60GB iPod these days is to learn french on my bike ride everyday to work. The 30min lessons from Pimsleur is the exact timing for my ride, and i can repeat out loud the pardon's, bonjour's, excusez-moi's. Much better than sitting in a classroom repeating, reading and writing all-at-once. You just need one (and difficult) thing: discipline.
Very soon i'll try out some podcasts, like IT Conversations, but thats another post.

pleasure of finding things out

I just saw an excelent BBC documentary from their Horizon series. Its an 49min interview with Richard Feynman about "The pleasure of finding things out".  If you're curious about: education, organizations, nature, chess, religion and quantum physics, you should definitely check it out:
BBC Horizon - Feynman - "The pleasure of finding things out"
(free on google video)

"The thing that doesn't fit is the most interesting" (around 28min)
"How to teach: be confusing, chaotic..." (around 40min)

I personally hope that more and more people continue sharing great documentaries.
If you know some links, send me!

Já que, pelo visto você também usa internet, eis uma dica fundamental para você navegar na web: usar o Firefox (http://www.getfirefox.com). O grande esquema dele é poder instalar algumas extensões para ler RSS, postar no Delicious, baixar videos de sites, tirar screenshots, gerenciar multiplos gmails etc. Veja a minha lista das extensões do firefox.
