Don’t fall for the hype – debunking the myths of entrepreneurship today [VIDEO]

Dr. Timothy Folta explains how we can redefine the term "entrepreneurship" to overcome those hurdles and attract the best and brightest individuals to become entrepreneurs and ensure a brighter future for all of us.

OK Go gives new meaning to giving a Chevy a tune-up [VIDEO]

In hindsight, this was a match in some mad, musical heaven: those wacky, inventive rockers OK Go and the over-the-top oeuvre of Super Bowl commercials. Partnering with Chevrolet, they pilot a specially outfitted Sonic through the California desert to bang out a version of their song "Needing/Wanting."

Heavy-metal sensation, 8-year-old Juliet of Queensland, rocks our socks off

Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead is 66 years old. James Hetfield of Metallica is 48. Never too old for rock 'n' roll, right? Or, apparently, too young. Welcome to the heavy-metal pantheon, Juliet Childs -- a product of Queensland, all of 8 years old, and a bonafide music sensation.

Will your work ever match your ambitions? Yes. But it could take a long...

So you're stumped. Up against the wall. That brilliant achievement -- that beautiful, iridescent idea -- is stuck somewhere in your head and you can't pry it out. In this video, one of most creative journalists around finds an amazing way to express the rewards you can earn from sticking to your convictions and logging some hard work.

A bunch of accountants drop the spreadsheets and pick up the beat, flash-mob style

You've seen better flash mobs than this. We've seen better. But here's what makes this video, done for a corporate end-of-the-year meeting, so awe-inspiring: These are accountants. Accountants. Wow. They can do our books anytime.

An awesome method for solving office disputes: Invoke your inner Pikachu

An unfortunately high percentage of us have been in this position -- a dustup with an office colleague, often triggered by one person touching another person's refrigerated food inappropriately. But how best to mediate these disagreements? Do the words "Pokemon trainer" ring a bell? Psy-attack!

In a rut? Here’s a challenge: Try something new for 30 days.

How about this for a goal: Try something -- anything -- for 30 days. It turns out that's the perfect time-frame for giving anything a shot, says Google SEO expert Matt Cutts in this clip from a TED conference. He took a picture a day, rode a bicycle to work, cut sugar out of his diet and wrote a novel. Not all at once, mind you.

Do Australians suck at making sales? Take this guy’s advice and make ’em laugh

The prevailing wisdom is that Australians are rather pathetic with art of making a sale. If so, we should see if Mr. Kenny Brooks is available for a seminar or two. He might not be the world's greatest salesman, but he's certainly the funniest.

Remember when watching a movie at home required (gasp) going to a video store?

When's the last time you stepped inside a video rental store? When's the last time you saw a video rental store? The Onion presents a lovely tribute to a begone era when we would file into our local video outlet, hoping against hope that not all the copies of "Men in Black" or "Mario Kart" were checked out.

Samsung tries to beat iPhone snobbery at its own game

Depending on which side of the Apple vs. PC / iPhone vs. Android rivalry you're on, this video will either delight or dismay. The folks at Samsung decided to promote their latest flagship phone, the Galaxy S II, by happily skewering Apple fandom. Can Samsung beat Apple at its own game?

Justin Beiber could soon have more Twitter followers than Australia has people

We've thrown a whole bunch of these whipsaw "did you know?" presentations at you over the years. And we'll continue to do so. Because they're fun. And, like this little video about the social media explosion, they give you tasty stuff to chew on. For example, did you that Justin Beiber, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears have more Twitters followers combined than Australia has people?

Hawt guys touch themselves to remind women to check for breast cancer

Recent studies, we're told, show many young women aren't checking for breast cancer. We're also told women are 88% more likely to watch a video if it features a smokin' hawt guy. This video addresses the first observation by employing the second. Rethinkbreastcancer.com, a health-advocacy site and the source of these two observations, put them together to create a visual presentation that's straightforward, informative and hilarious.

Big, bad beetles cower before us in Anthill, the iPhone game app

We won't lie to ya -- it's a rough world outside the friendly confines of Anthill Central. Fortunately, we have hard-nosed brethren among the Formicidae ready to stand up to the nasties and blaze a pheromone path we all can follow. Many of them appear in an iPhone/iPad game called Anthill -- Tactical Trail Defense.

What do these high-flying daredevils and entrepreneurs have in common?

Since so much of entrepreneurship is built on calculated risk -- doing it without an net, as it were -- we believe you'll get a kick out of this video. Or maybe your acrophobia will kick in, requiring a frosty beverage or stiff drink. Win-win either way, we think.

As nurses’ industrial action deepens, consider a world without them

With many of the nation's hospitals crippled by an industrial action by the Australian Nursing Federation, we thought it timely to bring forth this video, by nurse-training provider Ausmed, dubbed "A World Without Nurses." So, watch the video and then tell us: Who's side are you on?

A kinder, gentler Bill Gates dishes on taxes, charity and… Steve Jobs?

Microsoft founder Bill Gates, long removed from his days as soulless overlord of the company that ruled our PCs, warms up for his appearance at the G-20 with this interview, in which he talks about taxing the rich, helping Third World nations and... Steve Jobs.

Is Eric the Circle viral brilliance or the greatest time-waster ever?

Its promoters call Eric the Circle "the next generation of tweeting." And maybe it will be someday. For now, we can say with confidence that this website and iPhone app, with which you draw and share simple cartoons, can be a colossal devourer of time. And we say that with a smile.

The man behind (inside?) Elmo confirms the fun of chasing your dreams

We've spoken lately -- and controversially -- about entrepreneurship as art. Creating something out of nothing and making it beautiful -- that's the prime directive. Not accumulating money. We were reminded of business-as-art when we saw this trailer for a documentary about the man behind (inside?) "Sesame Street" superstar Elmo.

Evading fares on Melbourne transport is a deadly game in this movie ‘trailer’

Sneaking onto a Melbourne-area train isn't just illegal -- it can get you killed. At least that's the tragi-comedy reality in "Endzone," a faux movie trailer created by a group of young filmmakers. It might be worth it to evade a ticket in the real world, but not in this one.
