Dave Gray, co-author of "Gamestorming," the 2010 book about collaboration for innovators, says the cubicle layout of your average business office is great for efficiency, but the worst possible design for creativity.

Take your standard fitness centre treadmill. Add water. Lots and lots of water. In unimaginative hands, the result would be a sloshy, slippery mess that only a bucket and mop could cure. But in the hands of the folk at HydroCo, based at Seaford in Victoria, wetness plus walking-in-place equals the Physio 1611, a compact aquatic centre that can go where an Olympic-size pool couldn't hope to fit.
A 17-year-old who stresses that he’s growing up on a rural farm in West Virginia away from anything resembling a tech hub, Barrat taught himself how to code and build AI programs using entirely open-source software.

I remember the first time I watched Sesame Street. I was eight. We had just installed our first television. I'll point out that I grew...
How would the story of the Nativity play out if Joseph, Mary and the Three Wise Men had access to email, smartphones, online social media and Internet shopping? A Portuguese web-development company put together a cheeky video Christmas card that offers a early 21st century version of the birth of Jesus.
Even as multitouch screens have become de rigueur for our phone and tablet experience, researchers are pushing hard on dependable, hands-free ways to make our toys work.

Hold onto your sanity folks, because Rickrolling's leading internet meme mantle could soon be usurped. Its evolution has taken the form of an equally annoying practice called Shredding.
I will admit I am not partial to the selfie. In fact, I hate having my photograph taken. I think I have taken maybe three...
It's a common moment in the life of every entrepreneur. After holding down a job or, various jobs, you have a moment of realisation that...
This morning, I sat down with my 9-month old son, Julian, to feed him breakfast. This is one of the jobs allocated to me as a first-time, new father. Remembering the arduous steps required to complete yesterday morning's meal (and the day before that), and contemplating how bizarre it is that I must work so hard to provide him something that will make him stronger and healthier and happier, I began to think about online marketing. Yes, the brain works in mysterious ways. (And I am kind of sleep deprived.)
Clearly, there is some sort of contest going on here that I've not been privy to. Cramming groups of like-minded people into a mode of transport seems to be what all the kids are into.
As Kraft's iSnack 2.0 debacle illustrates, companies don't have much room for error these days when it comes to launching a new product. That is especially true if that company's name is Microsoft and that product is Windows 7, the latest iteration of the company's flagship product and the follow-up to the much maligned Windows Vista.
Mick and other bloggers weren't impressed with this "spammy" contact, and made that clear. So Publicis Mojo had another crack, sending him a package. Mick deceided to capture his impressions of this second marketing effort by videoing the grand opening in the form of a review.

Who even knew sign flipping was possible? Is it some new extreme sport that all the kids are into and I'm just so far behind?
Admit it. You've been rickrolled, and chances are, you liked it. But, it may have been a while since it happened. Here's a guide to one simple way to reinvigorate an internet meme, and probably kick off a whole new spate of rickrolling.
By boiling the kettle to make a cup of coffee, you are changing the universe. How? Pauli's Exclusion Principle means that a change in energy levels in one part of universe, means the rest of the universe must adapt and move to accommodate the change. Energy levels aren't just for the drumming circles in Byron Bay. And yes, this has a lot to do with entrepreneurship.
