Our debut on Tim Burrowes’ Mumbo Report

I had the pleasure of participating in Burrowes' latest product extension, the Mumbo Report, when in Sydney last Friday. It was in many ways flattering to be interviewed from the same seat recently occupied by media doyen Harold Mitchell and SMH editor Peter Fray. However, I'm still undecided about whether I should have had that third espresso before stepping before the camera. (I'll let you be the judge.)

Sammartino and Liubinskas discuss startup momentum

A couple of weeks ago Pollenizer's Mick Liubinskas put in a video call to Rentoid's Steve Sammartino to pick his brain about the concept of startup momentum. Fortunately, Mick recorded it for the benefit of us all. Watch Steve discuss his views on the important role iteration plays in emerging businesses.

Carl Sagan lives… in a duet with Stephen Hawking?

This funny (and strangely catchy) mashup of television footage from Carl Sagan's Cosmos and Stephen Hawking's Universe series (with the aid of some masterfully applied Auto-Tune singing technology) was created as a musical tribute to honour the two great men of science. It also begs the question, 'Why can't science be cool?' (Or so uncool that it becomes cool... like Sagan's skivvy.)

The Monthly Schwag (The segment formerly known as Cool for Comment)

At Anthill, we often find ourselves at the receiving end of unsolicited marketing gifts, from keyrings to… well… Beatles CDs. Last month, we decided to film our reactions and opinions about some of the best (and worst), and called it, ‘cool for comment’. The response was so positive (James got ambushed in a pub by a guy called Steve and Lachy's Auntie Jean thought it was 'swell') that we've decided to do it again, under the new and improved, more apt segment heading, 'the monthly schwag.'

Google Wave explained in two minutes

For all the buzz about Google Wave, not many people can explain it well in a couple of minutes (even the overview by Google developers Lars Rasmussen and Stephanie Hannon took over 1h 20m!). What hope do we poor sods without an early beta invite have? Help at last. This brilliant, slick, two-minute video from EpipheoStudios.com explains Googles new communications platform/concept for the layperson.

New amphibious WaterCar will make your life awesome

At last, an amphibious car designed for The Dude. Californian-based WaterCar, Inc. builds high-performance cars that are also high performance boats. Now going for a cruise really means going for a cruise. Put the top down, turn the tunes up and head for the big blue. As this promotional video reveals, there are bound to be bikini-clad grads on Spring Break, hanging around waiting to cheer you - and your WaterCar Python - on.

Magician cons real people into accepting blank paper as money

Derren Brown is a popular English magician (among other things) and host of the popular UK television series, Mind Control. In this clip, he achieves the seemingly impossible, conning people into accepting blank paper as money. Who do you think would be more likely to fall for his ruse? A street-corner hotdog vendor or an upmarket diamond merchant?

Designer mum launches Crowdfunding model to rid the world of plastic bottles

Gretha Oost has adopted an unusual approach to raise capital. The Melbourne mum, designer and Pitch Club contestant has decided to trial a 'crowdfunding' approach to launch her award winning product 321 Water.

Words don’t do this mobile technology justice. Just watch.

Imagine that you are walking down the street with your mobile phone in hand and you'd like to know what is going on in your neck of the woods. You can now hold up your phone and, using your mobile phone's camera, see "tags" overlaid onto whatever you’re looking at. For example, you might observe a "Two for one coffer offer - Joe's Coffee." Or "Art Gallery Opening Today."

Ali G pitches Ice Cream Gloves to The Donald, VCs

Sacha Baron Cohen might be making more waves these days with his other alter egos, Borat and Brüno, but his original breakout character, Ali G (ayyyeee), was where it all began. In this clip, Ali G gets his entrepreneur on, pitching his idea for "Ice Cream Gloves" to a less-than-wooed Donald Trump and a series of bemused US VCs.

How to get hired in sales – just ask Abott & Costello

Sometimes, all it takes to move ahead in life is being able to back up your fresh perspective with unique logic. Anyone can crank a widget, but how many people can prove that 7 x 13 = 28?
