Joshua Bell is one of the world's greatest violinists. His instrument of choice is a multimillion-dollar Stradivarius. If he played it for spare change, incognito, outside a bustling Metro stop in Washington, would anyone notice?

I love this story about Joshua Bell. Amazing (if somewhat sad). I posted it on my "violins" topic too, if you are interested.

You topic about inspiration is just great. Congratz.

Sad, yet intriguing comment on our rushed urban commuter society vs. the true pleasures of life. Context is so important. Wonder what Marshall McLuhan would have said...

I watched this video a couple of years back and was so amazed I immediately googled for Joshua Bell - turned out he was playing Manchester only 150miles away a couple of months after! So I treated myself to tickets, and he is even more incredibly talented to watch in person. Just astounding to think people could absent-mindedly just stroll past that kind of talent. Makes you think! :)

New Reactor Paves the Way for Efficiently Producing Fuel from Sunlight | Ideas, inspiration and creativity | Scoop.it
Early days, but a cracking idea. Chemically breaking down water or CO2 into hydrogen (H2) and carbon monoxide using a full spectrum solar "furnace". H2 can be used as a liquid hydrocarbon fuel (eg petrol or diesel). Pretty amazing stuff.

Amber Case: We are all cyborgs now | Video on TED.com | Ideas, inspiration and creativity | Scoop.it
TED Talks Technology is evolving us, says Amber Case, as we become a screen-staring, button-clicking new version of homo sapiens. We now rely on "external brains" (cell phones and computers) to communicate, remember, even live out secondary lives. But will these machines ultimately connect or conquer us? Case offers surprising insight into our cyborg selves.
