When Death Becomes Optional

When Death Becomes Optional | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

The year is 2032. You have just celebrated your 80th birthday and you have some tough decisions ahead. You can either keep repairing your current body or move into a new one.
The growing of “blank” bodies has become all the rage, and by using your own genetic material, body farmers can even recreate your own face at age 20.
In just 20 years, this is an industry that has moved from the equivalent of Frankenstein’s laboratory to the new celebrity craze, with controversy following it every step of the way.
The combination of a few high profile “accidents” along the way, coupled with those in the religious community who claim that body farmers are playing God, and asking “where does our soul reside?” has given it thousands of top media headlines around the world.
Every person on the planet has a different opinion about this moral dilemma, or whether its safe or dangerous, or whether we should just get better at repairing our existing bodies.
As medical advances continue, and we devise an entirely new range of health-enhancing options, I propose we set a new standard, raising the bar to the highest possible level. I propose we put an end to human death.

How To Create Value, Give Visibility To Others and Make Money By Curating Presentations: The Note&Point Example

How To Create Value, Give Visibility To Others and Make Money By Curating Presentations: The Note&Point Example | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Note and Point is an elegantly curated set of high-quality visual presentations selected and described/commented.

 

The collection is organized in four sections: Keynote, PowerPoint, PDF and SlideRocket.

 

This is a great example of how effective curation can create value, while providing greater visibility to the authors showcased and integrating an elegant and perfectly fitting advertising model (AdFusion) which is both inobtrusive and highly contextual. (I found the ads on Note&Point so interesting that I reloaded their home page multiple times to see them all, and clic the ones I was most interested in.)

 

Great example. Recommended. 9/10

4 Ways to Become a Leader People Want to Follow

4 Ways to Become a Leader People Want to Follow | Passe-partout | Scoop.it

There's no Leadership without Followership!

 

We’ve all had bosses we were proud to follow. People we’d do anything for. Even run through brick walls.

On the other hand, most of us have also had bosses we follow only because, well, they’re the boss. So what separates the leaders we want to follow from the leaders we have to follow?
