A Breathing Earth: Watch the World's Seasonal "Heartbeat" from Outer Space

A Breathing Earth: Watch the World's Seasonal "Heartbeat" from Outer Space | Writing twirls | Scoop.it

Each year we experience our normal seasons of hot and cold. Winter brings snow to many of us, and in summer, often blazing hot temperatures and beach days.

John Nelson has given us a new vision of this familiar cycle in the form of a simple GIF… but the result is mesmerizing for its profound demonstration of these cycles upon our lives and the world processes it clearly illustrates.

Nelson used cloudless imagery from the NASA Visible Earth team. He took their flat graphics showing each month of the year and wrapped them around a spherical globe. Then he added some effects like coloration, atmospheric haze, and month information.

What we see as a result, is the Earth’s seasonal heartbeat on display as never before. The northern hemisphere’s massive snowpack as it rolls into winter and the vegetation of the world drying and greening as the seasons pass.

Saving Storytelling in the age of the Smartphone

“I am going to be a little boring,” Sherry Turkle announces as we sit down to tea in the living room of her sprawling Boston townhouse.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 5, 2014 1:27 PM

This article makes me both sad and more committed to storytelling than ever before. The author, Meg Garber, is talking with and about Sherry Turkle, the writer of the book Alone Together: Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other, and working on her next book Reclaiming Conversation.


The article is about how we are so focused on the screens in front of us that we are sacrificing actually talking with each other. Where does storytelling go, along with its benefits of building empathy, relationship, context, meaning, wisdom, imagination, inspiration, passion, purpose, creativity, etc.)? Down the tubes, I'm afraid.


This phenomenon is prevalent in the US today. This is a consequence of technology that I don't think is such a great outcome. The article is a fascinating discussion of what is happening today and well worth the read.


So my resolve to engage in more storytelling through face-to-face conversations just ramped up today. Because this also provides significant business benefits.


How about you?

There is nothing more enjoyerable then a good rabbit with friends, or talking to a new person finding out about THEM, not telling them how great we are. Nature gave us two ears and one mouth!
