Up-Inspired Floating House
Yesterday morning, March 5 at dawn, National Geographic Channel and a  team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots  successfully launched a 16’ X 16’ house 18’ tall with 300 8’ colored  weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a  new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.  The entire experimental aircraft was more than 10 stories high, reached  an altitude of over 10,000 feet, and flew for approximately one hour. The filming of the event, from a private airstrip, will be part of a new National Geographic Channel series called How Hard Can it Be?, which will premiere in fall 2011.

Very nice!

Die digitale Revolution ist keine Gefahr, sie ist eine Chance. Wir befinden uns am Übergang der analogen zur digitalen Gesellschaft. Transformationsprozesse haben immer Gewinner und Verlierer. Gewinner sind die, die die neuen Chancen erkennen und sie beherzt ergreifen. Wer sich dagegen an die Modelle der Vergangenheit klammert, wer rechtlichen Bestandsschutz und Besitzstandswahrung über Fortschritt und Innovation stellt, wird verlieren. Mit ihrem anachronistischen Ansatz simulieren sie nur die Lösung des Problems, aber wirklich lösen tun sie es nicht.
