I’ve been watching these and Vi Hart’s other videos on YouTube and I am pretty amazed at the amount of information packed into <5 minutes of doodles in a notebook. I like the way she instantly grabs your attention by tuning out of her ‘math lesson’ like most people would — to ponder and explore, and then blow your mind with meta math ideas inspired by her doodles.
This got me thinking of things that got me thinking of what I’d like to do more of this year. In 2011 I did a series on rediscovered obsessions which was a lot of fun so I’ll try that again. But first I need a good topic and your input! If you have any suggestions for specific topics I can create a series from let me know in a comment in the next week. They will work best if the topics inspire me to use photos or video in my responses.
Some examples are: Favorite things to do in your hometown?
What or who else on YouTube inspires you and why?
What DIY projects will the average Joe/Jane will be able to do in 10 years that they can’t easily do now?
Hope you enjoyed my new hot cocoa mix photos I shared last week. They were delicious.
