The Man Who Invented the Moon from John Cabrera on Vimeo.
I came across John Cabrera on twitter.. I have been very interested in web series and web movies recently I guess I am trying to find something original and creative to watch.. I don't know, may be I would like to think out side what its advertised and pay attention to the real artist.. and I think he is someone that would be interesting to follow his projects..
so that's my selection from the web to watch this week.. enjoy.. see the rest of his work on his Vimeo channel..

I just started to get addicted to web series and that was because of Felicia Day who is one of the people that I follow on Twitter on her twitter account since "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" I posted a trailer a while ago here on my blog. It turned out that she also had written and stared in this web series called "The Guild" posted on YouTube..
She just posted an interview with Jimmy Fallon Late Night Show which is premiering in a month and who I am also a fan of since his days on The Saturday Night Show with Tina Fay (he also has a Twitter account)..
here it is the interview:
The Guild Sesson 2 is playing on The Guild Website Now!.. watch it you wont regret it especially if you are into web games you will relate to it and if you want something original to watch.

I love these photos on:
"Obama's People" in The New York Magazine with the nice commentary check it out.
I also liked this interactive page they had set with all the inaugural addresses of all the 43 presidents before Obama under:

Inaugural Words: 1789 to the Present
A look at the language of presidential inaugural addresses. The most-used words in each address appear in the interactive chart below, sized by number of uses. Words highlighted in yellow were used significantly more in this inaugural address than average.
I am trying to find links to watch the inauguration on the web in my clinic in between patients till this time I found these links:
http://www.nytimes.com/ which has a link to a live video to start 11:30 am EST

I always believed in the power of all these web tools that we now have in our position ( YouTube, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace) I had friends when I started blogging 2 years ago giving sarcastic comments as if getting your opinion out and sharing your interest might be insignificant.. but in the long run I have learned a lot from blogging, YouTubing, twittering...all the different social media and web tools... in these areas I got to see the intellectual and the silly but fun. I learned to express myself in many ways..
This YouTube post is an example of how much you can utilizing these web tools to be beneficial.. to help.. to involve..
I always and always talked about this or keep mentioning it that I don’t think we utilize these tools more often in KSA for more of an educated purposes or communicating tools for instance like in my own profession as a way of health education and direct question and answers between the doctor and patient as a reference tool.. trying to implement it in my practice has been difficult but I also have a problem with trying to communicate in Arabic in writing which is some thing I have been working on.. I think these tools should be utilized more to the point that it should be routine .. because its just there at our face all we have to do is reach out and grab it like they are doing here.
