The Matrix(off topic)

Have you seen the movie Matrix? What do you think about it? A great film? Well, let me tell something to you. It has a message. I am sure you thought about what the "Matrix" is. I'll give you a hint(tipp). The Matrix is an existing thing, but not in the way ypu can see it in the film. The Matrix in real world is about consumption and shopping to manipulate people. It's focused on scaring you to be a brainwashed "animal" to just work, consume, and sleep. In the video below, you will see an exploit of people fighting against the Matrix.

City and Food

TED - ideas worth sharing - City and Food

Food is a shared necessity - but also a shared way of thinking, argues Carolyn Steel. Looking at food networks offers an unusual and illuminating way to explore how cities evolved.

The question of how to feed cities may be one of the biggest contemporary questions, yet it's never asked: we take for granted that if we walk into a store or a restaurant, food will be there, magically coming from somewhere. Yet, think of it this way: just in London, every single day, 30 million meals must be provided. Without a reliable food supply, even the most modern city would collapse quickly. And most people today eat food of whose provenance they are unaware.

More about Carolyn Steel.

Watch this video on youtube:
The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future.
The music is the 'The Scientist' from Coldplay.
I loved it and I think the animaton and the music are so cool.
