‘The Eight Irresistible Principles of Fun’ is a quick but pretty presentation of what ‘fun’ means to us, and how to feel more of it. The very colorful, visual style and animated ‘slides’ give some nice pointers on how to bring more fun into your life (and ideas!). Made by Bungay Stanier.
Where would we be without the Guitarifle, the MowerCycle or Wateringsneakers? We’d probably be right here, because Steven M. Johnson’s inventions are so ‘sneakily outrageous’ they are unlikely to see the marketplace anytime soon. Or in Johnsons own words: “I have decided an idea has no practical worth and would never be likely to be adopted seriously (like most of my ideas), but I like it anyway.” This does not make his book ‘What the world needs now‘ any less entertaining or inspiring even – reminding us how to think outside that ‘box’ again.
