this (thursday) evening, the ONE campaign is premiering their movie “vodoo and vaccines in benin, africa” via facebook. the movie can be viewed at 20:00 (CET) through this facebook app (corresponding fb event).

the movie is about current medical practices in benin that bring together traditional healers and modern doctors to give children access to life-saving vaccines.

the interesting part is that they decided to do this via facebook instead of just launching a website at a certain time, or a video on youtube/vimeo. i wonder who’s consulting them.

this beauty is an electric motorcycle made by ralf kittmann. presented at the goodgoods fair in hamburg last weekend, seen on utopia.de’s reporting from the fair. wish i would’ve made it, i even had tickets already. oh well, new weekend, new luck: this saturday, malzwiese will be exhibiting eco-products in berlin!

really fascinating social media campaign: the museum of me visualizes your facebook life into a virtual exhibition. providing access to your facebook data has never been so aesthetically pleasing.

the other day i mentioned biomimicry and how important i believe it to be. perhaps one of the most famous proponents of this is gunter pauli, who i had the chance to hear talk at this year’s (wonderfully organized) vision summit. pauli is the mastermind behind ZERI and the blue economy– a visionary entrepreneur and author with a fascinating mind. in this video he visits günter faltin’s laboratory for entrepreneurship and talks about biomimicry (sorry, it’s in german):

not only is pauli a huge fan of learning from nature, he’s also strongly believes that a massive wave of entrepreneurship will lead us towards the future. to push this movement forward, pauli shares his extensive knowledge of exciting and disruptive innovations, and presents 100 business models that just need driven individuals to implement them:

what i like most about pauli is his impatience with solutions that ‘do no harm’ and his insistence on solutions that have highly positive impacts. this kind of broader (re-)thinking highly resonates with me. and it reminds me that i’ll have to write a post on cradle-to-cradle soon.
