The Language of Our New World – Coding

coders and rock stars

With our lives seemingly run for the most part by technology, and specifically electronic and computer-based technology, it’s not a bad idea for as many people as possible to even know the most rudimentary code.

In the following short video, silicon surfing coders from Facebook co-founder, Mark Zuckerberg, to The Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am, express their experiences and encouragements for us to get into the field of coding and computer science to keep up with the technological direction that our world is driving towards.

March Against Monsanto Around The World

Yesterday, May 25 was quite a revolutionary day for the world as millions (perhaps billions) across the globe showed their vehement disapproval of Monsanto’s agenda. The Still Mind hosted a live feed of the march in New York City, where it was said that roughly 2,400 people showed up to march at Union Square. The entire globe has joined together on this, which is truly a wonderful site to see, and it almost brings a tear to my eye.

Below are photos of the marches from around the world that took place. Images via Occupy Wall St.
