TED Conference

The TED Conference (Technology Entertainment Design) is a yearly geniusfest held in Monterey, California. This year’s gathering hosted some of our favorites: Al Gore, Cameron Sinclair, and Majora Carter. With this year’s conference they’ve taken the event one step closer to open source knowledge sharing by making their TEDTalks publicly available. Watch some of these talks on their site or get them on your iPod and geek out on the bus. Some highlights will include the aforementioned stars, plus: epidemiologist and head of Larry Brillaint; Wikipedeia founder Jimmy Wales, founder of the One Laptop Per Child organization Nicholas Negroponte, and biologist Richard Dawkins. The TED site suggests watching at least three from the get go. I concur. :: TEDTalks

Catherine David

Auckland-based designer Catherine David's shower curtains are just one item that are making a splash in the world of designer houseware. A winner of New Zealand's Home and Entertaining Design awards in 2005, these high-quality soap and mold resistant nylon curtains are an artistic canvas for an assortment of David's designs. And yes, you can get your choice of colors. I'm also into the side table, which features an image of a man trying to get out of the box. Catherine Davis Designs also manufacturers some intriguing lamps. Many have their designs printed on the reverse side, so that the image isn't visible until the lamp is illuminated—making a very pleasing surprise. There's a variety of styles and different types of items, all of which are available on the site's online store .

UK graffiti virtuoso Banksy has smuggled 500 doctored versions of Paris Hilton's new CD into stores across the country. The CD contain Banksy's remixes and have titles like "Why am I Famous?," "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?" His spokeswoman said he had tampered with the CDs in branches of HMV and Virgin as well as independent record stores. He visited cities including Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and London, she added. A spokesman for HMV said the chain had recovered seven CDs from two Brighton shops but was unaware that other locations were affected... A spokesman for Virgin Megastores said staff were searching for affected CDs but it was proving hard to find them all. "I have to take my hat off - it's a very good stunt," he added.

Incredible art installation

' Head On ' by Cai Guo-Qiang at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. The installation consists of 99 life-sized wolves, fabricated from painted sheepskins and stuffed with hay and metal wires, barreling in a continous stream towards - and into - a glass wall. Only the first ones crash into it, but the pack chases after the leader.
