Zombies, robots and beetles, oh my!
There are zombies everywhere. They share the bus with you in the morning. They serve you coffee. They write parking tickets. They teach your kids. They file papers. They attend meetings. Lots of them. Lots and lots and lots of meetings. They want you to be like them. They’ll make it hard for you to not be like them. Resist. Refuse. Reject!
There was a time when robots were just science fiction. When we were kids, we’d laugh at the old sci-fi movies where actors dressed up in tin costumes. And then, one day, I saw a robot on TV. This time, it was real. My uncle said that I’d have to save one hundred loonies to buy it. I was determined to have it.
Did you know that water beetles can see above and below the water at the same time???
What do all of these things have in common? Find out on Tuesday, March 29th.
Julie Laurin is the owner of Silly Robot, a quirkly little web development and publicity company in Ottawa, Ontario. She also runs Ottawafilm.ca and will be launching Her Voice, a community for women in the arts, sometime in 2011. She’s hoping that by sharing her thoughts on business, learning and creativity, she’ll inspire women to explore new avenues for growth, ideas and success.
