The Opera browser has created a very interesting (and disturbing) promotional video they call Escape.

The theme is a science fictional world and focuses on us taking control. As an ad, it's interesting as Opera is only overtly mentioned at the end. However circles - Opera's logo - appear throughout, as an almost subliminal reminder that Opera takes a different approach to Google's Chrome for browsing.

Opera is currently my default browser - I like many of its features, e.g. the inbuilt VPN. I've used the Opera VPN in China - to look at items blocked by the Chinese Firewall (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.). You can also use Chrome plugins so there is little to lose by using it - and a lot to gain (plus some tools e.g. Whatsapp and Messenger browsing are built in).This is "Opera - Escape" by Fort on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

Giving a presentation or telling a story are similar. They both need planning but more than this, they need to motivate so those listening change.

This is how many tell stories - or give presentations. I'll be leading a workshop at the AIIP 2019 conference in Philadelphia on Thursday 11 April.

Research & Critical Thinking in a Post-Fact World. A lecture by Dr Dan Russel of Google on what is truth, what is reality and how do we know what is credible or not.

Some fabulous examples - including fake information from the Library of Congress, and how we aren't teaching critical thinking properly (plus tips on search and more).

Essential viewing - even though it's a 24 minute video. He gives some frightening examples where people accept and assume knowledge that can't be true. If we can't evaluate information properly, how can we tell what is real and what is fake. (One of my favourite examples is of how a US City Council saw the website DHMO.org and believed it so banned DHMO being supplied!)

Unfortunately not all slides clear - but it doesn't matter. It's what Dan Russell says - not his visuals.Research & Critical Thinking in a Post-Fact World Dr. Dan Russell, Uber Tech Lead, Search Quality & User Happiness, Google
