The secret of being miserable is to have leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not. The cure for it is occupation, because occupation means pre-occupation; and the pre-occupied person is neither happy nor unhappy, but simply alive and active. That is why it is necessary to happiness that one should be tired.
— George Bernard Shaw (via observando)

50 years of ski fashion at Corvatsch
Do you remember? The first stirrup pants by Bogner at the end of the fifties? The tight ski pants of the seventies, fitting like a second skin? Or the bright coloured ski overall? Ski fashion history was made high up on the slopes of Corvatsch for more than 50 years. A tribute to nylon, spandex and Bogner.The history of ski fashion begins in the thirties with an anorak by Maria Bogner for the athletic woman on skis. Feminine, fun and convenient it is the complete opposite of the usual ski clothing made of loden. Bogner’s legendary stirrup ski pants made of modern material become the trademark of the company in the early fifties and are worn by stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor. In America, the term “Bogners” becomes a synonym for stirrup ski pants and even made it into the dictionary. Maria Bogner presents the stunning outfits often against the impressive backdrop of the Corvatsch. Corvatsch maintains the connection to the company and the family Bogner to this day.

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education?

This new table built by Dr. John Moravec details the evolving way we’re all learning, trying out technology, and growing as a community. Essentially, we’ll reach a new state of web skills when we reinvent technology tools to better enhance our personal learning. We’ll be at 3.0 when schools are everywhere and not viewed as daycare.
Do you agree with the descriptions in this table? What is being left out of the web 3.0 discussion right now? How long will it take to reach this new level of supposed understanding? Will we ever actually make it?
