Lainey isn’t looking to impress anyone, especially celebrities. The ETALK Reporter and scribe of the immensely popular celebrity gossip blog, LaineyGossip.com, does what she does for one reason – to provide a gossip education to the Canadian public. The Toronto-born, self-proclaimed gossip maven got into the gossip game in a very roundabout way. What started as an email to two friends grew to a website with active followers from around the world. More than one million people now read LaineyGossip.com every month, making it a leading international celebrity news source. Elaine’s years of experience in the media, celebrity entertainment and blogging space have helped her shape a fascinating TED talk about gossip and it’s critical place within modern pop culture.

This is the reason for the silence on the blog this past week. I went to the conference and festival South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas once again. This year I only went for Interactive though. And not Music and Film, as I did last year.
Yet again it was an explosion of inputs. Wherever you are, there’s cool and interesting people around you. It’s hard to choose which session to go to, because the amount of interesting topics is major. I always try to go to some, that are not the obvious choice for my field – to get another kind of inspiration, than what I usually get. If I only went to the obvious ones, we could all just sit there and agree – and not really feel that we received anything from it.

Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery”: she’s tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don’t judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old.

“Many institutions we take for granted are designed from a basis of mistrust. Skip school too often? Go to jail. Run that red light, even when nobody is around for blocks? Ticket.”

Welcome to the world of Lucius Popidius Secundus, a 17-year old living in Rome in 73 AD. His life is a typical one of arranged marriages, coming-of-age festivals, and communal baths. Take a look at this exquisitely detailed lesson on life of a typical Roman teenager two thousand years ago.

“How do spiders and mushrooms inspire tomorrow’s buildings? In architecture the word design is mainly associated with the design of buildings and objects. In the world of materials design is something internal. The development of production methods on the micro scale has led to far greater control of how we design and construct new materials. This kind of design is invisible to the human eye. In fact materials of the future are already a reality today, and they can help us answer many of the ecological design challenges we are facing.”
In September I went to TEDxCopenhagen 2012. This is Kasper Guldager’s talk from this very inspiring day.
