The OneTooThree #3: Thankyou Changing Stuff + The Internet Is Doomed + Australia Is Friendly But Just Not With Celebrity's Dogs

The OneTooThree is a curation of what's happening across the world in culture, music, tech and design. It's about stuff that inspires the team at OneToo and features three highlights from the past week. 


Thankyou

1. Thank You: You Have The Power To Change Stuff

I've had to this amazing book for a couple of months now, yet I've only just had the time to actually get into it. Needless to say, it is as expected. Full of encouragement. Dan and the team share their amazing journey, most people wouldn't have the courage and the perseverance that they've shared. The key premise of the book, is that of a question, 'what if it does work'? Often we can give up too easily, or say it's too hard. But Dan challenges us to challenge the status quo, in fact he says to whack it in the face with a chair. No doubt Thankyou are changing. What world-changing ideas have been given to you, that you're just letting sit there?

If you haven't already got yourself a copy, go pick it up. Oh and did I mention, there's no RRP and all proceeds go to funding their next ventures. Grab it here.

2. The Average Webpage Is Now The Same Size As The Original Doom

For those who remember Doom, you'll note it was a somewhat significant game for its time. Yet research is in that suggests the average webpage is now the equivalent size of the game. It's incredible just how much things have changed in a relatively short amount of time. While this isn't necessarily an issue, it does show that we were able to get around using less data. In fact, data providers are one of the biggest winners here. The more data we use, simply because, the more money the providers get.

3. Protect Australia From Johnny Depp's Dogs. We Definitely Look Unfriendly. 

If you've been following the story of Depp's dogs, you'll know that they were recently forced to make a public apology video. If you have no idea what we're talking about, you're probably lucky. The issue arose when Depp bought his two dogs into the country without declaring them or going through the necessary quarantine regulations. It quickly turned into an international scandal and every man and his dog, including Barnaby Joyce, were weighing in. The video from above is cut from the original, adding a comical spin to the whole thing. Needless to say, Australia has never looked less friendly than now. At least we can still laugh at ourselves though.
