With just a microphone, Chip shows us his incredibly diverse range of sounds as an award-winning beatboxer.
Chip Han is a 22 year old beatboxer, born and raised in South Korea. He currently resides in Virginia, and has been living in the states for six years. He taught himself by studying videos online; his passion and dedication for the art has helped him to develop his already extraordinary skills. His string of achievements started with being the winner of Kollaboration DC 2010, the first Asian American talent competition in the DC, MD, and VA tri-state area. His accomplishments have not ceased since— he has won numerous competitions including Montgomery County’s Got Talent and is a highly sought performer at venues and festivals all over the east coast. Although he is a local celebrity, he continues to humbly perform on street corners and always strives to improve his beatboxing game. His abilities continue to evolve everyday and he hopes to continue being the walking, talking, and breathing human instrument that he has worked so hard to become today.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Google has acquired Titan Aerospace, the drone startup that makes high-flying robots which was previously scoped by Facebook as a potential acquisition target (as first reported by TechCrunch), the WSJ reports. The details of the purchase weren’t disclosed, but the deal comes after Facebook disclosed its own purchase of a Titan Aerospace competitor in U.K.-based Ascenta for its globe-spanning Internet plans.

All I have to say: “it’s epic” - if you haven’t seen this already you must given this video has been watched more then 8 Million times
Evidence Facebook’s revenue is based on fake likes.
My first vid on the problem with Facebook: http://bit.ly/1dXudqY
I know first-hand that Facebook’s advertising model is deeply flawed. When I paid to promote my page I gained 80,000 followers in developing countries who didn’t care about Veritasium (but I wasn’t aware of this at the time). They drove my reach and engagement numbers down, basically rendering the page useless. I am not the only one who has experienced this. Rory Cellan-Jones had the same luck with Virtual Bagel: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-…
The US Department of State spent $630,000 to acquire 2 million page likes and then realized only 2% were engaged. http://wapo.st/1glcyZo
I thought I would demonstrate that the same thing is still happening now by creating Virtual Cat (http://www.facebook.com/MyVirtualCat). I was surprised to discover something worse - false likes are coming from everywhere, including Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia. So even those carefully targeting their campaigns are likely being duped into spending real money on fake followers. Then when they try to reach their followers they have to pay again.
And it’s possible to be a victim of fake likes without even advertising. Pages that end up on Facebook’s “International Suggested Pages” are also easy targets for click-farms seeking to diversify their likes. http://tnw.co/NsflrC
Thanks to Henry, Grey, and Nessy for feedback on earlier drafts of this video.
This has to be my fave MEME I’ve ever created, what a privilege to be working for http://aimementoring.com and looking after their digital + social media.
Happy Saturday everyone
