Want to add a bit of spice with unexpected side-effects to your event? We can arrange for a live talk of a set of Curious Corners. It's kind of a like a rollercoaster, you sit down, take a ride and experience a thrill afterwards!

Of course the content of the talk is entirely up to the internet itself... However, we can guarantee our enthousiam and a hightened interest in all sorts of unrelated things!

Below you will find a short selection ranging from micro-biology, to epic poems and technological feats. Including rare discoveries and undiscoverd arts...

  • NASA is all over the web, but old sovjet images are hard to find.
  • Algorithms are merciless. (Maybe inadvertently so?)

  • Candies to pretty to eat.
  • Why people in old photos never look happy.
  • Termite mounds that are visible from space.
  • Painted satellite dishes.
