Thank you for highlighting this video, it really touch me. I did lots of motorcycle riding during college years and had a small group of friends too. Although I can't say we had great noble dreams, we did share the same thought of greatness on our futures.  I can only hope that I get my chance to regroup and do another ride like the one depicted in this short film!   Thanks for the refresh of great memories!

There's another video I once saw on YouTube that I cannot find. It starts with a busker in New Orleans playing a guitar and singing some song (I think it was "Stand by me" but I'm not sure). Then the folks recording him took that tape around the world and filmed/recorded other folks singing and playing along. I would really like to see this again, so if you have a link to it please share it here or email me (max@CliveMaxfield.com).

Leonard Nimoy, We'll Miss you

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
