People are awesome  OCT 27 2010

A bunch of people doing amazing things on bikes, on skates, on skis, in wheelchairs, on skateboards, throwing balls, kicking balls, hitting balls, flipping over, and sliding around.

Maybe you've figured this out much quicker than I have, but I realized recently that one of the "topics" I cover here on kottke.org is "people are awesome" and "look at all the amazing things we can do that we've never done before". And it's not just videos like the one above where people perform physical feats of obvious novelty and amazement. It's also kids from the projects making the cover of Fortune magazine, scientists building a tiny sun in California, inventing 3-D printers for human tissue, making wonderfully creative design and objects, drilling through entire mountain ranges with massive drills, quietly but completely changing how people think about space and time, writing books that inspire people to be more awesome, landing on the Moon, and so on and so on. (via devour, which is also awesome)
