Amazon's Oasis

Like so many of the streaming services today, Amazon has become a production house to provide engaging content for its subscribers.

One of the things that Amazon does differently than the others is test the waters with limited runs of a show or just create a pilot to gauge interest and see where things go from there.

Oasis is currently just a single pilot episode designed to generate interest for the show and, if a full-scale production run looks as promising as this pilot, I'm in. Not only does the pilot introduce us to a rogue's gallery of interesting characters but it somehow manages to make us care about them in very short order.

As I mentioned earlier, Amazon releases shows like to this to test if there's an audience willing to watch. When you're done, you can write a review on their site or (in some cases) even fill out a short survey about what you saw to more formally gather data.

Out of 12,000 viewers/reviewers on Amazon, 85% of them rate it five stars. I, personally, would like to see if we can't bump that number even higher. If you haven't already, do yourself a favor and watch Amazon's Oasis. If you enjoyed it as much as I did, please share your comments below.

A Little About A Lot

A Little About A Lot by Nabih Saliba
To know a lot about a little Or a little about a lot Is a thing we should consider But in practice often not
Know a lot about a little And it’s one thing that you’ve got But your view might be quite narrow Like a cage for every thought
Fill your head with many subjects Then an expert you are not As your knowledge can be shallow When a little about a lot
Should you aim to be an expert? Try to master just one thing? Then you’d have yourself a focused Special kind of offering.
Do you wish to only sample? Try to gather wide but thin? Then when details are required You’ll just offer up a grin.
Maybe what one should consider Isn’t what they know or not But what they know together With the friends that they have got
For together we are smarter Sharing fact and view and thought On a lot about a little Or a little about a lot

Flying and other important skills

The thing you need to know about flying is that it takes less effort than you might think. Just like swimming, most of the work is done by the stuff all around you. In a pool, that stuff is the water that holds you up if you want it to. When you're flying, the stuff you float in is air. Danny had just discovered this secret to flying not more than five minutes ago. At first, he tried to fly by flapping his arms as fast as he could. If you think the sight of a seven year old boy flapping his arms up and down is funny, you're not alone. All of the people who noticed Danny would stop and watch for a moment, giggle and then walk off to wherever they needed to be. It wasn't going very well. Tired and feeling very silly, Danny was about to give up when he heard a quiet voice say, "Don't fight the air. Maybe you should make friends with it instead?"

Danny spun around to find the owner of the voice but there was no one standing there. "Make friends with the air?…
