Did you know?

Give this video a try and you’ll get a funky song and a few awing facts.

Authors: Karl Fisch, Scott McLeod – Music: “Right here, right now” by Fatboy Slim

Did You Know? originally started out as a PowerPoint presentation for a faculty meeting in August 2006 at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado, United States. The presentation “went viral” on the Web in February 2007 and, as of June 2007, had been seen by at least 5 million online viewers. Today the old and new versions of the online presentation have been seen by at least 20 million people, not including the countless others who have seen it at conferences, workshops, training institutes, and other venues.
