Have a look at this slide show from Google Creative Labs - The World is Full of Interesting Things
Be patient - it takes a minute or two to load - it's full of video, music, etc. and be patient, it will take you a bit of time to watch/listen/read/play with it all
Click on the link to open the slide show in full screen - it's much much much more interesting than the tiny sample below.
