Listen as Albert Einstein Reads ‘The Common Language of Science’ (1941) Here’s an extraordinary recording of Albert Einstein from the fall of 1941, reading a full-length essay in English: The essay is called “The Common Language of Science.” It was recorded in September of 1941 as a radio address to the British Association for the Advancement of Science. The recording was apparently made in America, as Einstein never returned to Europe after emigrating from Germany in 1933. Einstein begins by sketching a brief outline of the development of language, before exploring the connection between language and thinking. “Is there no thinking without the use of language,” asks Einstein, “namely in concepts and concept-combinations for which words need not necessarily come to mind?

We came up with an idea to build our own 'gift economy'. Click on the red arrow to play a short video explaining how it works.

This kind of concept is also known as pay-it-forward. Wikipedia shows there's quite a bit of history to the idea, yet we seem to be the first to apply it to film distribution.
