You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

peterdiamandis:

Today, the only constant is change…

And the rate of change is increasing.

You either disrupt yourself, or someone else will. For any company, sitting still equals death.

I believe that we are now experiencing only a tiny fraction of the rate of disruptive change we will see over the next 10…

Because isn’t that the point of every relationship: to be known by someone else, to be understood? He gets me. She gets me. Isn’t that the simple magic phrase?

Just finished reading The Shadow of the Wind. Wow, what an incredibly gorgeous read. It’s so beautifully written; I’m yearning for the streets of post-war Barcelona. The plot and the phenomenally fleshed out characters had me hooked right until the satisfying conclusion.

Now I’m left nostalgically stuck in that post-novel daze - that weird twilight zone that exists between the world of the book and reality.

If Facebook is the blue-collar everyman network, Tumblr is more of a luxury destination. Niche yes, but lucrative for retailers. The high-end crowd is one of its top draws as a marketing platform. The median household income of Tumblr’s users is $80,075, ahead of Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.

Light Printing

We are exploring new modalities of creative photography through robotics and long-exposure photography. Using a robotic arm, a light source is carried through precise movements in front of a camera. Photographic compositions are recorded as images of volumetric light. Robotic light “painting” can also be inverted: the camera is moved via the arm to create an image “painted” with environmental light. Finally, adding real-time sensor input to the moving arm and programming it to explore the physical space around objects can reveal immaterial fields like radio waves, magnetic fields, and heat flows.
