Hello 2014

“Today, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” ? Brad Paisley

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

This year I have two main goals:

1) Become a better writer. I will continue to improve on this at Live in Limbo.

2) Do a lot more talking. I will accomplish this on a new podcast called Capsule. Check it out.

3) Photograph more. I silently migrated my entire portfolio over to a Smugmug Pro account.

I hope you all choose a few things that you want to improve upon for the new year. All the best.

Merry Christmas

Edward Snowden is the infamous NSA surveillance leakers, hero to many and criminal to everyone else. I support him. Today he delivers a Christmas message to the world from Russia where is in asylum.

A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy.

Absolutely chilling. And true.

But on a brighter note. Let’s try to do our best to focus on things that matter. This is an article on Apple, but the quote below can be applied to anyone feeling overwhelmed and out of focus.

Qui-Gon Jinn: Don’t center on your anxieties, Obi-Wan. Keep your concentration here and now, where it belongs.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: But Master Yoda says I should be mindful of the future.

Qui-Gon Jinn: But not at the expense of the moment. Be mindful of the living Force, young Padawan.

– Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

Again, Merry Christmas!

Misunderstood

Ads like this are what make Apple Inc. different and unique from the rest of the technology companies out there. Not once are specs ever mentioned. It’s all about the emotion and what the end results are. If an Apple product seem to be weaker than a competitors device just based on the spec sheet, perhaps it is. But it is a long and tested statistic that the Apple product will function way better. It’s the marriage of liberal arts and technology that they strive for. And where they make all it just disappear into the background with the user even really noticing it is where the magic comes from.
