A Truly Special Father's Day. It's not only Father's Day, but also my son, John's, 5th birthday. http://www.thekmiecs.com/john/a-truly-special-fathers-day/ - we started the morning off right.

Life Magazine's iconic photo of the VJ Day celebration in Time Square has a familiar community backdrop...The Walgreens Times Square store. Discovered this while pulling some content from the archives for a presentation. Pretty cool.

This is what I love about natural light and shooting wide open. This may in fact be the best photo of Cora I've ever taken. For those interested, this was shot with my Nikon D700 and Nikon 35mm 1.4 at 1.4.

Driving on 2 wheels, is just a very different way to see the world.
We did something a little bit different for Memorial Day weekend this year. We didn't stay home. Although on Monday, we were back in Chicago and we smoked some 7 lbs of meat. We didn't hit the beach. Although many of our friends did. We didn't fly out of town. Although we looked into and it's

Tremendous, rich and robust article on Quartz that gives a window into Apple's roadmap, a year before Steve Jobs' untimely passing.

http://qz.com/196005/the-steve-jobs-email-that-outlined-apples-strategy-a-year-before-his-death/

This passage really stuck out to me "ship iPad 2 with amazing hardware and software before our competitors even catch up with our current model" - I often say Speed Wins. If you set the pace, you control the race. That's a famous riff on a Steve Prefontaine quote. It's very true in just about everything we do, across all business verticals and business maturity states.
In 2010, a year before his death, Steve Jobs outlined Apple's strategy in an email to the company's 100 most senior employees. He heralded the "Post PC era," vowed "Holy War with Google," promised to "further lock customers into our ecosystem," and warned that Apple was "in danger of hanging on to old paradigm too long." The email...

We are a habitual people. We love routine and clear parameters. Most organizations have some type of model or playbook they use for hiring. These models ensure they are hiring people who will drive the organization to success. The models are based on years of historical company performance. For

"Moving fast enables us to build more things and learn faster. However, as most companies grow, they slow down too much because they’re more afraid of making mistakes than they are of losing opportunities by moving too slowly. We have a saying: “Move fast and break things.” The idea is that if you never break anything, you’re probably not moving fast enough."
Speed. Real speed. Without it today, you're dead in the water. Consumers are not stagnant. They advance, morph and change faster than ever before. Technology advances at the blink of an eye. Everything is happening faster. You can have the best strategy, the best team, the best product, but timing,
