A brilliant tip from Michael. Not many new photographers know this trick.

Sometimes life is a bitch. For example, when everybody around you agrees that the mountains at your location are breathtaking scenic background for the photo they want you to take. However you - the p

I LOVE this TED talk.  Very powerful points that most people do not even realize.  Think about people who are negative and how it makes you feel to talk to them.  When was the last time you sincerely complemented someone?
Have you ever felt like you're talking, but nobody is listening? Here's Julian Treasure to help. In this useful talk, the sound expert demonstrates the how-to's of powerful speaking — from some handy vocal exercises to tips on how to speak with empathy. A talk that might help the world sound more beautiful.

Their videos are awesome
 
OK Go's new video is INSANE, go watch it now it'll melt your brain
No CGI, but lots of optical illusions... LOTS of them and it's insanely creative how they blend them all together. Their music has never really been my thing but these guys REALLY know how to make a video.

Awesome article.
Referrals are an incredibly effective way to build your business and get great clients. Referred clients are often more loyal, consistent, more suited to work with you and they often send more referrals your way. How do I know this? Referrals work – but have a system My partner Nicole and I have gotten 80% …

Great resources for Photographers.
Everyone loves cheat sheets, and photographers are no exception. Squeezed into a set of short tips, schemes, and definitions, a cheat sheet is a quick way to learn something, as well as refresh your knowledge about any particular subject. Moreover, now that infographics are an extremely popular format of delivering information on the Internet, cheat …

For those of you who don't yet have your own email like yourname@yourdomain.com I have a referral link you can use to get set up with Google Mail & Apps. Best deal going and best solution going. I have been using them for multiple companies and organizations for years and they keep getting better and better. If you need help getting things set up just let me know.

Drone photography is one of 2014's biggest trends, but where do you start if you're looking to get some gear? Jeff Foster recommends his must-have gadgets.

Researchers Teach A Robot To Catch Flying Objects
When the robot uprising begins, don’t try to take on our new overlords by throwing assorted household items at them. It won't work!
-+Greg Kumparak

http://goo.gl/phl6jy

It's not just the catching part what's interesting here, it's the way hand learns how to do it.
More and more parts of autonomous human-like robots are getting figured out across the globe. They are getting faster, lighter, and use artificial intelligence to learn the desired behaviour.

I'm creating a simple artificial life simulation for my thesis, and this interests me deeply.

A couple of years ago, I've seen first drones coming to life. They were home/lab built and required extensive knowledge to come by.
Today you can get them online for as low as couple hundred $. They get bigger, are used to carry stuff like cameras, in aerial photography, and companies like Amazon talk about using them as autonomous delivery systems.

We're at the phase where most of the needed technology exists, scattered around the world in different labs, developed by different teams. Collecting all that into one product, providing SDK with "smart stuff" built in, and packaging it into an affordable packet, will take some more time.

Whoever does it first, will start a revolution bigger than the smartphone, and I want in!
