I learn a lot from creatives who share how they snap everything exactly right.
Taking great photos is not about having a nice expensive camera. I am a firm believer that good photography comes from smart photographers who think creatively and know how to make the most of their smartphones. Here are few tips: Clean your lens - it seems obvious but it is very easy to forget. Your Smartphone holds all the fingerprints, dusk, sand etc. so form a habit of wiping it before each use. You should use soft lens cloth but a cotton t-s...

From what I've seen of the different ways of Scoping, you definitely need to be an iOS user carrying a power block with basic tripod. And if you want an audience, you need to schedule the thing on public calendars.

There are interesting times ahead this summer as Facebook brings mainstream broadsheets into its stable of news feed offerings. At the very least, those newsy items will further dampen brand messaging. At best, Facebook will be the place to lurk and find deep reads about breaking news.

Since his reemergence on Facebook, Robert Scoble has consistently outlined the best way to craft what you see in your Facebook flow. I've adopted some of his tactics.

1. I put my closest connections into lists of "Friends" or "Close Friends" and if I want to read something from anybody else, I make them an "Acquaintance".

2. I mute people by keeping them off these lists or by putting them onto a list I create. They still think we're "friends".

3. I turn off notifications for dozens of the 819 friends I've made on Facebook.

4. I always keep the total number of Facebook "friends" below 1000 even though I've actually connected to eight times that amount since starting my account in 2006.

5. I add a comment to a Facebook thread when I want to keep getting notifications about the topic of the thread.

I wonder if anyone in the FIR Podcast Community might offer a peer review of these tactics.

FIR listeners might have heard research from Eli Pariser that only 7% of the links clicked by Facebook members actually qualify as hard news. https://medium.com/backchannel/facebook-published-a-big-new-study-on-the-filter-bubble-here-s-what-it-says-ef31a292da95

I think Robert Scoble should put a Tricaster on his work desk so all the screen sharing can be effortless and smooth.

I wonder if the FIR Podcast Community has a link to a curated book list, one containing titles that every young communications professional should consider reading.

I think the board and book list is a great idea as I have found it hard to search for books and research papers that can help my studies, it would be great if I could find a list of tags or key words that can help when searching for articles or books related to communication.

If you review web server logs, you might have noticed a trend of increasing visits by the Googlebot for images. The imagebot returns to base with OCR tasks. If your image or one of your brand has overlaid text, that text could easily become synonymous with the image itself as part of the Google lexicon.

One of the most inspirational presentations I've watched in 2015 was presented with a Braille text by +Paul Hopkins, a voice I follow through social audio clips he shares. Paul's slide deck resonates with me as I attempt to ensure creative multimedia students make their practise inclusive by design.
This was my first presentation as one of four keynote speakers at the 2015 ICTEDU conference, 25th April, Limerick Institute of Technology, Thurles, Ireland.

If you like quantifying your Facebook presence, you may need to set aside time to pull your social signals through Wolfram Alpha before Facebook throttles its API usage. I've attached my most common words to this post and it shows how one of my Flickr accounts publishes images automatically. I generated my result via http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=facebook+report

Public Flickr photos from one of my accounts upload automatically. I've changed my handset settings to throttle that.

We visit the Woodland Villas in Parknasilla every three years. That's not frequent enough. Our 6yo wants to return for swimming, kayaking and hulu hoop lessons before the end of the summer.

The Trustev team knows who you are and who is on the other side of the screen (or the counter) better than you can figure out yourself. And added plus: their espresso coffee pods are brilliant.

Our 5yo wanted to adopt a rabbit and our 2yo wanted to take home a goat. They had more fun in Glendeer Pet Farm than they do in Fota Wildlife Park, primarily because of the hands-on time they got with small furry friends.

We have held several office parties in the restaurant downstairs, enjoying excellent service from courteous and efficient staff. Pizza for lunch is a good bargain and during the summer, you might get it served outside on the cobbled area in front of the hotel. The most charming spaces are inside, including comfy leather chairs in the pub area and seats for couples along the wall of the restaurant. I wish we could bring a baby stroller into the restaurant but the stairwell makes it impossible.

We enjoyed the grounds and the spacious surroundings kept the kids occupied while six adults ate and drank in Jack's Bistro. The Innovation Centre downstairs is well-engineered with soundproofing, data connections and creative spaces. Although I enjoyed the service standard and the quality of pasta in the bistro, the rest of my family thought the portions should have been larger. That said, we're going back for a longer walkabout some weekend during the winter.

Our two kids enjoyed their two hours and liked the outdoor garden on the roof the best. Some of the hands-on demonstration areas weren't working so our 5yo missed out as a TV presenter and as a castle maiden on stage. She also wanted to ride in the Audi but couldn't wade in among all the enthusiastic boys with the same idea. It's less expensive to eat in one of the cafes outside than inside the venue so we came a half hour early to do that. I read the comments in the reception book before entering the space and learned about some of the snags that might exist. During our visit, things went well. We'll return for another two hour (exhausting) session and with the cousins next time.
