I loved this article, as it is fun working with creative people. My mind doesn't always work like that, and I'm fascinated by how some see and think about things. Thanks for the great article!

Fantastic piece on how Steve Jobs operated meetings effectively and how you can use the same tactics to keep creativity high and groupthink low in meetings and project groups.

Giving this site a try. You tell it types of clothes you like, your size (pants and shirt) and then they send you one item of clothing month that you can return if you don't like it. Seems like a no-brainer for me to try. Emily was hoping there was a women's version, but alas there isn't (yet). #clothing #clothingcompanies #500strong #500startups

+Lawrence Lui Ya, I tend to be the same, but they ask for all your measurements and I feel very confident that the size will be a fit. The example shirt they sent me also looks really nice, so I'm fairly confident they'll pick some nice (and unique) stuff for me.

I'm trying it out because I tend to either (a) not buy new stuff because I don't know what to buy, or (b) buy stuff that all looks the same because I don't have great fashion sense. This service could address both of those issues for me which would be ideal.

The worst that could happen is that you order it, don't like it, return it and get your money back. Practically painless, as I see it.

It's good because it highlights the fact that it's not all fun and games (i.e. you will likely be a key sales & customer service contact, if not the only contact, and this is not a whole lot fun). This makes you think genuinely about your idea: do you believe in your product or service enough where you could passionately pitch it yourself?

Thanks for sharing.

Great, quick read. TL;dr Ask yourself these two questions:
1) What is the the one thing that if I stopped doing right now, would have the greatest positive impact on my life?
2) What is the one thing that if I started doing right now, would have the great positive impact on my life?

Photography experts and/or fanatics,

Here are two questions that are really racking my brain and for which I would love some suggestions, input and/or links to products:

1) "Is there a device that allows you to sync photos from a digital camera to an iOS device via Bluetooth or wifi?"

2) "Is there a digital camera that syncs photos to your phone, tablet and/or computer via Bluetooth or wifi?"

Feel free to answer in the comments of this post or directly on Quora, whichever you prefer. Also, please +mention folks you think may be interested and/or have input. Cheers! #photography #digitalphotography #technology

It's cool to see the community answering for us. Makes my job easier :-)
+Jeffrey Young -- the battery drain totally depends on several factors: If you have Eye-Fi Direct enabled, and you have it set, to, say, 2 minutes, if it's not connecting to an existing Wi-Fi SSID, it'll spawn the Wi-Fi hotspot (secured via WPA2) for 2 minutes. That, over and over again -- will have an impact on your battery.

But if you let Eye-Fi Direct only spawn the network for 30 seconds, most Android phones/tablets and iOS devices will not scan the air often enough, to connect. So you need to consider the options, and compromise.

With photography -- it's ALWAYS about compromise. Take it from a pro. You need to decide what is OK to compromise on, and what is not. You may need to carry an extra battery.

Typically, the card only draws 10% more of the card slot, when it's uploading, and the card slot is minimal, compared to the overall camera power draw.

+Jared Irons - we're trying to improve the out of box experience. I agree that it needs work. It's all about continuous improvement. You may think that it's the easiest OOBE, and others may not. Depends on factors such as Wi-Fi security, firewalls, OS's, etc... We try to optimize for the mass consumer, since our stuff sells at Wal-Mart and Target, but can't always get it right...

+Luke Bornheimer -- you'll be happy to know that we use Google's servers to do our geolocation lookups :-)
