I reckon it's one of these well-intended ideas, but Buffer's Pablo service (https://buffer.com/pablo) seems to me like a remnant sale of photos and quotes alike.

Decades ago Hans Magnus Enzensberger called TV the 'null medium', a medium of irrelevances. Obviously it has got a worthy successor.

We always wonder what we're looking at when staring into the unknown. And suddenly... Third attempt at deep dreaming using Google's inceptionism tool. Sequence of 100 jpegs. Dogs, eyes, noses... I will have to train my very own neural network. #deepdream

Second attempt at deep dreaming with Google's inceptionism tool. Own photo, default net. Sequence of 100 jpegs. I especially like these chimeras at the beginning. A bit creepy at the end. #deepdream

Markus Brunetti's portraits of churches are unique: together with his Partner, Betty Schöner, he's traveling through Europe for ten years and taking photos of churches. No normal photos, of course: he takes hundreds to thousands of photos of each facade and stitches them together during a week-long process. The result of hard work and stupendous determination are breathtaking portraits of these churches, depicted in a clean and crisp way never seen before.
