TV making for +Tom Burke
Making television is a fast-paced, involved, and deeply collaborative process. We spent five months on the set of FX spy drama The Americans learning how it all works.

That was heavenly! It looks like it took some time to figure out the drop in. the first two drop ins looked way too sketchy to pull off. It's a good thing they get beat up from those epic falls.

Going off the back spine of Cerro Teta at Chapelco (SMA, Argentina) felt almost as steep as some of the later drop ins. On a sunny powder day the it feels like 5 minutes of heaven.

Times were different only 50 years ago when most kids had pressure enough to keep busy doing things structured by people other than themselves.

Boys, we are more worried about the boys, aren't we?   They seem more dangerous.   

When you aren't needed and your family gives you great freedom, there are chances you can reach the highest heights of human achievement but there are also chances you will go on your own path, maybe serving no one but your whims.

Robots will bring us more of this.  The wealthier we get, the more we will get of this.

But, the percentages of children that go down such a destructive path are trivial.   The big eye of "breaking news" blows them way up and out of proportion -- and I suspect news of the last event feeds some young men's mind with more advanced evil inspiration.

There was a time when outlandish, radical, crazy activity would be covered up and the news on it would be far less satisfying to our curiosity.  I can't figure out if that was better -- though I'm still hanging with openness.....

This is amazing stuff! If I recall correctly, our friend Eric Loeb did his PhD thesis on similar topics.

Good food, cranky staff. Spent $40 on lunch, then the staff wanted to chase me out for using a computer at the back table.
