"In 2007 NBPC's New Media Institute brought emerging producers down to the Delta, Jackson Mississippi and set them loose on the Blues Traill to produce content using small format technology, locative media, camera phones and much more. Here a team of producers, including writer Charlie Braxton, explore a very special relationship between hip hop sensation Nas and his blues roots father Olu Dara." -- NBPC

"Syreeta McFadden tells Tell Me More's Celeste Headlee that certain cameras and photographers who are unfamiliar with different shades of skin often distort the images and color of black and brown people. Though technology has improved and allowed her to capture the many hues of brown skin, she says photography still has a long way to go." -- +NPR

I often wondered whether the iPhone 5 had a racial bias since the first day I bought it. This interview confirms my assertion that this 'smart' phone lacks an ability to take true-to-life photos due to lag in technology. This problem illuminates the imperative nature for Silicon Valley to embrace inclusion & diversity in the development environment. A collision of diverse perspectives makes for better products.
