You Can Never Do Wrong, Doing Right

ON Martin Luther King Day, it is worth meeting a close friend of his, Robert J. Brown. Brown is the great-grandson of a slave. Raised by his grandmother in High Point, North Carolina, she used to tell him, “Bobby, do the right thing because you can never do wrong, doing right. You can’t go wrong.” And that has proven true for him over and over again. Although he grew up in poverty, his grandmother—he called her Mama—taught him about stewardship early on. Once when he was young, he asked her, “w...

The Hasselblad 45P

Hasselblad has come out with "my kind of lens" for its medium format X (again with the X!) camera system. Described as the smallest and lightest medium-format lens, the upcoming 45P is meant to be the system's "pancake." It's an 11-ounce, 9-element ƒ/4 lens that's only two inches long. The full-frame angle-of-view equivalent is about 36mm. The lens has a leaf shutter and has been designed specifically to be quiet in operation. Doesn't that look like a sweeeeeeet package? Mmm-mmm. Hasselblad's l...

Instagram Drops IGTV Button Because Nobody Was Using It

During a fireside chat yesterday, at Digital Life Design (DLD), Spiegel responded to an audience member question about his opin...

Sunrise, 7:30.

The actual sunrise time was 7:24. You may ask, did it really look like that? The answer is no, it was more unusual with a very striking, brilliant vertical and horizontal light — a distinct cross. The camera did not capture that. But the camera (the iPhone camera) did detect colors that I could not see. I've turned down the light a bit to keep the sun from washing things out, but I left the color saturation where it was.I had not done a sunrise run since January 15th. I wanted to go out each d...

Fable Studio founder Edward Saatchi on designing virtual beings

In films, TV shows and books — and even in video games where characters are designed to respond to user behavior — we don’t perceive characters as beings with whom we can establish two-way relationships. But that’s poised to change, at least in some use cases. Interactive characters — fictional, virtual personas capable of personalized interactions — are defining new territory in entertainment. In my guide to the concept of “virtual beings,” I outlined two categories of these characters: virtua...

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel made a bold call that TikTok could become bigger than Instagram because it focuses on talent and not likes

Snap CEO Evan Spiegel told the DLD conference in Germany on Sunday that short-form video app TikTok has an edge over Instagram because its content is driven by "talent" rather than a quest for social status. Consequently he said the app could grow faster and become bigger than Instagram, which dominates social media apps along with Facebook. Instagram has been trying to move away from its reputation of being a shallow, status-oriented platform, enforcing changes like removing public like coun...
