The ethics of internet culture: a conversation with Taylor Lorenz

Taylor Lorenz was in high demand this week. As a prolific journalist at The Atlantic and about-to-be member of Harvard’s prestigious Nieman Fellowship for journalism, that’s perhaps not surprising. Nor was this the first time she’s had a bit of a moment: Lorenz has already served as an in-house expert on social media and the internet for several major companies, while having written and edited for publications as diverse as The Daily Beast, The Hill, People, The Daily Mail, and Business Insider,...

Originally published in 1983, Les Amies de Place Blanche (Ladies of the Place Blanche) focuses on the transsexual community living around the Place Blanche district of Paris in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

Flickr says all Creative Commons photos are protected from deletion, not just past uploads

Flickr announced today that all Creative Commons images will remain protected on its site – including those uploaded in the past and those that will be added in the future. The news follows Flickr’s November 2018 announcement where it had stated it wouldn’t delete Creative Commons photos already on its service, after switching over to a new business model which put an end to the free terabyte of storage in favor of a new subscription-based service. There had been concern prior to Flickr’s statem...

This North Hollywood woman beat the odds to walk the runway at London Fashion Week

As far back as Sayda Hartoonian can remember, she has always wanted to be runway fashion model. The North Hollywood woman is getting that chance on Friday when she makes her international debut at London Fashion Week in England. Hartoonian, whose professional name is Sayda Word, isn’t any ordinary fashion model. She doesn’t meet “industry standards” and is quite possibly the shortest model to walk the London runway. First of all, she’s only 5’ 3,” and even though she’s only 25 years old, it coul...

Santas bring holiday cheer on the slopes at Mountain High

It can’t be all work and no play for the big jolly man in the red suit. A number of Santas hit the snowy slopes at Mountain High on Sunday, a fun sight for visitors of the Wrightwood resort. Dozens of snowboarders and skiers decked out in costumes joined the fourth annual Santa Sunday, a way to celebrate the holiday season and also give back to charity. Daniel Murincsak, of Lake Forest, had not been snowboarding in 15 years and it was only his second time ever hitting the slopes. When some co...

YouTube are opening up Stories to loads more creators

YouTube’s Instagram style Stories are being opened up for loads more channels whether creators care for it or not.

Two Truths and a Lie: Instagram!!

In episode 2 of Two Truths and a Lie, we talked about Instagram. Instagram is the most popular platform in many, but not all, markets. EMarketer reported this week that its “rising popularity for influencer campaigns goes hand in hand with the platform’s strong user growth, as marketers tend to go where their customers are,” but in some countries/areas, other platforms are as or more popular. Instagram’s popularity has also lead to some crazy and unsavory behaviors — from people getting killed ...

Finding Your Niche: A Fireside Chat at CreativeLive

Not too long ago I had the opportunity to sit down with a group of CreativeLive students attending a special week of programming in our Seattle studios. This conversation was never intended to be published, but after listening to this intimate conversation with some fellow creators, I had to share it. One of the things I really love about having students in the studio is 1:1 interaction and that non-tangible exchange that happens when a group of people gets together. Let’s face it, the internet ...

The Secret to Success No One Talks About

You’re stuck. You’ve plateaued. You’re making great work but nobody is seeing it and you’re asking yourself “how do I get noticed?” How did the blowout successes of YouTube and Instagram get to their million+ followers? The answer: they created community. Whether you’re an individual, a hustler, an artist, a creator, an entrepreneur, or you represent a company, the fundamental principle is that making something great and promoting it is only 50% of the work, and that the other 50% (the community...

A Split or A Shift?

While speaking at IAC in DC on Sunday, someone asked what to do about rival communities. This depends if you’re dealing with a split or a shift. A split is when two factions emerge and you need two communities to handle them. In Bitcoin’s case, there has been a very literal split. In a split you double down on being relevant to the segmented audience you have. A shift is more worrying. This is when a new trend (or new need) is arising and you’re not covering it well. This opens the door for some...

Love in Action

Love in Action Adopt a healthy and productive way to channel your emotion into action that moves you FORWARD… This post comes to you from our dear friend and yogi, Nina Endrst. Change is a constant – this is a beautiful, painful and consistent truth. Existing in the world today feels, to me, like a rollercoaster of highs and lows. Some days are so sweet and I find myself soaking in the brightest of sunny days, others bring me to my knees – to a darker place with my head in my hands. As a con...

Come Work with Me! I’m Hiring a Digital / Content guru

Hi friends. Yes, it’s true! I’m looking for a high quality, high hustle digital/content guru to join my team supporting my content efforts. Over the last couple years I’ve turned up the heat on my social content to bring value to this community – those already with us and those yet to join our army. I’m looking for someone to focus hardcore on helping me make behind- and in-front-of-the-scenes content that adds value and tells stories … photos, writing, video, podcasts – you name it.

Focus on community, not floorplans

We’ve been on a quest for the “perfect” workspace for nearly a century, with various design paradigms going in and out of vogue like bellbottoms, skinny ties and acid wash jeans. And while the design and location of the physical workspace certainly has an impact, I’d like to suggest that it’s a bit of a red herring – that when it comes to unlocking innovation and creativity, there’s something else far more important. The magic ingredient is… Many of the most transformational, groundbreaking idea...

Online tea communities

It can be hard to find fellow tea lovers nearby.   I can’t easily go into a restaurant and order a Shan Lin Xi oolong from this spring’s harvest and then rave about it to whoever is there.  The tea community is niche and very spread out.  Sure, there are people who can casually enjoy a cup of tea, and many restaurants that serve tea.  However, if you want to share tea geekery with others, the best place to do so is online. The internet tea community is a very positive place!  There isn’t much...

Community and the Restoration of 174-Year Old St. Croix Cove Church

Personal confession:  I fit most comfortably in the “spiritual but not religious” persuasion, and especially value the sense of human connectedness and community that touches all of us, which spiritual and religious traditions tend to foster.  With that in mind, I thought this post would be fitting for a Sunday. About a year ago I […]

Helping others = helping yourself [add this to your playbook]

Fact: creativity is a team sport. Yes, the actual act of making the work is sometimes a solo activity (drawing, writing, editing a film, etc) but the real driving force behind every creative pro is their community: their clients, collaborators, peers and the rest of the humans in the complex web of symbiotic relationships that give us inspiration, support and (ultimately) an income. Creativity cannot live in a vacuum. We depend on each other, like the members of any other ecosystem. And therefor...

Where are we headed in 2017?

This is our annual post, where we focus on where we are heading for the coming year in business, life, and travel. I’m not one for setting goals. They often lead to disappointment. James Altucher has written about this here and in his book and does a much better job of explaining why I don’t set goals. He doesn’t agree with goal setting either (love him!!) Now be warned – I am a highly motivated person. I don’t need a S.M.A.R.T. goal to whip me into action. I know the big picture of what I wan...

The “OTHER 50%” you’re missing = how to build your network + community

If you’re wondering how to build your network & create community around your work, here’s the no bullshit answer: Do the Work. Creating something and putting it out there is just the beginning. Networking is like any relationship, and it’s a two way street. You need to engage, be thoughtful and contribute to the conversation — not just with your work, but in the community around you. That’s BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER you have something to say or some content you want to get in front of others. Co...

We Are Not (That) Social Media

Social media was not supposed to act like traditional media. In fact, one could argue that everything we thought was possible about connectivity and social media could best be understood by reading the business book classic, The Cluetrain Manifesto. The anchor quote from that book was, "markets are conversations." Let's roll with that. Would you agree that if you were to split up your marketing efforts by traditional media and social media that your social media activity acts like a conversation...

YouTube Fighting to Remain Relevant in the New Age of Video
