Why Flickr is a diamond in the rough, and how to make it awesome again

It was back in 2014 that I set up an account on Flickr. I posted a few images and forgot about the platform. Two years later I returned with a sensation of that this time it would be for good. Flickr is cozy —  it feels like a small town where everyone knows each other. I […] The post Why Flickr is a diamond in the rough, and how to make it awesome again appeared first on DIY Photography.

Morning Softness and Unfolding

  T he "studio" is full of still packed boxes. Let's unpack then. Talk about stuff. Just like that. It will help me understand where I am. A ceremony. Because I cannot sit and stitch. My back feels better but I did a bit of damage to my hip joint, which happens now and then. It's a weak spot, that joint. Some healing has to happen before I can sit for long periods. That includes the computer so I am not out and around visiting on the web much either. This was the first thing I pulled ...

Haiti: ten years later

Haiti (MNN) – Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the Haitian earthquake, easily one of the most significant natural disasters that the small Caribbean nation survived. On Jan. 12, 2010, a catastrophic 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck 15 miles west of Port-au-Prince, the country's capital.   The disaster affected an estimated three million people and killed hundreds of thousands. Ten years and billions of dollars of aid later, there's little noticeable improvement. What happened to the mone...

3 Benefits of Using an Energy Recovery Ventilator

An energy recovery ventilator, referred to as an ERV, works like a heat pump to extract air from one place and transfer it to another. However, the unique purpose of an ERV is to bring warm air away from those stale corners of your home and into areas where that heat can be felt and enjoyed. In the summer, it works just the same with cool air. Stale air can become a breeding ground to physical contaminants or microorganisms that can affect you and your family as well as your HVAC system. By prov...

Flickr owner SmugMug emails subscribers with an urgent request: help us find more paying users

When in April of last year, the photo hosting service SmugMug acquired the photo-hosting service Flickr from Verizon’s digital media subsidiary, SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill said he was committed to breathing new life into the service, calling it “core to the entire fabric of the Internet.” MacAskill didn’t reveal at the time how much SmugMug — which is itself an independent, family-owned operation  — paid for Flickr. But it seems now that SmugMug may have underestimated its carrying costs. In a...

Congregants allegedly pressured to to sell their own blood and donate the funds to their church

For all the good that many organized religions try to do in the world (albeit, often with ulterior motives,) there's no end to the amount of greasy shit that individual preachers and congregations get up too. Every creed has its assholes. Many are worse than others. If the allegations against SPAC Nation—a UK-based Christian organization, praised for working with young men and women in London to reduce the amount of knife violence that the city has been plagued by of late—are true, they'll have ...

Civ VI's Gathering Storm expansion is now available on iOS

I already purchased Civilization VI's The Gathering Storm expansion for my Mac, becasue of course I did. There's not a lot of games that my 2015 13" MacBook Pro Retina can play that I enjoy—Civ is one of them. I've been farting around with Sid Meir's games since the mid-1990s and my enthusiasm for his titles has only been crushed once. Sid, if for some reason you're reading this, Beyond Earth should have been an add-on for Civilization V. All on its lonesome, it was kind of a lame duck. Anyway, ...

Mexico: evangelistic meetings to go forward despite cartel violence

Mexico (MNN) – Gunmen affiliated with Mexican drug cartels ambushed a convoy in Sonora on Monday and killed at least nine Americans, six of whom were children. Mexico has long struggled with this kind of carnage. In a nation of 125 million, violence claims up to 100 lives per day. Organized crime appears to go unchallenged. While this most recent case doesn't directly connect to the persecution of Christians, it does reveal their plight. Encouraging church leaders (Photo courtesy of Mi...

Why You Don’t Need an Instagram Marketing Guide – Seriously!

When a colleague asked on Twitter who has written a brilliant Instagram marketing guide my willingness to help made me start my favorite search engine – Ecosia – and look for one.

The tribal web

Anthropologists ascribe a variety of definitions to the word 'tribe' and it can be a contentious term. Most are agreed though, that a tribe is a small society that has its own customs and culture and that these define it. This series has explored the notion of digital tribes and clans, and has applied these concepts to those who consistently inhabit virtual spaces.
