    I am fortunate to know people like Carey Lohrenz, the first female F14 combat pilot, who gave me the shirt in the picture above. She wrote a great book called Fearless Leadership, by the way, a Wall Street Journal bestseller about how to be a better personal leader and then how to lead others. She’s a top shelf kind of person to know, and I intend to connect with her as often as possible over the coming years. I added her to my Whatsapp account for that reason, too. I want to be able to connect with her when I need something, or when I have something to offer her. Continue ReadingThe…

  • The wrong question to ask yourself before crowdfunding

    A friend explained to me all the reasons for her upcoming Kickstarter campaign. The machine she wanted to buy was sorely needed, it would increase her productivity and also make her day significantly easier--it made perfect business sense. These are all great reasons to borrow money from a bank or a professional investor. They aren't good reasons to crowdfund. No, the right question is, "how will the new financial relationship I offer to my biggest supporters enhance their lives?" There's a huge amount of emotion and story we tell ourselves before we send in money to crowdfund something.

Still, he wasn’t prepared for what he encountered last Dec. 20, when he came to work and found dozens of employees wearing garish sweaters covered in lights, bells, and ornaments. “It really hit me like a brick, because one outfit was more hideous than the next,” he says. It turns out it was National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, celebrated since 2011 on the second or third Friday of December. The craze had…
  • From Bottom Burn to Bonkle, new map shows Britain's rudest place names

    LONDON — We've always known Britain had some odd and often rude place names, but this is ridiculous. A new map has collated all of the more — shall we say — challenging names across the country, taking out the conventional towns and cities, and leaving just the more profane. So Bristol is absent, but Butt Mound is clearly marked. You won't find Glasgow, but Gusset shouldn't be a problem.

  • The tragedy of the last 10%

    Seth Godin
    21 Nov 2014 | 2:29 am
    In a competitive market, if you do the work to lower your price by 10%, your market share grows. If you dig in deep, analyze, reengineer and make thoughtful changes, you can lower your price another 10%. This leads to an even bigger jump in market share. The third time (or maybe the fourth, or even before then), you only achieve a 10% savings by cutting safety, or quality, or reliability. You cut corners, certainly. The last 10% costs your workers the chance to make a decent living, it costs your suppliers the opportunity to treat their people with dignity, and it costs you your reputation.

    I can't think of a single time that an individual or an organization has created a brand-new worldview, spread it and then led that tribe. There were Harley-type renegades before there was Harley Davidson. There were digital nomads before there was Apple. There were pop music fans before there were the Beatles and Rastafarians before Marley. Without a doubt, a new technology creates new experiences. But the early adopters who gravitate to it were early adopters before we got there. Our job is to find the disconnected and connect them, to find people eager to pursue a goal and give them the…

    Seth Godin
    18 Nov 2014 | 1:04 pm
    Your employees notice when you take action. And when you don't. When a storm hits your company, the instinct is to wait it out, to seek shelter, to work to set an agenda, not to let the outside world set it for you. And sometimes this works. But even if the storm passes, your employees remember. They remember the standard you've set and the way things are around here. Every time we give someone the employee of the month parking space for perfect compliance, or fire someone for creating a culture of disrespect, we send a message. Action or inaction are both forms of leadership and standard…

Just about every successful initiative and project starts from a place of replication. The chances of being fundamentally out of the box over the top omg original are close to being zero. A better question to ask is, "have you ever done this before?" Or perhaps, "are the people you are seeking to serve going to be bored by this?" Originality is local. The internet destroys, at some level, the idea of local, so sure, if we look hard enough…

She wrote a great book called Fearless Leadership, by the way, a Wall Street Journal bestseller about how to be a better personal leader and then how to lead others. She’s a top shelf kind of person to know, and I intend to connect with her as often as possible over the coming years. I added her to my Whatsapp account for that reason, too. I want to be able to connect with her when I need something, or when I have something to offer her. Continue ReadingThe…

    I’m pretty excited to announce a new project I’m doing with the legendary Grant Cardone on his Whatever it Takes Network.

  • Follow the Value

    Chris Brogan
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:19 pm
    My business is to equip owners. I know that sounds fluffy. The current way I do that is through courses and other educational experiences. But, if tomorrow, I could create some other method to deliver the same kind of value (or better), would I abandon courses? Sure. The courses aren’t the big goal. Delivering value to owners is the goal. Follow the Value I’m obsessed with delivering value. What’s cool about that obsession is that I spend a lot of my time noodling with one question: “what else do owners need to succeed?” This gives me a strong mission to follow,…

    Brian Clark
    20 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    It’s no secret that I’m a tireless advocate for the creation of original content to fuel business growth. My next online project, however, is based on … curation. You read that right. I’m starting a new site, and the centerpiece of my content strategy will be locating and making sense of the smartest articles, audio, and video I can find in that topical market that are created by others. Sound strange? Listen in and check out the three-part process I’m following, so you can start building your own profitable content curation strategy: In this 49-minute episode…
  • Can You Help Us Out? Take Our 2015 Online Business Survey

    19 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Here at Copyblogger Media, it’s safe to say that we’ve been in your shoes. As freelancers, consultants, content publishers, and small business owners … It’s in our DNA. Our founder, Brian Clark, was a recovering attorney in the mid 90s when he discovered the Internet and just knew he could make a living from it. In less than a decade, he went on to build several businesses before he grew Copyblogger Media into a $10 million a year company — started, mind you, from nothing more than a blog that published two articles a week. And just about every other employee…
  • How We Built Our Careers Online (And What You Can Learn From It)

    Jerod Morris
    18 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The two biggest concerns for the average blogger are obscurity and sustainability. In other words … for the vast majority of us who set sail creating content online, we want to first develop an audience; and then, once we have an audience, we want to find a way to earn a living from our content. The first concern can feel daunting enough, because building an audience isn’t easy. The second concern can feel damn near impossible — because despite countless examples of people who have done it, sometimes we struggle to see ourselves succeeding in the same way. Which is silly. So…
  • What You Need to Know to Make a Living as a Blogger Right Now

    Demian Farnworth
    17 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    The average blogger only has two concerns. The first is obscurity. She is a total stranger in a vast world loaded with people — unknown, inconspicuous, and insignificant. Odd, considering there are so many people online. But it’s a simple law: We all start at the bottom. One recent study discovered that the average British blogger had only 285 subscribers, received 18 comments a day, and earned about $120 a month. That’s the reward for someone who’d been blogging for two years and eight months. Yes, those surveyed also worked full-time jobs. In an informal poll,…

    21 Nov 2014 | 4:39 am
    Earlier this week, Re/code’s Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher announced that the site was doing away with comments—the idea being that social media is now so prevalent that those who wish to air their views can contact writers and editors via Twitter and Facebook. I’m not entirely sold on their reasoning, as I would hardly welcome being splattered with reader comments in a Twitter stream that I largely use for my personal pleasure, nor do I believe that 140 characters is enough to express complex ideas. And while Facebook is an option, I believe there’s some value in comments appended…
  • Ask the iTunes Guy: Missing artwork, shuffling iTunes 12, and gifting movies

    21 Nov 2014 | 3:45 am
    It’s time for a grab-bag column. Some of this week’s questions deal with iTunes 12: What do you do when album art disappears? How do you mark TV shows as watched? And how do you play music in shuffle mode in iTunes 12? I also look at a question about gifting a movie you’ve purchased from the iTunes store, and an app-updating problem with iOS 8.Disappearing album artwork Q: I’ve noticed in iTunes 12 that some of my albums don’t display artwork, even though I’ve manually added album art to all my music. I also found this with some of my movies. Is there any way to get the artwork…
  • Bugs and Fixes: What's with Yosemite renaming shared computers?

    21 Nov 2014 | 3:30 am
    There’s a mysterious network bug in OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The symptom is that the shared name (as viewed in the Sharing System Preferences pane) of one or more of your OS X devices keeps changing. It may start out, for example, as “My MacBook.” Check back later and it will be “My MacBook (1).” Still later, it will have morphed to “My MacBook (2)” ad infinitum. These changes occur without any action on the part of the user. If a number gets appended to the name of your computer in Sharing, you're probably a victim of the bug described here.To read this article in full or to leave…

  • Why You Should Include Your Developer In The Design Process

    Paul Boag
    21 Nov 2014 | 5:06 am
    Should designers be able to code? This topic never seems to die, with its endless blog posts, Twitter discussions and conference talks. But the developer’s involvement in the design process seems to be addressed very little. This is a shame, because developers have a huge amount to add to discussions about design. The unfortunate truth is that many designers have a somewhat elitist attitude towards design. They believe that only they can come up with good design ideas. That is simply not true. Everybody has the ability to make good design suggestions, including developers. Admittedly, a…

    In the wonderful world of millions of mobile apps, many users suffer from ADD (app deluge disorder), and no aphorism looms larger for developers than “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” Once a large group of people are downloading your app, you’ve already won half the battle and have accomplished your primary goal. Now, keeping them engaged post-download is your next one. This is where onboarding takes center stage.

  • The State Of Animation 2014

    Rachel Nabors
    18 Nov 2014 | 5:59 am
    The post-Flash era is hardly free of animation. CSS animation is quickly becoming a cornerstone of user-friendly interfaces on mobile and desktop, and JavaScript libraries already exist to handle complex interactive animations. In the wake of so much “CSS versus JavaScript animation” infighting, a new API specifically for web animation is coming out that might just unite both camps. It’s an exciting time for web animation, and also a time of grave miscommunication and misinformation. In 2014, I had the chance to travel the world to talk about using animation in user interfaces and…

    There comes a time in nearly everyone’s career when changing jobs is the natural next step. As a designer, you might start looking for a new job when you feel you have hit a wall with your current employer or when greater opportunities are present at other companies. After taking the necessary steps to prepare for a job search, like updating your resume and nurturing a small savings account to provide a little cushion, think about what you want in your next job. Planning for job requirements, salary and perhaps location before applying is obvious, but many people forget to set criteria for…

    A few weeks ago, I posted a link to a very short video tutorial I did over on the new KelbyOne Blog on how to use a camera on a monopod, with a fisheye lens, and trigger it with a wireless remote (here’s the link) for a really unique overhead look (it’s a lot easier than you’d think).This week, a photographer named Konstantin Articus in Germany did something I so love — he took that monopod/fisheye lens idea that I showed for use in sports, and he took that idea and applied it to something completely different, and he got just wonderful results (see below).Thanks so…

We had friends in common, and she had seen some of the photos that I had taken of friends and family, but we had never met. We talked over the phone, and arranged a time for me to come to her home and take some photos of her daughter. The big day arrived a week or so later, and I was SO nervous. I wasn’t sure what her home looked like, or what the lighting situation would be, or whether her daughter was sitting up by herself yet or not. I didn’t know how long I should stay, whether I…
  • Photographing in Airports

    Daniel Korzeniewski
    20 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    Ahh, the joy of travel photography, who doesn’t love that? But like everything in life, all that glitters is not gold. For travel photography, you actually need to travel, and in many circumstances, air travel and lengthy waits in airports are common. Nobody likes being stranded in a terminal for hours, or experiencing delays, missed or long connections, all of which happen pretty often. But it can be different for us, the ones who embrace photography. Instead of just sitting there doing nothing, we can have some fun doing what we enjoy the most. At least, that’s what I do – and…

The Fujifilm X-T1 is currently one of the most popular mirrorless cameras, and is the model that is persuading many people to leave their DSLRs, be they enthusiast or professional photographers. For the past six months, I have been using it in various situations to discover exactly why people have fallen head over heels for Fujifilm’s high-end model.

The big story on this 24MP full-frame mirrorless is its 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization - the first that we've seen in a full-frame camera. Sony claims that this IS system can reduce shake by 4.5 stops using the CIPA standard. The Hybrid AF system has also been improved upon, offering 30% faster speeds and a 1.5X improvement in tracking. The a7 II also sports a larger grip, new front dial, and sensibly relocated shutter release. Read more
