     It was easy to see it coming. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange formally asked for asylum in France in a letter sent to Le Monde. Over the past couple of weeks, WikiLeaks dropped multiple documents related to France and Germany. We learned that the NSA monitored French presidents and officials, spied on top French companies and eavesdropped Angela Merkel for sure. Read More

    The Wright Brothers decided to solve the hardest problem of flight first. It's so tempting to work on the fun, the urgent or even the controversial parts of a problem.  There are really good reasons to do the hard part first, though. In addition to not wasting time in meetings about logos, you'll end up getting the rest of your design right if you do the easy parts last.

The Military said the report is misleading: what's going on here? War Is Boring published a report which said the F-35 can't dogfight, based on a report from a test pilot it obtained. The post gained significant traction on the web, prompting officials from Lockheed Martin to make an official response Wednesday which said the report "didn't tell the entire story."

    About 48 million years ago, a distant relative of the "Jesus lizard," named for its knack for walking on water, darted around the tropical rainforests of ancient Wyoming, a new study finds. The ancient lizard may have also performed the seemingly miraculous feat, though the researchers can't say for sure because they didn't find the animal's feet. From the fossil they did find — a skull with a toothy smile — in 2008, they posit the animal was likely the same size as a modern Jesus lizard — about 2 feet (0.6 meters) long from head to tail.

"That symbol of purity isn't good enough for my family." "Your version of the way things should be is a compromise." "What, you're not wearing an official jersey to the game?"

I totally understand our focus on putting on a perfect show, on delighting people, on shipping an experience that's wonderful. But how do you and your organization respond/react when something doesn't go right? Because that's when everyone is paying attention.

    Guy Kawasaki
    20 May 2015 | 9:42 am
    Doctors conduct postmortems to figure why people died. They do this to solve a crime, prevent the death of others, and satisfy curiosity. However, once somebody dies, it’s too late to help him. Entrepreneurs and their investors also often analyze why a product, service, or company died—especially if it’s someone else’s company. And, as in the case of dead people, a postmortem is too late to do much good for a defunct product, service, or company. Enter the concept of premortems, coined by Gary Klein, chief scientist of Klein Associates, and author of Sources of Power: How People Make…

    At any conference, there are ten times more panelists than there are keynote speakers, so the odds are higher that you’re on a panel than giving a keynote speech. Therefore, rocking a panel is an important skill for evangelists, too. A panel looks easy. There are four or five other people on it, and it lasts only sixty minutes. How hard could it be? Herein lies the problem: because everyone thinks a panel is short and easy, no one prepares for it. In reality, a panel is harder than an individual speech because you cannot control a panel like your own keynote speech, and you get much less…

    Apple Music's main draw is its focus on curation and its ability to learn about your music preferences to provide recommendations that suit your tastes. Apple's new Music app focuses heavily on content discovery, with an entire "For You" section dedicated to recommendations. According to Apple, its music experts "handpick songs, artists, and albums based on what you listen to and like," and this content is what populates the "For You" section. Apple's explained that "For You" recommendations get better over time based on "whether you love a song or not," but the company hasn't explicitly…

Harold has convinced me to take him to the SCG Convention in Texas. To say he’s hyped and excited is to really underplay how he feels about it. As part of this, I’ve encouraged Harold to do as much of the planning and deciding as possible. Harold chose the Aloft hotel chain. Swell by me. He picked it because he loved the videos. I prepaid for the days of the conference. And then, I ran into a snag.Continue ReadingThe post…
  • The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have

    Chris Brogan
    26 Jun 2015 | 11:32 am
    I’m sprawled out on my bed writing to you. My son is reading a copy of Retro Gamer and my daughter is playing Splatoon (it’s a Wii game that your kid probably wants). Lately, I’ve been thinking about this blog, about you, about my business, about what I stand for. That kind of stuff. The Biggest Competitive Advantage I Have is Openness and Honesty But that sounds like I’m trying to be virtuous. I’m not. I just think it’s easier/better/faster to just tell you what I think and feel, instead of worrying. Continue ReadingThe post The Biggest Competitive…
  • How to Get Ahead if You’re Shy – or the Secret Magic of Puppets

    Chris Brogan
    8 Jun 2015 | 11:03 am
    My son, Harold, found out quite by surprise that he really likes puppets. He pretty much had to have this Kermit the Frog puppet. What we did with it was quite interesting. And in the process, I found myself thinking about me, then you, and about us. About all of us. And about something I’m not sure I’ve yet shared in this specific way. The Magic of Puppets When you put a puppet on your hand, you empower someone else to speak for you. You can say things you might not say from your own lips. Because hey, it’s a puppet. Puppets are like a super power.Continue ReadingThe post…

    28 May 2015 | 4:54 am
    I’m a big fan of the work of Dr Nick Morgan. In my circles, when people ask me advice about how to be a better professional speaker, I tell a somewhat backhanded and loving story about how I paid for a day of Dr. Morgan’s time, hellbent on having him make me a much better speaker. I loved everything he had to say. It was brilliant, full of really important details and ideas. And I couldn’t really make good use of any of it. Dr. Morgan mentions it in this post. For instance, “The good news for you conference organizers, then, is that if you hire Chris you’ll get…
  • The Value of Data Velocity in Marketing

    Chris Brogan
    21 May 2015 | 6:33 am
    I’m working on some interesting stuff as it relates to both bigger businesses as well as small businesses. I’m interested in how better use of data could open up a whole big slice of not-yet-tapped economic value for companies (again both bigger and smaller). It’s times like this where I feel bad for people who think I’m the “social media guy.” I’m thinking about velocity as it applies to marketing. Meaning, if we knew something faster, could we add more value and help someone better? Velocity as a Marketing Tool I was in Atlanta the other day for 20…

    During the past four months, one of the things Demian Farnworth has been trying to experiment with is telling more stories. Historical stories, fake stories, personal stories. See, what he’s trying to do is make the audio more visual. And he has found the best way to do that is to share stories. Illustrations. Anecdotes. Et cetera. Audio really challenges your storytelling abilities because you must paint a vivid picture. You might have noticed a string of stories in the last few episodes of Rough Draft. So, no surprise Demian has another one for you today. It’s a made-up story, a…

  • Think Fast! Using Heuristics To Increase Use Of Your Product

    Victor Yocco
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:34 am
    People have many tough decisions to make; whether they should use your application or website to accomplish a task shouldn’t be one of them. Your design team can take advantage of our knowledge of the human mind and human behavior by accounting for a number of heuristics, or mental shortcuts, that researchers have identified. You might be familiar with the term “heuristic” from the UX research method of heuristic evaluation. A heuristic evaluation involves experts evaluating the interface and interactions of a system based on accepted usability best practices. Forget about that for now.

  • Design Principles: Compositional Balance, Symmetry And Asymmetry

    Steven Bradley
    29 Jun 2015 | 2:00 am
    A balanced composition feels right. It feels stable and aesthetically pleasing. While some of its elements might be focal points and attract your eye, no one area of the composition draws your eye so much that you can’t see the other areas. Balancing a composition1 involves arranging both positive elements and negative space in such a way that no one area of the design overpowers other areas. Everything works together and fits together in a seamless whole. The individual parts contribute to their sum but don’t try to become the sum. An unbalanced composition can lead to tension. When a…
  • Rapid Front-End Prototyping With WordPress

    Daniel Pataki
    26 Jun 2015 | 6:26 am
    Prototyping is one of the best things that can happen within a project, yet it is extremely underutilized. Prototyping makes a project better suited to users, elevates user experience, increases the quality of your final code, and keeps clients happy. The problem is that developers often see prototyping as a waste of time, since high-quality prototypes take considerable effort to make. I want to show you that by using WordPress, highly interactive prototypes with great visuals are not at all that difficult to make. 1 (Image credit: Jeff Sheldon via Unsplash2) (View large version3) First,…

    Responsive1 images2 have been keeping us on our toes for quite some time, and now that they are getting traction in browsers, they come with a scary problem: the need to efficiently resize all our image assets. The way responsive images work is that an appropriately sized image is sent to each user — small versions for users on small screens, big versions for users on big screens. It’s fantastic for web performance, but we have to face the grim reality that serving different sizes of images to different users means that we first need to create all of those different files, and that…

    Natalia Robert
    2 Jul 2015 | 7:15 am
    This location was discovered by walking BEYOND the main public area and exploring nearby dirt paths. There’s nothing quite like the rush of finding a nook, a cranny, a wall, a corner, or a building that looks amazing in photos but has not been fully discovered by others just yet. Ask any photographer about unique locations, and most likely they will cringe a bit at the thought of giving up their secret spots. How, then, do you find new locations for yourself? It’s not always necessary to go outside of your city (or even your neighborhood!) to find a great photography location. Here are…

So, why not grab your camera, head to your nearest fair and try out some of the following ideas for yourself. When to visit Fairgrounds can be fun to take pictures of, whether you go in the daytime, or at night. However, with their bright lights, they really come alive once the sun has gone down.

    Lightroom Killer Tips

  • Revisit the past

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:05 am
    So my wife was wanting me to print out some of our family pictures to hang on the wall, and so when she had made her selection of images that she wanted, I had a few of them that were just small files for display on the web, and when I went looking for the large jpeg, I could only find the RAW image. So, I had to re-edit them using the latest version of Lightroom. The difference in the two images is pretty cool when you look at the detail in the clouds and the more precise way I could brighten the faces etc… And so my tip for today is to go back to some of your favorite images or even…
  • Using the new Dehaze slider on Fireworks

    30 Jun 2015 | 7:13 am
    This tip comes courtesy of one of our readers (thanks Randy F.) who pointed out in a comment here last Friday that the new Dehaze slider just added to Lightroom CC works pretty darn well for removing haze from Fireworks, and with July 4th coming up, I thought it was a perfect tip for today. I have noticed that the slider is much more effective (no pun intended) on images still in RAW format, versus those in JPEG (I did a comparison on the same file in RAW vs an exported JPEG and it’s a pretty wide difference). So, keep this up your sleeve for the Independence Day post-processing. Hope…

Simple Right-click on the black bar of the Filmstrip to bring up a new menu that has a list of your recent folders amongst other things.
