    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…

    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

    Seth Godin's Blog on marketing, tribes and respect
    Seth Godin
    19 Nov 2014 | 1:59 am
    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.

  • Inside the concrete walls of Afghanistan's fun park, a respite from war

    Jessica Plautz
    21 Nov 2014 | 1:49 pm
    Kabul may seem an unlikely location for a fun park, but that's exactly what makes an attraction devoted to amusement so appealing. Thousands of families have visited Kabul's City Park since it opened in October, taking advantage of the chance to temporarily escape lives greatly affected by war. Even among park rides and costumed characters, the threat isn't far away: The park is surrounded by high concrete blast walls. See also: Space travel is dangerous. There will be no tourists. City Park is being hailed as Afghanistan's "first-ever" amusement park, but that's not quite accurate. Various…

Among the rules the two sides are in agreement on: The first priority will be to preserve human life, police will wear minimally required attire for their safety and police will establish channels of communication with protesters for deescalation during tense situations.

But to celebrate the company's 35th anniversary in 1981, someone at Sony had a brilliant idea: let's throw a contest, and get the unwashed masses to redesign our logo for us!Read Full Story

  • 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…

  • "This will blow over"

    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…

    18 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    John Koenig calls it vemödalen. The fear that you're doing something that's already been done before, that everything that can be done has been done. 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…

His background, such as it is, includes having run the US Navy SEAL sniper training program and training several of the world’s deadliest snipers. What ended up being interesting to me is that Brandon is often brought onto shows to comment as a US Navy SEAL, but they tend to underutilize his perspective, or ask general questions like, “Boy, it sure is hard to get through your training as a SEAL, isn’t it?”…
  • You Need a Better Network

    6 Nov 2014 | 6:37 am
    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…

  • 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,…

  • How to Use Content Curation to Create a Recurring Revenue Business

    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.

    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,…

  • Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor review: HealthKit compatibility doesn't add much

    21 Nov 2014 | 2:20 pm
    Like millions of people, I need to keep an eye on my blood pressure. You can check it when you visit your doctor, but many people have “white-coat hypertension.” Just getting their blood pressure measured at the doctor’s office stresses them out, resulting in higher than normal readings. All the better reason to check it at home. A regular arm-worn blood pressure monitor is around $50. So at $130, the Withings Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor isn’t competing on price, but rather convenience. Saving money doesn’t matter if you don’t wind up using the device, and Withings’ version…
  • Why Uber’s long PR nightmare will end in a user privacy win

    21 Nov 2014 | 12:42 pm
    Uber is in advanced-stage damage control mode to prove to the world that it actually cares about your privacy, but it’s going to be an uphill battle. The good news for you: The end result will be a strict privacy policy crafted by a company so scared of running afoul of regulators and potential users that it will elevate standards for the entire industry. Uber’s public relations crisis, which began with an executive threatening to investigate a journalist’s private life in retaliation for a critical column, has snowballed into a user privacy debacle that has even Sen.

  • Apple delivers another Yosemite beta as Wi-Fi issues persist

    21 Nov 2014 | 11:28 am
    Apple has come out with a second beta of Mac OS X Yosemite for developers, but it’s not clear whether this latest build will address the Wi-Fi problems that continue to affect an undetermined but apparently substantial number of users. With this build, labeled 10.10.2 (14C68k), Apple didn’t identify any specific problem areas it would like developers to focus on as they test the OS, according to multiple reports from news outlets and individuals with access to the release notes. When Apple released the first beta of Yosemite a little over two weeks ago, it asked developers to pay…

    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…

  • 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…

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…

    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 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
