I guess the re-design is nice; I'm just loathe to admit it.
You know how jarring it is when something you've been reading (analog, in this case) for a long time gets fucked with.
I shouldn't be bitching; it's not comparable to Tina Brown coming in and strap-on'ing The New Yorker, but still...
He tweeted one of my tumblr posts, which was nice.
No one clicked the payment button, though. Cheap internet bastards.
I heard a lot of nice things about the TNR redesign, but I'm usually not interested in UI unless it's broken, then I notice the hell out of it.
Weirdly enough, I read an article by Morozov in the Daily Beast the other day. He mentioned a time-lock safe he uses to secure his router cable so he can't use the Internet at specified parts of his day in order to get work done. I couldn't find the safe he was talking about, so I wrote him and he e-mailed back within the hour. I guess his time-lock was switched to "off".
Anyway, you're welcome for the riveting fucking story -- and thanks for the TNR link. I dislike their new design since Facebook™ helmet took over.
Here's an even more awesome article (and it's even intellectual, too)!
I know I've missed the deadline for photograph submission, but is it still too late to pay?
Were winning photos posted in current issue? Did't see it.
^ Access to the full article (which is awesome) is available to The New Yorker subscribers.
I appreciate wanting to respect TEDs intellectual credo through audience curation. Hopefully the organizers will not conscious or subconsciously select those who have the same social and educational background as themselves.
If being egalitarian is a facet of TED philosophy then a portion of audience slots will be open to those without "connections" and at a discounted price.
The current admission structure is out of touch and elitist. Why bother having an event if its just the same clique talking to each other? That accomplishes nothing and is antithetical to TEDs mission to inform all not a select few.
I'm holding out for TEDxFollyBeach.
Wouldn't ya know, I see this at 5:50pm on March 1!
@ Rufus Jones. Go to the entry page, click on amateur/student or pro depending on what you are, then click on "photo contest". Where it says title type in the names of all the files you are entering. Then check the two boxes that you read the fine print. Scroll down and use the photo upload section to upload your pictures.
I guess y'all didn't know he'd be there until 20 minutes before he was finished? I'm sure the Hipsters from Upper King would have flocked. Good article. Galaga Champ would be more impressive. Joust was....never that fun or popular. But a nice read.
The next time somebody complains about me complaining about shit and says "don't you have a real job?" I'm just going to tell them that I do what this guy does.
"Photographer, artist and capitalist are in no way mutually exclusive.
Not so, the emperor who commissioned it."
Funny, you didn't mention state sponsorship of the arts. Are you subtly stating that you are for state sponsorship of the arts? Wow! That's very socialist of you, IP! Congrats.
"With seven international awards to my credit, I think not !"
Want a cookie?
Oh, and none of those seven international awards could be for your website, could they? The one with the blank "about" page?
Worst contest! You actually want photographers to pay to enter a photo. With seven international awards to my credit, I think not ! You should be happy to share the works of local photographers with your readers, AT NO COST ! From reading the other most, this does not seem to be very well organized.
Some one must've found instructions I didn't. Please share. Each time I try to enter the contest on line, site sends me back to page asking choice of "amateur or pro". Are photos to be entered as an attachment to an email, on a disc or what? Is there a form? Please share any info. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have submitted my four, feeling a little nervous as this is my first photo comp
The photos we use for promotion are always winners from the most recent contest. Hope that helps. Thanks, Sam
Dustin above has a question that I wish to know as well...specifically the length of time you all would be using or holding the image for advertising/promotions etc. Just curious.
