Small Empires: Can an app really get Americans to care about their government again?

Unless you’re one of those gluttons for punishment who tunes in to CSPAN on a regular basis, it can be tough to follow along with the way the wheels of government are turning. That’s especially true in recent years, when partisan gridlock has been the norm, not the exception. Civic engagement, as measured by voter turnout, is at its lowest point in the last 75 years.

UX and Content Strategy

What is more important: User experience or content? I hate this type of question and to me they don’t make sense. It’s like asking a kid who he loves more — mom or dad. Or even worse, trying to figure out which came first — the chicken or the egg? But unlike the age old […]

Lytro changed photography — now can it get anyone to care?

“Okay, can I take it out of the box now?”

Lytro product director Colvin Pitts wants to show me the camera he’s been working on since 2007. He cautions that it’s just an early model, then gently lifts the stark, black device out of an unmarked box. It looks like a cross between a DSLR and a futuristic weapon. It’s big, with a wide round lens and a large grip, but it weighs less than 2 pounds and is perfectly comfortable in my hands. Its back face is slanted, like someone…

If you haven’t seen Cachemonet yet, run along and take a look at it for a while. We’ll still be here when you get back. Okay, done? Great! It’s an endlessly entertaining random blend of animated pixel art GIFs and eclectic electronic music, and having spent a lot of time gazing at it we simply had to get in touch with its creator, Tim Nolan, to find out the story behind it.

Watch these men take care of the frozen dead

We Will Live Again is a 12-minute long documentary that takes viewers inside the Cryonics Institute in Clinton Township, Michigan where the legally dead are stored in anticipation of medical miracles. There are both human and nonhuman patients — along with DNA samples and tissues — held in cryopreservation, a process that involves using sub-zero temperatures to halt cells from sustaining any further damage from external sources.

The short film provides an intimate look into the operations of the Cryonics Institute, as well as insight into the lives and minds of employees Ben Best and Andy Zawacki. Additionally, We Will Live Again also features the now-deceased Robert Ettinger, who many regard as the “father of cryonics” because of…

How to Care for Your Digital Camera

Digital CameraIf you have a Fuji pro digital camera, it is important to invest the time to properly care for it. After all, you do not want to have to buy a new one next month. Certain elements of caring for this important possession might come obvious to many people. For example, it’s rare that anyone is going to willingly place his or her camera in water. However, other features of the care process may be less clear. To ensure that you properly protect your camera, the following guide should help you.

1. Clean the Lens Properly
Whenever your lens needs cleaning, it is important to use the proper tools. Too often people reach for their shirts, tissues, or paper towels. Although these materials are obvious solutions to a dirty lens, they also contain particles that could scratch the lens. If this happens, the quality of your photos will decrease. Instead, you should use a lens tissue, a specialty brush designed to remove dirt from lenses, a microfiber cloth, or an air blower.

2. Use a Strap
To prevent damage, it is always a good idea to use a strap when you are taking pictures. Most people have experienced the frustration that occurs when an item breaks because it slips out of their hands. This is particularly true with today’s cellphones, and it can easily happen with your camera if you are not careful. When you use a strap, you avoid damaging your expensive camera in the event that it does fall out of your hands. In addition, you will also feel less pressure as you focus on your image and not on holding your hands steady.

3. Change the Memory Card When the Camera Is Off
If you take a lot of pictures, you will probably need to change the memory card in your camera before you can download your photos to your computer. Make sure that you never remove the memory card while the camera is still on. If you do this, the camera might still be writing the photos to the memory card. Taking the memory card out could cause you to lose these photos. Therefore, you need to wait until all photos have been downloaded and turn your camera off.

4. Charge Your Camera
It is sometimes a good idea to charge your camera, even if it runs on batteries. One day, the batteries in the camera may run out. If you are in the middle of an important photo shoot or trying to capture important memories, you will be glad that you took the time to charge your camera.

5. Carry a Camera Bag
Smart photographers also like to transport their camera in a nice bag. This is a wonderful way to protect your camera when you are not using it. In addition, it provides room for other equipment that you might need while you are shooting. When you are looking for a bag, make sure to find one that has it’s own compartment for your lens.

These five suggestions can help you take great care of your camera so that it captures beautiful pictures wherever you are. More importantly, it will last longer.
