Exploring Congo’s Heart of Darkness

Mon June 27, 2011

Photography and videos have always been used to bring about dramatic changes in society. They have the power to inform, reveal, explore and astound; they can further expose, convince and convict.

Read the revealing article on how our Western nations’ attempt to stop “conflict minerals” has the unintended effect of threatening the livelihood of artisanal miners in the region and others whose living depends on the miners’ activity. There’re no easy answers.

ISS To Broadcast Live, High-Def Stream Of Earth

Mon June 27, 2011

From Urthecast

A Canadian company with a strange looking name, UrtheCast (but pronounced “Earth cast”), will send two video cameras (one high-definition with 1m resolution) to the International Space Station. These cameras will be attached to the Russian portion of the ISS and they will be trained on our planet. Their footage will be beamed back to Earth and live-streamed across the Internet to create an experience that is like a “video version of Google Earth” — but with the playback functionality of YouTube. You will be able to log in and watch the live streams (starting mid-2012) — or you’ll be able to review past footage from when the ISS last passed over your head.

Imagine what fun it would be if you could independently zoom in to view what your neighbors are doing making that ruckus over the fence. “I am trying to do some work here!” :)

I wonder if aliens could hack in and tap into the video feed. You know, use Earth as their background image on TV?

Um, I wonder if I can zoom into the domes and watch hockey games? Um…

They should setup large TV screens in major spots in all cities of the world so people can see what is happening live around the world. Imagine…

Meet Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Photographer

Mon June 27, 2011

From opica1983

Of course, if Richard Bach were to rewrite Jonathan Livingston Seagull [QuickPrice Check – Kindle Edition] today, he may [or may not] include a camera in the story. If he does, he may get a totally different perspective from the seagull’s point of view.

What If You Lived On The Little Prince’s Planet?

Sun June 26, 2011

From bulletpeople

Oh, little prince! Bit by bit I came to understand the secrets of your sad little life… For a long time you had found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset. I learned that new detail on the morning of the fourth day, when you said to me:

“I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset now.”

“But we must wait,” I said.

“Wait? For what?”

“For the sunset. We must wait until it is time.”

At first you seemed to be very much surprised. And then you laughed to yourself. You said to me:

“I am always thinking that I am at home!”

Just so. Everybody knows that when it is noon in the United States the sun is setting over France.

If you could fly to France in one minute, you could go straight into the sunset, right from noon. Unfortunately, France is too far away for that. But on your tiny planet, my little prince, all you need do is move your chair a few steps. You can see the day end and the twilight falling whenever you like…

“One day,” you said to me, “I saw the sunset forty-four times!”

And a little later you added:

“You know– one loves the sunet, when one is so sad…”

“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”

But the little prince made no reply.
