American Girl In Italy is speaking up about the iconic photo 60 years later

Fri August 19, 2011

Sixty years after the iconic photo of an American Girl in Italy, by Ruth Orkin was taken, Ninalee Craig, now 83, has decided to speak up about the photo. She says that, despite what the photo may have conveyed, she was actually having “an absolutely wonderful time.”

She was only 22 at that time and was touring Europe alone when she met photographer Ruth Orkin. Together, they concocted the idea of filming the experience of visiting a foreign country alone. They took pictures for 2 hours on the streets of Florence and the iconic image was not staged, though Orkin did tell her to go back and walk down the street one more time.

Who’s Now Using Google+: Students

Fri August 19, 2011

A survey conducted by Bime gives an interesting peek at how Google is going about opening up access to Google+ — or perhaps in spite of its effort, through invites. The most surprising stats has to do with how students are now taking over the social network site, perhaps in an effort to distance themselves from parents and other unwanted “friends.” It also found that, though Google reached an impressive 25 million users less than 1 month after its launch, only 17% of these users are “active,” a mere 2.5 million people.

Google Launches Learn With Google Beta

Fri August 19, 2011


From learnwithgoogle

Google has its fingers in every pie, it seems, not content to stay with its core search offerings. “Learn With Google” is a site targeted to small businesses and features “All you need to know to grow.” It includes basic but important information for creating your business plan, learning about marketing, running AdWords to promote your business, etc. You get my drift: it is really a big infomercial for Google products and services. Even the URL gives you a hint it’s an ad: http://www.google.com/ads/learn/

So I’m not sure how much you’ll really learn about running a successful small business, but it is nevertheless choke full of information on how you can tie Google products and services into your small business, which seems to be really the purpose of the site (as all call to actions lead to these products/services) — and which is not a bad thing considering that you really kind of need to do these things.

As always, judge for yourself and visit Learn With Google.

Arch Rig Simplifies Follow Focus for DSLRs

Fri August 19, 2011


From archrigcraig

Craig McMahon has created the Arch Rig Follow Focus System for DSLR [QuickPrice Check], a simple folow focus system that allows cinematographers to always maintain in-line sight with the action taking place, and thus allowing them to know when to pull focus. Note that because of the design, the Arch Rig is primarily meant for use with fixed-focal (Prime) lenses, though it may accomodate some zoom lenses.

The Arch Rig is a Lockable Follow Focus system designed for DSLR cinema production. The rig allows for tripod or jib mounting. The wide rig design is to maintain an improved peripheral sight leveling, thus increasing a leveled picture by 48% to 70% in handheld usage. The two upper handgrips are designed for fluid handheld low tracking, and great vertically plumb high low-moves.

The Arch Rig allows for in-line-sight focusing. Cinematographers can finally have control over their cameras without relying on assistants to pull focus for them. Because of the Arch Rig’s in-line-sight design, point and shoot is back for the operator’s view.

The rig fits Canon T2i, T3i, 60D, 7D, 5D, Panasonic GH2, Nikon D90 and others of similar size.

The Arch Rig comes with 3 Lens Levers for 180mm to 285mm circumferences (approx. 2 ½ – 3 5/16 across) lenses. Although the Arch Rig can work with many zoom lenses, it is primarily designed to work with fixed-focal (Prime) lenses. The rig comes with the standard size arch that accommodates standard DSLR height (without additional Battery Grip add-on).

Most of the rig is hand crafted and may have minor imperfections. The Rig has been designed from many years of movie production elements and excels in simplicity and durability. Camera, lens and any third party accessories pictured are not included with this rig.

Disney Gets Some Help From the Magic in iPads to Redesign Fantasyland

Fri August 19, 2011


From DisneyParks

How does Disney redesign a magical world? Apparently by borrowing some magic from iPads. The engineers at Disney (called “Imagineers”) take their design onsite on the iPad tas they visualize adding new attractions, restaurants and other guest areas that will make up the expansion to Fantasyland.

You’ll notice that though the Imagineers are not shy to call technology by its various names, such as Webex, they all to a person refuse to name the iPad, which they refer to as “tablet.”

In the video, you’ll see 3D imaging software running on a desktop and we don’t think that software runs on the iPad. The iPad simply does not have the power to run such 3D visualization software. Instead, snapshots of problem areas are transferred to the iPad and brought onsite to show the contractors where the problems are. Magical! (Is there a sarcasm emoticon?)
