Since the Tuesday post it’s fully known as the Link&Update section, today I’ll mix and match the two, in the hopes of building something interesting. In the past week or so I’ve had the opportunity of discussing with people of all kinds, and learning of their view on life and the roots of their inspiration. I for one gather inspiration from wherever I can, there are a couple of mainstream sources but in general I try to give value to each and every situation/event/piece of information and gather as much inspiration/knowledge I can out of it.
Now, regardless of the field you work in, innovation should be your major concern – if you’re a photographer, try to come up with something unique – use all the resources you can find to learn more, and when you’re out on the field, show us your take on the subject. If you’re an entrepreneur – don’t build the same business everybody else did just to make some money – innovate, make it easier for people to do certain things. The list is open.
Now, the first two links will be on inspiration, and the other one will go back to the photography field where we left off.
1. TEDTalk – Chris Anderson: How YouTube is driving innovation – TED’s Chris Anderson says the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation — a self-fueling cycle of learning that could be as significant as the invention of print.
2. BMW South Africa – Defining Inovation – Now, this has been out on the Internet for quite some time, it might not be quite new – however, the point is to grasp the idea behind it – the way one can see things, and build something new and with a lot of potential.
3. Ian Plant – A Sense Of Place – If you’re a photographer, you already know this – you should try to tell a story with your image. We’ve all seen snapshots on the Internet that are simply hallow in essence, and nothing about them tells any story. Some of them are nice to look at, but just like a song that has a catchy tune – you won’t hear anybody humming it 20 or 30 years from now.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
