We got our hands on the leaked script for Episode VII and boy is it nuts! And really short? We’re just glad to be a part of it.

Get that booth conversation going.

This one works if you drive with your windows open or even better right before you hit a hill during a humidity drenched summer run.

This photo series started after a conversation about how black dogs have a harder time getting adopted than other dogs. I decided to start a photo series photographing black dogs on a black background in my studio. Using social media, I’ve been recruiting local dog owners who have black dogs to photograph. 

From photographer Fred Levy, the Black Dog Project. Complement with how (not) to photograph a black dog.

My amazing sister has adopted two beautiful mutts.

In a generation, we have shifted from parents trying to stop teenagers slumping in front of the TV to young people losing all interest in the box. US teens are so occupied with social networks and mobile video that they watch only about 21 hours of broadcast TV a week.

The only medium that matters plays by totally different rules for advertisers

“The creatives will fight it to the last,” said one consultant. But the act that worked on TV is not pulling the same audience as before. Advertisers must find a new one and give it something it wants. To judge by Cannes, they are still dreaming.
Much as I am a fan of work like Egger’s and Doctorow’s it is almost too easy to write a dystopia these days. The real challenge, it seems to me, is to write a new utopia.

Better networks get even better as success feeds back on itself.

— Chris Dixon paraphrasing the Matthew Effect. Interesting in lieu of Cory Doctorow’s critique of Piketty. The big question is can Capitalism reconcile with the power of networks.

It’s a charming reminder that Facebook isn’t just the place you go to see pictures of your friends’ kids or your racist uncle’s latest rant against the government—it’s also an exciting research lab, with all of us as potential test subjects.

…the proper course is not to bend and twist the Act’s terms in an effort to produce a just outcome, but to apply the law as it stands and leave to Congress the task of deciding whether the Copyright Act needs an upgrade. I conclude, as the Court concluded in Sony: “It may well be that Congress will take a fresh look at this new technology, just as it so often has examined other innovations in the past. But it is not our job to apply laws that have not yet been written. Applying the copyright statute, as it now reads, to the facts as they have been developed in this case, the judgment of the Court of Ap- peals must be [affirmed].”

I respectfully dissent.

I’m torn on activist vs constructionist justice decision models and in this case, when it comes to a business outcome, I had hoped that constructionists would rule. It’s tough to interpret that which you don’t fully grasp.
