This is the progression from a great Wilco song. I'm going to be in Germany soon so that is the inspiration.
Nice to see the physical version of the book. Order it from any of the retailers listed on this site.
I was playing around with layering images beneath a transparent talk or thought bubble to add visual intention to words (or textual intention to images).
After reading about all of the buzz and interest in and around Pokemon GO, I decided to give a try. It is a really cool, interesting experience and I can certainly see its addictive, viral, and social nature. I also know it's not for me, at least for now. I will be curious to see how it inspires a whole new category of engagement and activity socially, recreationally, and perhaps, academically. I have since deleted and reinstalled the app.
We kicked off our new newsletter in support of Blending Leadership. Below is the sketch I made based on the subject matter. And here is a link to the newsletter itself.
Over the last two weeks I made some time-lapse notes in Explain Everything during keynote talks at a couple of conferences (ISTE 2016 and iPadPalooza). Several people have asked about my process so here is a quick version. If there is interest I'll produce a more detailed series of posts both on how I actually take notes and capture the process.
I think we should add the ability to speed up and slow down clips/sections in the timeline in Explain Everything which will eliminate the need to use iMovie for the time-lapse effect. Below are the two videos I made earlier this month.
Sitting on an airplane I received a text message from a friend with a mysterious YouTube link. Sometimes I wait before clicking on things he sends me because they are not always appropriate in certain audiences...but I clicked this one anyways. It was a link to a video of someone playing a remixed version of the original Legend of Zelda game for NES (ca. 1987). This version has been designed for play with a VR headset like Oculus. Watching this makes me want to play and experience this virtual reality. And I also wonder if its the familiarity of the setting that makes me curious - a way to relive something from my childhood in a different way - one that wasn't possible before. Now don't get me wrong, I still enjoy hooking up my Nintendo and playing these old games, but this is just cool to me. The guy in the video does not seem to have played the original version of the game.
