No particular theme this week – more of a random trip through posts and stories I read this week that I thought were share-worthy.
Awesome Kid Gets Detention For Being Hilarious – You might be sick of “that’s what she said” jokes (although if you are, you sure aren’t my friend Jenn), but even if you are, you gotta love this. Why do you have to love it? Because if you don’t, the terrorists win.
We’re the Stupid Ones: Facebook, Google, and Our Failure as Developers – Out of all the follow-ups to the whole “a bunch of Facebook users got confused and thought a tech blog was Facebook” brouhaha, this is my favorite. And not because they linked to me and sent over 700 visitors my way. Well, not TOTALLY, at least.
The World Is a Lot Bigger Than You Think – Our pal Matt Chevy almost always has great content, but this post really hit home to me. If you don’t see success as a zero-sum game, you’ll likely dig what he’s laying down here.
Why ISO Is the New Megapixel – To some of us, this is just common sense. But if you’ve been buying into the megapixel myth (here’s a test to see if you have – do you know how many megapixels your camera has, but not it’s max usable ISO? If so, then bam! You are mythbusted…or something), you really need to read this to understand what the TRUE measure of quality and usability of a consumer digital camera should be.
