American Snapshots Vol. #1

Posted: June 17th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Books, Photography | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Inspired by Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Peter Turnley and others, I decided to comb through more than 90,000 digital images that I have taken over the last 10 years to make this short book of images.

Despite taking lots of pictures over the years, I think I am just beginning to take the sorts of images I seek. I have much more hard work ahead, but I hope my best images are still out there somewhere—hidden in the back of an old western bar, around the hoopla of a rodeo, within the gates of an abandoned factory or by the pump of a lonely gas station off the interstate.

In the end, taking a good picture is a quest that you never quite finish.

I will also never forget a lesson my friend Peter Turnley learned while sipping wine at La Tartine in Paris with photographer Edouard Boubat.

“Peter,” Boubat said, “if you keep your heart and your eyes open, there is a gift waiting for you at the corner of every street.

37 Signals Karl Rove Attack Video

Posted: March 18th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Books, Ideas, Social Media, Technology | Tags: , , | No Comments »

My good friend Jason Fried of 37 Signals never ceases to amaze me. Not only is he a highly successful software entrepreneur, celebrated public speaker, design fanatic, tea nut and all-round renaissance man, he has an uncanny ability to generate buzz about his company and its products. Now he is a best-selling author along with his partner David Heinemeier for their most recent business book “Rework” which is currently number 11 in sales on Amazon.

Jason and his team noticed that Karl Rove’s book was ahead of them in sales, so they made the “attack video” above. Very funny, clever and already has over 31,000 hits on YouTube.

Fried does it again.
