A quote by Calvin Coolidge
Perhaps, one of the most effective visualizations I have come across lately. Simple, to the point and message clearly communicated!
I have found it necessary to recently purge the list of people I follow on twitter simply because there was zero engagement between myself and some of the people I purged. I had found it tiring and boring to be an outsider to the conversations they have. Is this indicative of a deeper problem with the way twitter fundamentally works?
Social media and content management platforms are popping out everywhere. Should I play in all of them?
I came across a tweet linking to a video on vimeo which presents some of the great work of Sebastião Salgado. Video is 20 minutes long. Enjoy.

May 7, 2011 - Found a group of kids waiting in the grass to have their picture taken. Big day for all kids in the spring soccer program. They all have their pictures taken as a memento. Camera: IPhone 4 / Hipstamatic App
Came across some of the coolest photos I have seen - dogs in training for combat. The first two pictures are from a Foreign Policy magazine article. Check out the full gallery on the Foreign Policy Site - Essay: War Dog.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that the practice of photojournalism today needs a reboot. With the onslaught of cheaper user generated pictures and a general decline in demand for professional work, practitioners are being forced to find creative ways to peddle their wares in an increasingly shrinking market. But the future has never been brighter.
