/ What's new in design digital culture

It’s out! Ello iOS app!

It’s out! Ello iOS app by Ello.

_______

I have been beta testing – and I can assure you – it’s a beautiful app. The minimalist interface makes visuals pop and since large format, .gifs are welcomed, video + music embedding – you can see (and hear) a stream of non-end eye candy.

_______

Check the Discovery panel to extend your network, either by inviting others to join or scrolling the suggested users.

_______

Choose how you want to read who you follow between single post feed (Friends) or grid feed (Noise).

_______

Notifications panel is where you can see who has interacted with your content. Hit a link or visual to comment.

Hit an avatar will take you to user profile.

_______

Some of the desktops functionalities will be ported soon – and it’s going to be even more awesome. If you are a creative or a geek – and would like to be part of an ad-free – no data collection platform (ever!!!)..

Ello is right for you!

There is no equivalent social platform for the conversations + interactions I have every day. People are nice. Really, really nice.

And brilliant as to depth of articles posted and comments passed.

And funny too.

Follow me @cgwarex. I also curate the @ellodesign community.

See ya there!

Project Soli

Google is developing an interaction sensor using radar technology that can track movement with accuracy. It´s the size of a small computer chip and can be inserted into everyday objects.

Curiosity is essential

3 Ways embracing curiosity can change your life by Warren Berger

_______

Penchant for wondering and questioning has consistently led him to new ideas and fresh opportunities, while also helping him to overcome fears, broaden his thinking, and become a better manager of others.

The most successful ones to be people of wide-ranging curiosity who also knew when and how to narrow their focus, channeling their curiosity in a particularly promising direction.

1. Use curiosity to broaden your horizons and discover new possibilities.
2. Use curiosity as a self-motivating force.
3. Use curiosity to inspire and lead others.

_______

I am a ‘why’ person – to the point of annoyance. If something catches my attention – I will research till I understand – make sense of it – validate or infirm previous assumptions or just defeat my ignorance.

I never take anything I think for granted – I am always ready to revisit previous opinions. As a mentor once said: ‘You are ignorant, till you ask the question.’

Curiosity is essential to creativity.

Being imaginative??

How to build your imagination by Tanner Christensen

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
— Albert Einstein

_______

A crucial aspect of creative thinking is the capacity to imagine.

What fuels imagination is everything we already know.

Build knowledge and gain new understandings of the world.

Remain powerfully curious about that knowledge.

Imagining the improbable.

Friday is for Art / #2

Friday is for Art / #2

_______

I do abstract art. Be it painting, digital media using generative design and/or photo apps manipulations as well as glitch art.

Altho may look like I am just playing – it is in fact, demanding, pushing my limits and exhilerating creative work.

New Clues *121

New Clues manifesto by two Cluetrain authors, Doc Searls and David Weinberger.

This is a long read article – be you a newbie or seasoned internet dweller – it’s a must. Set quality time aside.

_______

Hear, O Internet.

The Net is of us, by us, and for us.

The Internet is ours.

Caring — mattering — is the motive force of the Internet.

Every link by a person with something to say is an act of generosity, an act of selflessness, bidding our readers leave our page to see how the world looks to someone else.

Personal is human. Personalized isn’t.

Every new page makes the Web bigger. Every new link makes the Web richer.

Hackers got us into this and hackers will have to get us out.

Live the values you want the Internet to promote.

The gravity of connection is love.

Long live the open Internet.

Long may we have our Internet to love.

_______

The Cluetrain Manifesto by Rick Levine, Christopher Locke, Doc Searls, David Weinberger.

_______

The Cluetrain Manifesto roared into the Web’s consciousness in 1999. Appearing first as a website, quickly followed by the book, the Manifesto proclaimed an end of business as usual.

The authors, four Internet experts, led readers through the new reality of the networked marketplace with their 95 Theses, including the first one—startling in its simplicity and truth: Markets are conversations.

_______

ndlr: I am proud to be part of the early pioneers / activists / theorists / adopters (and signees) and even prouder – to keep dreaming + building this connected world of ours.

The Internet prime directive = communicate + exchange + collaborate.

Be brave. Be true.

A coffee table + reference book.

Friday is for Art

Describing perfectly who I am – and many others – I am sure. Today – after an emotional roller-coaster – and prise de conscience – I am back on track. I am renewing my determination to stay focussed on my lifelong mission: to sublimate pain with beauty, inspiration and good. I am not ducking from reality – I am affording myself the ‘space’ needed to be focussed.

Netdiver Mag schedule is moving to a Monday through Thursday timeline.

Fridays are for art projects.
