Living in a Post-Geographical World: Address is Approximate (Hat Tip to Steve Jobs)

My family has been travelling since the 1670′s when two Du Toit brothers left France as part of the great French Huguenot movement. They went to Holland, which had recently begun colonising the tip of Africa. Recognising opportunity, they led a movement of settlers and arrived in Cape Town in 1676. The result was a wonderfully rich cultural mix (and some great wines) in the Franschoek region of the western cape of South Africa.

Fast forward a few hundred years and we dispersed to the UK and Australia when crime became all too pervasive. I’ve since also lived in the United States, and regard Sydney and Palo Alto as the closest things to home.

Like many others who have had similar experiences I consider myself post-geographical. It’s not where I am physically that matters, but what my mindset is, who I am interacting with and what I am aiming to achieve.

That’s why this video by Tom Jenkins resonates so much with me.

I love the vision he portrays and his message also talks to what Steve Jobs said many years ago in an interview, namely that the world we live in is made up of man-made constructs and constraints. That the people who created them are no smarter than you are and once you realise this you need never be constrained by them – create your own world, wherever you are!

Pixels: Invading Your World

Sometimes it’s great to just take some time out. Do something random, or do nothing at all.

In that vein, this beautiful video by Patrick Jean has no real meaning (to me at least), but is worth the time …

Thanks to Bill Daul from NextNow for pointing this work out!

Photobucket Expands Features With Customized Themes And Advanced Organizer

Recognizing that photos and videos are how we keep and share the most important moments in our lives, Fox Interactive Media-owned photo and video sharing site Photobucket has taken another step towards making the sharing of memories even more personal and entertaining.

The site’s 46 million unique users worldwide will be able to make use of new album design themes and a new photo and video organizer.

With the themes feature, users can choose from pre-made themes in a range of categories (art, entertainment, holidays, nature, sports etc). Artists will be able to provide pre-made themes for their fans – currently Tokio Hotel has a custom theme on the site. In addition, users can create custom themes of their own.

Themes can be added to both individual and group albums and will be viewable by visitors to an entire album, individual photo or video and when photos or albums are shared. Group albums provide access for multiple people to share and view photos in a single album.

The new organizer allows users to add titles, descriptions and tags to photos and videos in bulk, customize the sort order of media in albums, organize content via drag and drop and search through albums based on descriptions, tag contents or titles.
