My dear child,

I can’t believe that tomorrow at this time my little girl will be a married woman. I look back on the last 24 years and I want to do it all over again. I know that can’t happen, but I do have my memories, at least. Read more…

Hey Apple: Regular People Have No Idea How To Manage Photos On Their iPhone

I’m serious, they don’t. They don’t know that they don’t, but they don’t. If you grab a co-workers iPhone and they have 2500 photos on the camera roll, then you know they don’t. They’ll just keep taking photos and assume “the cloud” or whatever is backing it up.

For a time, it is.

Manipulated Photographs, Manipulated Memories

memories

Photo manipulation is nearly as old, if not as old, as photography itself. It has been used in state propaganda, to unify nations, for aesthetic and creative expression, to generate fear, and the list goes on and on.

As technology advances, altering photographic images has become quite easy. This begs the question: do the images we see convey accurate information?

Memories, Photographs, and the Human Brain

memories

There has been a good deal written about the similarities of the camera to the eye as well as the computer to human memory. What I would like to do is clarify the uniqueness of the human brain from camera technology and at the same time show the similarities between brain function, photography and cognition.

App To Let You Preserve Your Life with a One-Second Video of Each Day

First, there was a competition, which suggested that one second of video could capture a unique, meaningful moment. Then a young woman from LA used roughly one second of footage per day to document a year in her life. And then finally, Cesar Kuriyama’s similar video documenting his frivolous year off work following his 30th birthday went viral.

Apparently, the idea of documenting each day of your life with a one-second video clip has taken off. And following a flurry of “I wanna do that!” comments, Kuriyama has decided to make the process that much easier for others wishing to follow in his and Madeline’s footsteps by creating the 1 Second Everyday app.

Microsoft Files Patent for Lifestreaming, Storing Your Memories in Its Cloud

Humans like preserving their memories. That’s one of the big reasons we take pictures. What if you didn’t need to actively do anything to preserve those memories? What if you could simply wear cameras that constantly capture photos and videos that are safely stored for your later viewing pleasure? With the rate at which technology — particularly storage technology — is increasing, we may soon find “lifestreaming” to be the next big thing.

Microsoft apparently thinks so, and wants a big piece of that pie. The company has filed a patent for “life streaming”, and hopes to one day be the data store for all your passively-recorded memories.

Adults Looking Back on School Portraits From Their Days of Youth

School Portrait is a project by documentary filmmaker and communications student Greg Ward, who asked a number of adults to show and share about their old school portraits. Ward writes,

Most people are embarrassed or find it funny to look back on their old school portraits. The photos where taken at a time when life was simple, school was fun and hairstyles where dictated by our parents.

Many years have passed since the photos were taken; physically they have all changed, but to what extent are they still the same people? In general, most people have had school photographs taken of themselves when they were younger. The photos are fantastic visual records of how people once were, however how often do we look back and reflect upon what we were like as kids? Sometimes in order to know where we are going in life, it helps to remember where we have been.
