How We Made “Slack WFH”

Dit project van Sandwich Video, een reclamefilmpje voor Slack, is echt de max. Hoe ze ook nog eens een professionele making of in mekaar boksen, dat is echt top. Ik kan daar echt warm van worden, van mensen creatief te zien werken.

Play Ball: MLB announces 2020 regular season

MLB.com:

A proposed 60-game regular-season schedule anticipated to begin on July 23 and 24.

Oh, man, wat kijk ik hiernaar uit! Ik denk dat een korter seizoen, 60 in plaats van 162 wedstrijden, sowieso niet slecht gaat zijn voor de sport in haar geheel.

Facebook’s Fatal Flaw?

Cal Newport:

When this platform shifted from connection to distraction it abdicated its greatest advantage: network effects. If Facebook’s main pitch is that it’s entertaining, it must then compete with everything else that’s entertaining.

Adobe Photoshop Camera Brings Real-Time Filters and AI to Photo Sharing

MacStories:

Photoshop Camera comes with several pre-installed filters, which Adobe calls Lenses, with additional ones available for download from the app’s built-in Lens Library. Some Lenses have been designed by Adobe, while others have been created by third-party photographers, and even musician Billie Eilish.

Het is zo’n beetje wat in Instagram en Snapchat ingebouwd zit, maar dan van Adobe. Wat een zotte wereld waar wij in leven, toch? Op een paar jaar tijd zijn foto’s veranderd van “dit is iets dat ik zag” naar “dit is iets wat ik creeërde”.

Donald Trump has praised the Chinese government over Tiananmen Square

Donald Trump in Playboy (1990) (via Daring Fireball):

When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak… as being spit on by the rest of the world.

Misschien moet onze bestuurlijke klasse maar eens duidelijk maken dat wij als westerse democratie spugen op wat zich op dit moment afspeelt in het hoofd en het handelen van Bunker Boy

Why are Africa’s coronavirus successes being overlooked?

Afua Hirsch in The Guardian:

But what has also happened is that many African nations, realising early on that large-scale, expensive testing and hospitalisation was not an option for the populations, had no choice but to take a more creative approach.

‘Mythic Quest: Quarantine’: 40 iPhones, $600K for Charity and a Cast and Crew Eager to Keep Going

De corona-aflevering van Mythic Quest (op Apple TV+) is het allerbeste dat ik dit jaar al gestreamd heb. The Hollywood Reporter deed een interview met de makers, die ook de hoofdrolspelers zijn, over hoe ze dat hebben aangepakt:

But our feeling was that when we’re done with this quarantine, people are not going to want to keep talking about it. They’ll be sick of it. So Rob had this idea, which was basically, “What if we just do something now, and then we can acknowledge it and get it out of the way so that when we do eventually return to the second season, we don’t have to have it be about the quarantine? It’ll just be post-quarantine.”

Heel het eerste seizoen van die serie is trouwens zwaar aan te raden:

What if You Don’t Want to Go Back to the Office?

The New York Times:

Any kind of flexibility is something that people are really, really ripe for, just some control over where and when they work.
