Jonathan Shaw - New Foto Scapes

The Internet, digital technology and social media have amplified our ability to connect and build communities, and sharing and communication of images has facilitated an exponential growth in picture capture and digital distribution. New Foto Scapes seeks to navigate the evolving topography surrounding the image in the twenty-first century; offering a focused eye on the contemporary creative author-curator and image-maker and on the possibilities afforded by an increasingly complex professional landscape. Jonathan Shaw advocates a new way of thinking about photographic production and education in a post-digital era. The book is smart, engaging and touches on almost all the aspects of the industry.


The Wisdom of Alan Watts in Four Thought-Provoking Animations. Perhaps no single person did more to popularize Zen Buddhism in the West than Alan Watts.

The Wisdom of Alan Watts in Four Thought-Provoking Animations

In a sense, Watts prepared U.S. culture for more traditionally Zen teachers like Soto priest Suzuki Roshi, whose lineage continues today, but Watts did not consider himself a Zen Buddhist. Or at least that’s what he tells us in the talk above, animated by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park. “I am not a Zen Buddhist,” he says, “I am not advocating Zen Buddhism, I am not trying to convert anyone to it. I have nothing to sell.” Instead, he calls himself “an entertainer.”

Bad news for people who hate Metro (or whatever Microsoft's calling it now): there's apparently no way for users to get around the tiled Start menu interface in Windows 8. According to ZDNet, there is no way to boot straight to the traditional Windows desktop in the final version of Windows 8--which is now shipping to manufacturers. In previous tech builds of the operating system there was a shortcut for going directly to the desktop.

While the tiled Start screen is supposed to make users' lives easier, it may do the exact opposite for some. For example, a power user who has no use for the simplified Metro-style apps of Windows 8, and who needs the more powerful traditional apps. Or a business user, whose work computers only need to run a cash register application. Get the Start Menu Back in Windows 8 with Classic Shell. Windows 8 no longer has the traditional Start Menu and seems to be the biggest complaint among Windows users. If you’re looking for a free and Open Source solution to bring back the Start Menu in Windows 8, you might want to check out Classic Shell. Not only does it bring back the Start functionality, it also allows you to customize the look and feel. Classic Shell for Windows 8 You can download Classic Shell from SourceForge.
