OpenCourseWare History[edit] The OpenCourseWare movement started in 1999 when the University of Tübingen in Germany published videos of lectures online for its timms initiative (Tübinger Internet Multimedia Server).[1] The OCW movement only took off, however, with the launch of MIT OpenCourseWare at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Open Learning Initiative at Carnegie Mellon University[2] in October 2002. The movement was soon reinforced by the launch of similar projects at Yale, the University of Michigan, and the University of California Berkeley.

How to Get the Best Color Out of Your Photos @bigbill25: Yes I know, that ergs me as well, but the idea that those are "primary" colors seems to be embedded in a persons mind by those darn 3rd grade art teachers. I guess we will just have to accept the fact that the general populace is mis-informed. @bigbill25: Actually, thats not entirely true. It depends on what you use for material.

How to Take Better Pictures with Your Smartphone's Camera Bah. My iPhone 4 takes noticeably better pictures than my Nikon Coolpix L15 (or whatever it was) point and shoot - or at least it would, if my girlfriend hadn't dropped and broken the latter while using it in Madrid a couple weeks back. But seriously, even WITH masking tape over the flash - MASKING TAPE!

The Best Photography Apps for Your iPhone @msg001: I'm looking for some also. I've been playing around with "SuperCamera All-in-one" by BlueOnionSoft. It adds a few nice at-time-of-shooting features like an on-screen grid to line-up images and an "anti-shake" auto-shutter that waits for the camera to stop shaking before the shutter fires, hopefully reducing blur. It also includes post-shooting image enhancements and filtering. Most of that stuff can be done with pretty much any other post-shooting app, onboard or desktop, but it is nice to be able to stay in the app to do it.

Introductions - Christine Wilson Sometimes you just never know when you will find a persons work that really appeals to you. I have known Christine Wilson, or know of her work for a while, but recently when I started my Flickr account, she started following me. As you do when someone follows you, especially if you know them, you go and take a look at their Flickr page, and as soon as I saw it, I thought, I must see if Christine will give me permission to feature her work here on one of my Introductions posts. Which, I think you will have gathered she has. One of the first things you notice about her work, on her blog, on her Flickr page, and various other places, is that it is all black and white. As I went through much of her work I think I only saw a couple of colour images and they did seem out of place among all the monochrome work.
