Blogs might have fallen out of fashion a touch, due to the onslaught of social networks, but there's something about having a space that's properly yours, potentially free from the distractions of a billion adverts and countless competing status updates.

Making Music - 74 Creative Strategies for Producers We’ve all been there: opening a new Live Set, pondering the blank slate of an empty Session View window, wondering how to begin. Or, not knowing how to get from that first spark of inspiration to a finished piece of music. The fact is, despite all the music tools and technology at our disposal nowadays, making music remains as difficult as ever. While the author, Dennis DeSantis, is Ableton’s Head of Documentation, the book is not an expanded Live user’s manual. Making Music is divided into three sections, the first of which deals with problems (and solutions) at the beginning stages of the music-making process. King Britt I've always been attracted to the way Cage and Eno use limitations and parameters as a way to push the creative flow. So, when starting a project, I first think of the palette I wish to use to represent the sound I want to capture. "I rely on randomness to create my own samples and loops." For more on this topic, see the Arbitrary Constraints chapter in the book. Kyoka

Medium Notre avis sur les éditeurs de site Internet 2015 C’est une question très légitime, évidemment. Le problème fondamental réside dans le fait que, généralement, les avis sont financés par des affiliations. Par conséquent, certaines personnes vont donner une note à un éditeur en se basant sur la commission qu’il lui apporte plutôt que sur ses véritables mérites. Ce genre de pratiques douteuses permet malheureusement à des auteurs de sites d’exercer une forte pression sur les éditeurs en leur disant : « soit vous augmentez de x % les recettes que vous nous apportez, soit vous disparaissez de notre site. » Pour des raisons qui nous sont complètement inconnues, certains éditeurs ont eux aussi adopté cette façon de faire des affaires. Que vous nous considériez ou non comme un site de confiance, voici quelques conseils pour vous permettre d’identifier facilement les avis douteux : Pouvez-vous trouver facilement qui administre le site (par exemple en visitant la page « Qui sommes-nous ?

Designing and marketing an appealing online course on A few years ago I came across one challenging statement on a LinkedIn forum. The participants were discussing the process of online teaching – how to get started, how to scale it, what platforms to use for webinars or online lessons, etc. They went back and forth talking about the advantages and disadvantages of using Skype and other similar applications, and then somebody posted a comment that etched into my memory and made me acutely aware of where I was and where I had to be. The person said something like, “Limiting yourself to teaching only skype lessons is a dead-end street. You need to have something more if you would like to scale your business.” I know a lot of online teachers who have been entertaining the idea of designing online courses, but they may lack a bit of confidence and some practical information on whether or not this venture is worth the effort. How does one get started? What reservations did I have? Why did I choose one particular platform? Start small.Start free.

The journey approach to change A book title that reassures me is The Myth of Laziness. Author Mel Levine argues that when children fail at school, it’s unlikely that laziness is the cause. More often they’re bumping into a specific difficulty that blocks progress. It’s hard for any child to stay motivated if they keep failing at something. But if you can find out what their difficulty is, and attend to that, you can often help them become re-engaged. I find this helpful when I’m struggling. A lesson I take from Dr Levine’s work is that our responses to failure are powerfully influenced by the story we tell ourselves about its cause. “If you’ve ever felt blocked by the thought ‘I could never do that’, imagine what might happen if you refused to be held back and took the first steps” A breakthrough with my writing came when a journalist friend told me about the stage of disbelief she experiences. This ‘growth mindset’ can be applied to the challenge of creating positive news – both in our lives and in the world.
