I remember that one day when my whole city got together as one. Black, white, pastors, youth, elderly, and disabled. We marched for greatness, we marched for justice, we marched for love, we marched for peace. We made history, and the entire world showed us love. We proved so many non-believers wrong. Lets not stop here though. This is just the beginning. ShowLoveShareLove. 
FOREVER MIKE BROWN! Keep smiling over us.

"I couldn’t sit at home and watch this unfold on the internet anymore. Walking down to W. Florissant, we were met by the police who were blocking off the street threatening to arrest all who did not leave the premises. We could see the SWAT Team approaching the protesters as they pushed us down the street. Fought back tears in utter disbelief the entire time. Still hopeful that some good will come from all this"  #dontshoot

One thing you will hear often in business is “do one thing and do it well.” It’s true. You may also hear something about picking a target market. That is definitely true as well. But UX actually works the opposite way.

Doing UX for everyone is easy. Selling to everyone is difficult.

“Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough.”

Quick tip for things to do immediately post-interview:

When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.

Read through for the gear This American Life uses and its editing process.

Let me start by going back about a 18 months… After a couple years of “job hopping” and trying to find the “right thing” for me, I had finally landed at a creative recruiting and staffing company. After 3, maybe 4 months of what I consider to be the most stressful, frustrating working experience…

Let me be blunt: Stock photography needs to die. In his 1946 essay “Politics and the English Language,” George Orwell argued that clichéd language produces clichéd thinking. Using a stale image, as he’d put it, “makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.” Stock photography imprisons us in the same cognitive jail. Its intentionally bland images are designed to be usable in many vaguely defined situations. This produces wretched photography for the same reason Hallmark cards produce wretched poetry. We live in a visual world, communicating and thinking in pictures. When we use stock photos, we think in clichés.

[…]

The true cure for stock photography is inside your camera phone.

Clive Thompson's spot-on, important Wired article on ending the tyranny of stock photos, which could be said to hold for visual culture that aphorisms do for intellectual culture.

Thompson is the author of the excellent Smarter Than You Think: How Technology is Changing Our Minds for the Better.
