  1. » Learning Styles: The Cognitive Side of Content Johnny Holland – It’s all about interaction » Blog Archive
    We learn through our verbal, mind visual, apoplexy and kinesthetic senses, and our memories are encoded in these different formats.

  3. The Self-Absorbing Man: Captain America: The First Movie Poster
    To prove I was up to the task, I did a Captain America poster "on spec" (which was later used as the cover to a movie tie-in comic).

  7. Final Cut Pro X: What’s Missing for Some Pros – Creative COW
    So yesterday was met with the news that Final Cut Pro X was finally available and like someone waiting outside the famous PT Barnum museum in New York City, I plunked down my $299 to download the software and ensure that the information I had gotten over the past few months was correct.

  8. Final Cut Pro X Or Really iMovie Pro?
    Apple introduced Final Cut Pro X earlier this week with the tag line “Everything just changed in post.” I guess it depends on what you mean by the word ‘changed’.

One Academy Award-winning editor said he was “blown away” by the modern and fast software that let’s you focus on telling your story without worrying about the technical details. Now that it’s released, many critics and early Final Cut Pro X downloaders are telling a different story. Some are even suggesting they will jump ship from what many are calling iMovie Pro or much worse.

  15. Lytro Launches to Transform Photography with $50M in Venture Funds (TCTV)

This is the company that jaded, cranky, rap-lyric quoting investor Ben Horowitz says, “blew my brains to bits.”
