1. "What you do for a living is not be creative, what you do is ship," says bestselling author Seth Godin, arguing that we must quiet our fearful "lizard brains" to avoid sabotaging projects just before we finally finish them.

  3. Seth Godin (http://sethgodin.com) was our speaker at this month's CreativeMornings (http://creativemornings.com) themed "Backwards".

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

    Seth Godin has written fourteen books that have been translated into more than thirty languages. Every one has been a bestseller. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything.

    American Way Magazine calls him, "America's Greatest Marketer," and his blog is perhaps the most popular in the world written by a single individual. His latest book, We Are All Weird, calls for end of mass and for the beginning of offering people more choices, more interests and giving them more authority to operate in ways that reflect their own unique values, and Seth once again breaks the traditional publishing model by releasing it through The Domino Project. His recent Kickstarter for his newest book (The Icarus Deception out in January 2013) broke records for its size and the speed that it reached its goal.

    As an entrepreneur, he has founded dozens of companies, most of which failed. Yoyodyne, his first internet company, was funded by Flatiron and Softbank and acquired by Yahoo! in 1998. It pioneered the use of ethical direct mail online, something Seth calls Permission Marketing. He was VP of Direct Marketing at Yahoo! for a year.

    His latest company, Squidoo.com, is ranked among the top 125 sites in the US (by traffic) by Quantcast. It allows anyone (even you) to build a page about any topic you're passionate about. The site raises money for charity and pays royalties to its million plus members.

    The event was generously hosted by The New School (http://www.newschool.edu) in the beautiful Tishman Auditorium in Manhattan.

  4. I took around 8000 photos over 5 days throughout the North Shore Hawaii, Oahu.
    All photos and clips are available for purchase.
    This was my first time out using my Emotimo TB3 Black combined with the Dynamic Perception Stage One Dolly.
    I had so much fun exploring with different variations of 3 axis movements.
    Until the next one, thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy!

    Big thanks to Dynamic Perception and Emotimo for their amazing motion control gear.
