Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Thank you for leaving behind what you did.
‘Fahrenheit 451’ Author Ray Bradbury Dies At 91
More than half the workers of the world do business in the informal, or shadow, economy—selling legal products in a quasilegal way, or, like the owner of that New York liquor store, selling quasi-legal products in a legal way—and their work is worth more than USD 10 trillion each year. For much of the planet, the global informal economy has become a dynamic and mobile network of ingenuity involving every type of business, from street merchants to mega-corporations.
This chain also includes a technological feedback loop. For instance, Chinese firms have started producing phones that fit two SIM cards simultaneously because African customers ask for them.— Robert Neuwirth (PopTech 2011, 2005) Shadow Goods, Makeshift: The Mobility Issue (via poptech)
Me: Here are the photographs from the shoot yesterday
Client: Nice shots - I like this one from behind the man. Can you just flip the image so we can see his face and not the back of his head?
Me: You want me to turn him around in the photograph so you can see his face?
Client: Yes - and maybe we can make him black. Do you have Photoshop?
