‘Mandate my ass!’
Thu, Nov 10th 2016 10:41a   Stuart McIntyre
Not much has changed in 35 years… Full lyrics (via azlyrics): Well, the first thing I want to say is: Mandate my ass! Because it seems as though we’ve been convinced that 26% of the registered voters, not even 26% of the American people, but 26% of the registered voters form a mandate or a landslide. 21% voted for Skippy and 3, 4% voted for somebody else who might have been running. But, oh yeah, I remember. In this year that we have now declared the year from Shogun to Reagan, I re

My musings on Microsoft Teams

Pramit Nairi writes a great post entitled ‘Only Microsoft could make Teams’, comparing the new Microsoft Teams solution to Slack. First, Slack: The thing with Slack is that using it doesn’t feel like work. The UI and the experience is designed to be as effortless as possible with everything feeling natural and human. From subtle things to the more overt, the service feels likable and encourages interaction and participation. Sure, it has its shortcomings — what software does

‘Transformer in chief’: The new chief digital officer
Mon, Nov 7th 2016 12:12p   Stuart McIntyre
McKinsey review the status of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO), and attempt to document the essential skills that are required for the role in 2016: In the alphabet soup that is today’s crowded C-suite, few roles attract as much attention as that of the chief digital officer, or CDO. While the position isn’t exactly new, what’s required of the average CDO is. Gone are the days of being responsible for introducing basic digital capabilities and perhaps piloting a handful of initiatives. The

PANO | LA

Absolutely stunning. (Make sure you go full screen and in full HD…) Shooting Pano LA has been the most ambitious, challenging, demanding, and rewarding project I have worked on to date. It was shot over a period of two years entirely in true panoramic form using two synced DSLR cameras side by side. The resulting panoramic timelapse footage comes in at a whopping 10K x 4K resolution when stitched. I did not shoot this film to achieve the extreme resolution. I shot it for the panoramic loo

Apple.com 1996-2016
Tue, Oct 25th 2016 12:29p   Stuart McIntyre
It is striking how those 20 years are a constant evolution of what Apple means as a brand – there are remarkably few missteps or failed products along the way. On a more personal level, I’m left reflecting how important Apple and it’s products have been to my own and my family’s lives over this timespan. It made me consider what a ‘sliding doors’ moment it was when Steve Jobs was invited back as interim CEO in July 1997 – how different our industry
