Fernanda is a really good photographer, but her knowledge about computers its limited to the apps she usually needs for her work, like Capture One and Lightroom. However, most of her advertising work is to deal with huge catalogs of clothing and accessories, each one needing multiple shots. While working with a single project is simple in terms of organization, working with thousands of different products with multiple angles can be a mess.
That’s why they use a long, and sometimes overwhelming, spreadsheet with all the SKUs and descriptions. Keeping an organized folder with all the photos of these products…

Humanity can not sustain more development without a critical approach to its existence, more specifically humans, as…

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has…
Any communication technology is based in two different but not exclusive concepts Synchronical and Asynchronous data transference.
Asynchronous communication is data transmitted intermittently rather than in a steady stream, being this the main difference with synchronical communication there is a profound impact on how our brains interact with both instances.
“An object/concept, that is present in cortex, has different representations in different parts of cortex. Different features of an object/concept are present as patterns in different cortical areas.”— Bertil Osterberg, The Information Processing Mechanism of the Brain ( PDF 1.3Mb )
Interface delegation is a common concept in programming languages like Cobol and Delphi. “Delegation refers to one object relying upon another to provide a specified set of functionalities” — (wikipedia), but in our physical world is way more common than we could imagine.
Lets see an example:
The Sky remote inherits features from the set-to-box device providing the user physical access to complete tasks and perform actions.
I like to improve things and make awesome stuff
