Wordpress May Be Taking Over the World, here’s why | GEGATT

WordPress May Be Taking Over the World, here’s why | GEGATT

wordpressChances are if you have been on the internet for any length of time longer than ten minutes you’ve encountered a WordPress website. WordPress is, and at its core remains, a blogging platform. Blog is a forcing together of WEB and LOG thereby allowing the every man, woman, and paid adult escort to have a place where she can share all her dirty (or REALLY boring) secrets. Wonderful, right?

Moon Animate, Make-Up! 200+ Artists Re-Animate a Sailor Moon Episode

The world is still riding the wave of excitement that is the Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Moon Crystal. Part of the hype comes from Sailor Moon Crystal’s animation style re-do, which fits in much better with the aesthetics of the show.

The latest tribute to the classic 90s show comes from Moon Animate, Make-Up, a crowd-sourced collaborative effort of over 200 artists. From October 2013 to July 2014,…

Realism in Film is Killing Animation

Realism in Film is Killing Animation

Realism in cinema today is a problem. Most people feel that in order for a film to be judged as “good” it must be “realistic.” This notion is one hundred percent false. Our fixation on realism leads to the inane nitpicking of films, and eventually to the collapse of the good movie. We read films like computers: it’s all or nothing. A film is wholly good or wholly bad with little in between.

Wikipedia Democratizes Information, find out why | GEGATT

Wikipedia Democratizes Information, find out why | GEGATT

Wikipedia Official Logo

Jimmy Wales decided, one day, to democratize the way we interface with repositories of information. Prior to Wikipedia, when you wanted to know something on a specific subject, your choices were to do web searches, buy books, or purchase access to a paid encyclopedia. The outcome was a less-than-desirable way to find out everything you ever, really wanted to know about…

Hey guys! How’s it going?! Essie Cosplay here with pictures from Connecticon. The CosView photographer, Tony, and I hit the scene Friday and Saturday this last weekend to find out all the biz on the cosplay. There was a lot of talent! I couldn’t believe some of the things I saw. Thankfully, the floor wasn’t over crowded with the AOT craze like it was at Anime Boston and we found a vast array of costumes to shoot. (I like AOT but when you see 5 bazillion Levi’s at once, it’s a little much.) Go ahead and pop on down the page and see if you catch yourself.

We will see you when we hit Boston Comic Con in August!!

And if you want to get a personal photoshoot/interview, don’t forget to contact me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/essiecosplay

Later!

Facebook may be like drinking to Kool-aid, find out why | GEGATT

Facebook may be like drinking to Kool-aid, find out why | GEGATT

There was a time, not so long ago, when Facebook didn’t exist and when it did, it was called The Facebook. Based on the simple premise, used by Harvard houses, of a virtual directory with pictures, Facebook was Zuckerberg’s answer to other people’s ideas. Because, let’s face it, anyone who has on his business card “That’s CEO bitches” isn’t all that creative and doesn’t get the nuance of original…

What Everybody Ought to Know About Google | GEGATT

What Everybody Ought to Know About Google | GEGATT

Prior to Google there was … uh … I think I used Alta Vista, primarily. Athough there were a lot of other search engines. The business model followed a bounty model where you could, literally, pay the search engine to place your website or content at number 1. I liked Alta Vista even if it was one of many options that effectively did the same thing and offered the same information.
