Lightt is visual storytelling 2.0
Check out www.lightt.com. Why? Because it is fun! Unlike other popular photo-driven social media platforms where you can make/ modify photo’s/ moments with your friends and followers, Lightt offers you a burst of 10 photo’s.
The 10 photo’s then are replayed very fast which gives you a stop-motion video capturing what you are doing right now.
Even your Ava is like that on Lightt. Very dynamic and it makes you want to take more pictures. Lightt calls them ‘highlights’ and that’s exactly what they are.
Imagine the business potential. How-to video’s made fun and easy. Try it, you will like it!
You will appreciate the warmth more if you’ve managed to defy the cold.
Als je wilt helpen
Kom je soms bedrogen uit
Als je je naasten verstikt
Komt niemand tot zijn recht
Loslaten is het devies
Alleen dan komt een ieder tot bloei
Kan ieder eigen keuzes maken
Eigen gevoel volgen
Om dat dan samen of alleen
Weer te kunnen delen
Vandaag staat er een interview met mij in het Financieel Dagblad. In de weekendbijlage FD Persoonlijk. Toch wel weer een mijlpaal waar ik trots op ben. Door de goede vragen van journaliste Karin Kuijpers (http://twitter.com/karinkuijpers) en fotografe Marie-Cecile Thijs (http://twitter.com/eMCT) is het een collage geworden van wat was en wat is. Wat de toekomst brengt zal mijn hart mij ingeven.
Lijkt ver weg
je kan het aanraken
Het voelt intens
het is thuiskomen
Waar is de boot?
ARMIN VAN BUREN
23rd of December I was granted access to the 53N8MIX party in Hotel Arena in Amsterdam to see our Dutch DJ Phenomenon. Best DJ in the world again in 2010.
Trance is the word, not exactly my favourite dance music, but, in good company of my beautiful wife and good friends.. who cares! Party time.
The set up was very professional, TV screens everywhere in the building, with view on the DJ booth and … the DJ. And there lies the problem.
The DJ booth was typical: central mixing panel, 2 CD-players on each side.
When the warm-up DJ was performing, he was using the decks intensively, CD’s in and out, mixing, pitching, effects, the works.
Then Armin his gear was set up: an Apple MacBook. Nothing wrong with that, to use a Laptop as music database. you still can perform: mixing, pitching, effects, the works.
What Armin probably did not realize, were the camera’s zooming in on the booth. What everybody could see is that he switched on CD-decks, switched them off, pushed buttons, turned dials, and all that WITHOUT CD’s. Headphone on-and-off.
Offcourse from the dancefloor nobody could see this, since the booth was higher up. Hands in the air, lots of Jesus moments (arms spread) and moving around smiling happily.
I am impressed that he could live with just playing from his MacBook and made it look like he was mixing live. The public loved it apparantly, so maybe that is the criterium, but I was disappointed. A prefab show is not fit for the No.1 DJ in the world.
