Welcome to the DS Curatorium. Enter at your own peril.
This experiment in content curation has multiple goals, and we would be grateful for any feedback about them.
The idea is to provide a set of links to articles, videos or other forms of content we have found to be inspiring, useful or fun during the week and to publish that just before the week-end in order to make sure we ruin all social life for you during that holiest of family times. You’re welcome. It recognises that other authors, while not being anywhere near as clever as us, do have the odd thing or three to say that might elevate the photographic community as a whole (insert silly grin).
So, during the week, we DS contributors find and save a few documents that we think can provide value to readers and publish them with some form of small commentary, at a time when we think you have the most free time to consume them and, hopefully, benefit.
This first instalment comes with 4 questions attached :
1 : Like the idea?
It’s OK if you hate it, just let us know. It’s even better if you love it. Just let us know 😉 We’ll only continue this if you say you like it and comment on it like it was yesterday footie (that’s soccer, but cricket, NBA, baseball, football from the colonies and Australian rules footy – if you’re man enough – all apply equally well) match!
2: Future topics?
Are there any topics would you might like to see covered more than (exhibitions, contests, techniques, philosophy, gear …) We’ll do our best, providing news oblige, to spotlight those.
3 : Collaborative buddies, youz & us?
You know what’s better than letting us know what you’d enjoy most ? Send us the links (the contact button is in the top menu). We can’t promise everything will get through to the final article, if ever there’s a submission deluge or if your suggestions breach our very strict rules for effing political correctness. But we’ll do our best. Particularly if your comment about the link makes us smile 🙂 Beware, you will be quoted and publicly identified as the culprit!
4 : The end of the Monday Post? Or a vitamin complement?
In the beginning there was the Monday Post and the Monday Post was with Paul. The intention was to comment on some news and get the week started with some interesting thinking. News ain’t always interesting, though. So, although we try to keep the MP on thought-worthy topics, it is now rarely linked to recent news. So, we’re thinking of only publish an MP when news of an interesting enough nature has provided a worthy opportunity, and make this Week Link initiative our only regular post. That’s one idea for the future of the MP, but yours are most welcome before we come to a final conclusion.
Here come the links (my curation, so not that much in the way of gear, but next episodes will vary according to your input) :
Oh, and, ever so offtopically, May the 4th be with you ! Could the Millenium Falcon really fly ? Of course it could !!! Duh …
So there you have it! If we’ve wasted less than an hour of your time or haven’t elevated your spirits and desire to get out and photograph, we’ve failed. Tell us how and why and we’ll make both better and worse for you!
