PressCamp 14: Cannondale Synapse

Cannodale’s Synapse

It’s not like we have anything against Cdale. It’s just however the demos align in a season, we haven’t spent much time on their bikes. So when I was meeting with them during PressCamp, I asked Bill their PR guy, what bike he thought I should ride. He said this one, the Synapse. Then rolled it outside for some photos.

Fork asymetrical, perhaps?

Do the front brakes pull that fork to the left?

I rode their Evo during the SRAM Hydro launch and as soon as the Synapse arrives, I’m on it. Jim told me it is one of his favs and I’ll want to know if the front brake pulls the fork to the left, how it does on the big hits, and what the all-day comfort is like.

Apple Kills Aperture and Our Workflow

Buh-bye Aperture it was for the most part nice working with you

Just as I slid the SD card into the slot to ingest another gig or so of photos, I heard from David Schloss that Apple killed Aperture. This is what he said after a call with Apple PR…

Today Apple killed Aperture, breaking a promise the company had made to professional photographers but also to the professional community at large. As someone that believed deeply when Apple said they would stand by their pro users, I’m disappointed but not surprised.

The poor Aperture team, who must have lobbied for the company to keep working on a tool that set the standard and remained head and shoulders above the competition. They’ve been working tirelessly to promote the Aperture workflow. Seeing their program die must have been especially hard.

Beware now, video folks. When Apple tells you that Pro video users are a core market and part of Apple’s mission, realize they said the same thing about photographers and photography

The dumbing down of Apple’s core professional tools will continue because the consumer market drives the company. Apple needs just to produce the core OS and hardware for the pros and let Adobe and others act as their software development team.

Now it’s time to figure out the logistics of moving massive piles of data to a lesser program and marching up a learning curve we are about seven years behind.

Impact being, we’ve got RAIDs full of photos running on Aperture workflows, including event photo booths and the photomapping we used to do before G+ did it automagically.

SXSW V2V: Mentoring Sessions

Earlier this year at the Gingerman

The photo they used for the programming…

Besides the riding and socializing next month with SXSW V2V in Vegas, I’m mentoring attendees. Now, what’s a bike-blogging, independent-mag-publishing, cyclist doing mentoring? I wondered that myself and I think they want me to talk about entrepreneurship, bringing products, and content to market? If not, I can talk all day about the sport, running your own business, and being in the space where the bike and tech meet.

If you’re attending the event, sign up, and ask me anything from 3 to 4 PM on Wednesday. And the day before, we can go for a ride.
