The one thing that all these services/apps lack (aside from OS X Photos app) is the ability to capture/display video. I am more and more interested in various motion aspects of design and things I discover and being able to archive that is more important to me now than just screenshots.
Gonna blow your mind but most folks still use AE for micro-animations :D https://code.facebook.com/posts/354469174916519/keyframes-delivering-scalable-high-quality-animations-to-mobile-clients/
Long time Maurice! Good eye! Yeah that's an Eames lounge chair and ottoman. My reading/laptop chair :)
Big fan of my Herman Miller Embody! Have had it for probably 5-6 years at this point: https://paulstamatiou.com/stuff-i-use/ The only advice I have is don't get a bright color.. my jeans have started to turn this seat bluish. There's a company that can pick it up and give it a thorough shampooing/cleaning but around $400.
My site is a bit simpler than most (all flat files, based on Jekyll) and therefore don't need any dynamic stuff or database, and have been hosting directly on S3 with Cloudfront the last few years and have been enjoying it. When I made the switch readers of my site in other countries reached out to say how much faster it was for them. https://paulstamatiou.com/hosting-on-amazon-s3-with-cloudfront/
Hey folks, over the past few years I've been making more and more intricate photostories to document my travels. All custom designed/developed myself. Earlier this year I spent a month in New Zealand on a solo trip and have been slowly making photosets for each part of the trip. Here's the third photoset (out of likely 10+). And here's a summary video of the highlights of the whole trip: http://youtube.com/watch?v=14brbxKgPKU
Working on the next photoset of the New Zealand collection I just started last week with this: http://paulstamatiou.com/photos/new-zealand/auckland/ I traveled through New Zealand on a solo trip for about a month earlier in the year, taking some 11,000+ shots and videos (about 850GB total) and will be making detailed photosets for each city along the way. I finally finished the first one, but have probably 10+ left.. this will take some time :) This was a round-up of the whole trip I made a while ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14brbxKgPKU&feature=youtu.be
I love my RasPi too http://paulstamatiou.com/getting-started-raspberry-pi/) but not sure what this has to do with designer news? Sorry to be a debbie downer. :/
I was looking for a long time.. ended up getting a dell 5K monitor, but it's a messy solution requiring 2 cables and the most updated Macbook Pro otherwise it drops frames and feels laggy. It's also a pretty big monitor (thickness/base etc). I ended up returning it (it also arrived with slightly cracked glass) and ended up buying a 5k 27" iMac. Much much happier. Though I know this isn't a good option for folks that only have one computer and need it to be a laptop.
