I saw someone with a pocket camera yesterday and realized I hadn’t taken a photo with a camera other than my iPhone for what seems like forever.
I came across my old pocket film camera recently and had a similar reaction vis a vis digtial photography, including phone photos.
I discovered a frost-cover box in the back of our freezer and realized I’ve had film (remember the small little can things…?) there for oh…about 4 years. LOL
My first camera phone was a Sony Ericsson years ago. It took terrible photos, but it was such a novelty to take photos with a telephone! Now my iPhone is my only camera. Well, apart from the camera on my Galaxy Tab. And oh yes, there’s even a video camera on my iPod Nano! But I no longer have a dedicated camera. The only thing I miss is an optical zoom.
PS …And oh, I forgot. There’s a camera in my MacBook too. Come to think of it, I have cameras everywhere – except in a camera.
iAMDA.org rocks! Tell your friends! Register, create a group, post your ideas, and make sure you’re here in NYC Oct.22-25th.
I’m a former New Yorker and need an excuse to come back for a visit
Unfortunaly I can’t go to the NYC but I hope it to be a great sucess;
If you guys make one in the South America, you can be safe and sound that I’ll come…
Of course, a expect a lot of pics and vids from the NYC…
iamda…World Tour? someday, someday.
I am also a former New yorker, but unfortunately won’t be able to be there physically but my thoughts and heart will be present there and hope for success ,don’t know how And if I have time to send anything I’ve done which isn’t much in quantity .would love to see some pics of the event. Tchau ! And peace !
Hi all, I’ve been handing out 3X5’s of the cover page at IAMDA to all my friends.
It would be great for all members/participants to have a universal pre-formatted JPEG to print out and
distribute as we travel to the CON.
What do you think?
It’s funny you should say that Helene as this weekend, I figured out how to get the Israelis to stop building settlements on the West Bank! Abu Abbas said if the Israelis keep expanding settlements, they will leave the peace process.
He should have said the exact opposite!
He should have said, ”we want you to build as many settlements as your rich Jewish friends all over the world can afford.
We want those settlements to have the strongest foundations, built out of the best materials, with abundant water, and electricity. We want those settlements to have the best roads, schools, hospitals and recreational facilities. We want these things because when we get our state and all of you are removed from the West Bank, we’ll insist these settlements be turned over intact, and delivered to our most needy people.”
How fast do you think people would STOP the settlement?
I don’t think I could solve the Mideast problem myself, but if our board put their minds to it…………..In reply to - Helene Goldberg posted an update in the group MobileArtCon 2010 : Hi all, I’m set to teach an artist forum on mixing apps, but I’d rather make this a panel and team up with others of you who do it in different ways or use different apps.

There is one webcasting station in one of the classrooms and we are attempting to establish at least one more that can be employed simultaneously.
Awesome David! we’ve got great stuff planned and hopefully some surprizes!!!
Glad you can be here.
Patricio is unable to attend the conference in either NYC or the Cisco feed from London, but we are working to ensure the great Patricio is skyped into our conference at some point to make some live art. NYU ITP has many large screen terminals scattered around to skype from. There is enough bandwidth to allow for as many folks as possible to be using video iChat to some artist who cannot be in actual attendance. We just need help organizing these kinds of things and time is running short……
How could I forget Matthew! Congrats to him too!In reply to - Roberta Barbarić posted an update: Google translation with a little help from me. There might still be some mistakes.

How great is that! Thank you so much Roberta for bringing all of us into your world. I just wish I could have been there…….Congrats to Cedric, Jonathon and Benj for their success!
Roberta, you are getting so much experience at this, come speak in NYC!

Thank you dear Roberta for promoting the mobile art movement, educating people and including all your Flickr friends in the show. Send pictures!!!!!
CiaoIn reply to - Roberta Barbarić posted an update: Festival of Pocket Art is opening on 12th of August here in Mostar. Many of you are participating. Thank you so much. The Judges will have really hard time with choosing the winners for our category. There are also mobile phone photography, film and SMS poetry categories. But in our category [...] · View
I’d like to try to get you guys connected to the Printmaking Dept. at NYU.
They might really enjoy participating in this conference and for us it’s a win-win situation. We need Kara to ask George at nyu, ”who’s da man?” to talk to???In reply to - Christine Finkelson posted an update in the group MobileArtCon 2010 : Hi All. Sandy Schmidt and I are doing a forum on printing at the conference. If you have any questions,simple or complicated, regarding printing, we’d love to hear them. We will try and address/ incorporate these questions at our forum. We’re not experts but have some advanced [...] · View
iAMDA is an international organization now, without chapters, just the web….we appreciate your offer of help in organization and right now just need folks like yourself to get the word out about us to like-minded groups. Fundraising? sure! you are in the belly of the beast. Fundraising for our organization in Silicon Valley would be like fundraising for the ”United Jewish Appeal” in the 5 towns! (Long Island, NY/Jewish)
You have the web site with a page for donations or high-profile sponsorships are still available for the conference.
That would be a great help!
I couldn’t afford to be a starving artist! Married w/2 kids & 2 cats meant a lot of mouths to feed. I was fortunate to find a freelance job that I love that I’ve averaged 2 1/2 days of work /week for the last 30 years.
The rest of the time, I make art. Not quite the starving artist but it works for me, and I’ve created enough self-satisfying art to last 2 lifetimes. If others dig it, great, if not……….everybody still eats.In reply to - Leo Tomkow posted an update in the group The Art of the Deal – Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century – the process of innovating the dynamics : A starving artist is an artist who sacrifices material well-being in order to focus on their artwork. They typically live on minimum expenses, either for a lack of business or because [...] · View
This week was a good one for iAMDA.
The company Autodesk is on board, sponsoring our Sunday evening closing event/ exhibition. We presume they will present their app at some point in the conference, exact time TBD.
Luis, It has always been my goal to make everything I do international, the app, the book, and iAMDA if I have anything to say about it. Don’t despair! I have faith in the Spanish iPhone artists mafia and that the powerful work streaming from your iDevices and the work coming from almost every continent is the glue that binds this movement together.In reply to - Luis Peso posted an update in the group DREAMS: My dream is to do the IAMDA truly International. I mean, please work on not keeping this wonderful movement closed to the States area. The impact this plattform is having in the States (e.g helped by The Newyorker) is not what we have in the rest of the [...] · View
I spoke to John Derry on the phone yesterday. What a gentleman! He loved what we were doing and said if he wasn’t already speaking in California for Adobe that weekend, he’d have been here with us, speaking and participating. We just have to get to him earlier, and book him for next year’s conference. For those who don’t know him, John Derry was the creator of Painter in the early ’90’s and guided this Natural Media Painting application through all the different companies that have ”owned it” since then. His famous quote, ”It’s all about the brushes, stupid” rings true today as the mobile art community is always looking for a new tool to put in the ’ole app toolbox. I hope that John joins our organization, as his contribution to the dialog with app developers would be invaluable.In reply to - Valerie Beeby posted an update in the group Guest Speaker : How about Marco Bucci, an inspiring traditional painter? He got fascinated by painting on Nintendo DS and iPod Touch at the end of last year. Scroll down at his blog: http://marcobucci.blogspot.com/ Another thought might be John Derry, one of the main developers of the original Corel Painter. He [...] · View
