Today's tools are Unprecedented
Today's tools are incomprehensible. One person, one work area, two computers, five monitors, television, webcam, three printers, label printers, studio speakers, stunning bandwidth, 6 cores, 12 threads, gigabyte Ethernet, four IP phones. Typical day allows for video, audio, spreadsheets, photoshop, illustrator, and more. The previous output of 100's of people is now at my disposal. Unprecedented.
Assignment: This week creative Framers, we are celebrating our unique tool-using abilities. Human beings are the only species on this planet that use and make tools, except some chimpanzees and bonobos of course. Our ancestors not only started using rocks as tools but they also used other rocks to shape these tools in the way that they needed them to be. Since then, we have come a long way and there are tools today for just about every task you can think of. There are literally a million examples of tools that you can shoot from surgery tools to measuring tools to drawing tools to electrical tools. You will get extra credit on top of the extra credit if you photograph a truly unique or strange tool this week!
