This week on TWiP we’re experimenting using a Google Hangout to discuss Yahoo layoffs and lawsuits, Instagram on Android, monitors for photographers, and an interview CJ Chilvers on minimalist photography.


TWiP Tests Out Google+!

Our Google+ experiment was a success, as evidenced by the audio file – even though Ron’s audio is a little gnarly. On next week’s show we will make the Hangout public, and record the video (as well as the audio) for later consumption right here on this site (and YouTube).
We record TWiP every week at 6pm Pacific, so be sure to circle us on Google+ to catch the show.


Hosts: Frederick Van Johnson, Martin Bailey, and Ron Brinkmann

Episode Overview:

This week, Yahoo announced more layoffs in it’s efforts to streamline and refocus itself.

Yahoo is also involved in several lawsuits with Facebook and we discuss how this might impact services like Flickr.

Instagram finally makes it’s way to the Android platform and that has ruffled the feathers of many iPhone users who don’t want Android users playing in their sandbox.

We also have a round-table discussion on things photographers should consider when shopping for a monitor.

And Frederick sits down for an interview with photographer CJ Chilvers to talk about minimalist photography.

Martin Bailey and Ron Brinkmann join Frederick Van Johnson to discuss these topics and more on this week’s episode of TWiP.
