My final set of Coachella photos.
Thank you so much to for lending us a 200 mm F2.0 (which I used in most of these photos) and a 400 mm F2.8 too.
Extra special thanks to JBL/Harman (they make many of the world's speakers) for bringing me to Coachella and putting us up in a nice hotel room. Plus getting us a photo pass (cameras aren't allowed at Coachella, so if we didn't get a photo pass, we would never be able to make these photos).
Hope you enjoy. If you like these, check out 's photos. He has easily 10x more photos and better quality, too. I did learn some good stuff from him, but it's amazing when you shoot right next to a master photographer and then end up in his hotel room to watch how fast he processes photos (he brought a big Apple monitor down to Palm Desert to enable faster editing).
Great times and thanks to for arranging everything.
Don't miss my earlier photos from Coachella, here: https://plus.google.com/+Scobleizer/posts/Wkz1GxWBy5n

We All Need a Hug from an 8-Foot Monster Sometimes
And there's probably nothing better than a Sulley hug, as all kids know.
In the first film, Sulley was top scarer of Monsters, Inc., and was naturally afraid of humans, due to their rumored "toxic touch" that could kill the biggest monsters in an instant... until he met Boo, a human girl who found her way into the monster world and into the factory.
Sulley, who was initially hesitant, became Boo's protector and obtained a fatherly role to the human. Constantly worrying about her and protecting her from harm while at the same time unlocking the secrets that humans were not as deadly as rumored. Starting by treating Boo like a pet, he eventually grew to care for her, the attention drawing away from a jealous Mike.
Randall Boggs, Sulley's rival who also wants to be top scarer, tries to use Boo in an experiment to forcibly extract screams for the growing energy crisis that relies on their cries to provide, and risking his friendship with Mike, Sulley comes to her rescue and in the process discovers that a child's laughter is 10 times more powerful than scream.
Sometime after Mr. Waternoose, the CEO of Monsters, Inc., is arrested by the CDA, Sulley becomes the new CEO and changes the policy to obtain children's laughter instead, apparently turning the energy crisis around.
Sometime after the events of the film, Sulley announces Put That Thing Back Where It Came From Or So Help Me, a company play that stars Mike, who has also directed, written, and produced the play, in front of the audience, and he appears in the play as a co-star.

Be a Digital Dandelion
One of the key points from my keynote this morning at #icon14
Yes, you need to have great content and resources on your own site and on your owned platforms. That's the stalk of the dandelion.
But you also need your smarts and your expertise to exist in other places and other venues (like G+). Those are the seeds of the dandelion.
Dear Bibliophiles, Take This Test.
This definitely will help us all with self-diagnosis. I already knew the outcome, but it was good to see the results. As one who started I was sure this was one test I would ace. I did. :-)

Social Pros All-Stars: Jay Baer Talks to Marketing Smarts
Here are just a few highlights from our conversation:
1. More than half of the Social Pro All-Stars studied writing, English, or journalism, as opposed to marketing or business
2. Social entrepreneurs tend to have a different skill set than their corporate counterparts
3. Google+ has recaptured what used to make Twitter great, and Instagram is the modern-day postcard

Meet Sabita Malla, Glass Explorer and senior research officer for #EarthDay with Sabita as she explores how Glass can help in her mission to protect rhinos.
Sabita uses custom Field Notes Glassware, software that was developed by a Glass Explorer who wanted to help WWF cut in half the work required to manage field conservation efforts. Sabita’s team is one of five nonprofits exploring how Glass might amplify their impact as part of Giving through Glass, a program we launched a few months ago in partnership with : goo.gl/AT9obZ
We’re extending the program for another round starting today. Nonprofits can apply now through May 20 at g.co/givingthroughglass. Five nonprofits will win: Glass, a $25,000 grant, a trip to a Google office and a connection to Glass developers.
And if you’re a Glass developer who wants to partner with a nonprofit and code for impact, sign up now at goo.gl/IeRjnk.
