Experiment more

November 2, 2016

Try new things with what you already have.

In 2006 I wrote a post about taking full advantage of the things you already own. Knowing every feature of your SLR or Bluray player or getting to know the features of your most-used software.

In this post I want to encourage you to try something completely new with something you use regularly. Experiment. Push. Flip over. Pull. Spin. Tilt.

This is how panoselfies were born. And look what happened there. Many people have a pano mode on their phone. How many point it at themselves?

Experimentation has led to some game-changing discoveries. Heat. Gmail. Electricity.

Take something you use every day. Take a good long look at it. Now, try something completely different with it. It might be fun. And, maybe, just maybe, it might be useful.
