Le genie de Spielberg c'est decacher des plan séquences de moins de 2 minutes dans chacun de ses films. Juste assez pour t'impliquer dans l'action, mais pas suffisamment pour que le brio de la technique ne prenne le pas sur la narration.
Un thread à dérouler comme une pellicule👇
Les dents de la mer - 1975 - (1m43)
Parfait moyen de comprendre ce qui va être le noeud du problème avec le maire dans le déni qui isole Brody au milieu de l'eau qu'il déteste.
Les aventuriers de l'arche perdue - 1981 - (1m26)
Incroyable manière de nous plonger dans l'univers de Marion et de construire le gag final.

In the #ReadyPlayerOne movie-The
Object is to NOT win the game at the very end of the movie, right?. Where does he find the very first easter egg ever created in A game?
The Invisible DOT?

I literally just posted last week about foods being altered and what it's doing to people & how it may just be causing the spike in people changing genders. Along with many other factors of course too. Then I post GOOD BURGER movie. They then say stop eating this food or that
Food for whatever reason. All to just confuse people. Is Biden & Harris telling people to stop eating foods that are being corrupted/altered or are they sending out Subliminal comms. So many "Anons" call Evil "Stupid", yeah, they have made stupid decisions in life but Evil
People in this world are far from stupid. They are doing eveything and anything they can to confuse all of you and drive you away from the truth.
All any of you can do is be still, don't feed into any of it (little to none listen anyways) and continue waiting for the truth to

(1) Recently, #NFTs have gained *a lot* of attention from not just crypto-evangelists, but more mainstream outlets. @enjin are a leader in the #NFT space, but what make their approach and solutions to #trueownership of digital assets so special? A thread! #enj $ENJ #evENJelist
(2) First thing's first; if you're still not 100% sure on *what* NFTs actually are (and why they matter and hold value), it's worth reading these handy-dandy beginner's guide that I wrote. #enj $ENJ

enj.in/nft-guide
(2a) NB: While @enjin's heritage is in gaming, it's important to note that $ENJ-backed #NFTs span a wide variety of usecases: @Azure use them to encourage and reward developer engagement enjin.io/powered-by-enj… and @binance use them for digital community collectibles

Bought & read #ReadyPlayerTwo this weekend and real talk it was not great. @laura_hudson has a great thread about it here, but THIS is the most egregious misstep (okay, so not really, but for those of us who wear a @tigers cap each day, Magnum NEVER wore a @Lions cap) (1/8) Image
Also, I bought this 'cos my 12 year old read #ReadyPlayerOne & fell in love. I read this to see if he could read this one and NOPE. Lots of cussin, lots of discussion of virtual orgies and cockblocking and it's in no way appropriate for the under 13 set which sucks for him (2/8)
But to be fair, maybe good? #ReadyPlayerTwo is in no way as exciting / addictive as its predecessor. I felt no joy when reading it, not even remotely interested in seeking out the games, movies or music (except for the Prince discography, to be fair) detailed in the book (3/8)

In wake of this I have to admit that I was pretty close in doing that on my own. More details:

In case you haven't heard, #ZAO is a Chinese app which completely blew up since Friday. Best application of 'Deepfake'-style AI facial replacement I've ever seen.

Here's an example of me as DiCaprio (generated in under 8 secs from that one photo in the thumbnail) 🤯
It's already under a lot of fire for user privacy protection under their terms and conditions. So consider this my sacrifice to demonstrate so you don't have to give up your portrait identity rights 😅
It’s clear that #ZAO isn’t really going for "accuracy" per se, but rather a "subjective" good looking result. Similar to a beauty cam, it retains facial structure of the original actors, so the cherry picked results more or less always looks good and encourages users to share.

1/ Finally saw Ready Player One in Mumbai. It was even trashier than I expected. I mean, how could the world design be SO unimaginative?
2/ Nothing felt fresh, nothing breathed LIFE in it. Not even the damn headset design! Like, seriously?!? I mean how in hell anyone would think that in 30 years VR devices will still look like glorified ski goggles?!?!?
3/ On a more serious note, I feel that RPO, in polar opposite to #BlackPanther, just closes down our imagination rather than opens it up in terms of what we can be as human society & what is the reality we can create for future generations.

I recently had my 24th anniversary at work so I thought I'd share some of my best Microsoft memories over the next year.

#MicrosoftLife
I started working for Microsoft Consulting Services on Feb 14, 1994(Valentines Day) in Minneapolis. I went onsite with a customer that same day, getting introduced around. I also setup my first "laptop"-a Compaq Portable 386. "Weighs less than 20 pounds!"

This was also when the excitement for Windows 95 was just starting. Here's one of first free t-shirts I ever received. For a day or 2 I worked the booth at the Minnesota State Fair, demonstrating Win95 to fair goers.

Just saw the @ReadyPlayerOne movie and want to know how it stacks up against the reality of virtual reality? This thread that breaks down what RP1 gets right, not-quite-right, and flat-out wrong about the future of #VR, immersion, & the metaverse.
We’ll also examine the tech #ReadyPlayerOne left out altogether. After all, the film is set in 2045, and given the exponential rate of technological advancement, 27 years will likely yield some dramatic changes in society.
There are a few articles that have pointed out some of the basics, but having worked in the industry for 4+ years, I want to paint a fuller picture of our impending reality, with RP1 as the jumping-off point.

Hi, @constancegrady - just read the article. First of all, thank you. It's among the more evenhanded approaches to #ReadyPlayerOne than I've seen around. Highly recommended. Just wanted to post my reaction, if you're willing to humor me. /1
Let me mention before I start that your opinion of the book pretty much matches my own -- pretty standard white male nerd power fantasy with a cyberpunk flair. Enjoyed it for what it was. I still liked it better when it was called "Snow Crash." /2
But it's the "white male nerd" part of it that's the real problem here, right? Because if I'm reading your article correctly -- it seems you're saying that the entire figure of the "white male nerd" has been irrevocably tainted by Gamergate. Is that a fair summation? /3
