Twitter Link Roundup #107 – Small Business, Social Media, Design, Copywriting, Marketing And More Ross Kimbarovsky | October 20th, 2011

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image above shows a radical new camera – called the Lytro. This camera introduces a new camera technology – light-field photography. Conventional digital cameras use lenses to focus a subject. In doing so, light from only one direction reaches the sensor (for the portion of the image in-focus). The Lytro camera allows light from multiple directions to reach the sensor and the camera records all of this information. The result is that a user can focus on ANY part of the photo after the picture is taken. It looks like magic. More details in the Other section below.
