    I'm not sure who the video is mocking, because nobody uses Instagram this seriously.

    And wow, taking photographs with the iPad in public looks really strange.

    I just got crazy vision in my head: to put dark cloth over head while using iPad like when using large format cameras :surprised:

    I think, sometimes committing a crime is ok.

    Ah photographic masturbation. I'm sure HCB would have his favorite filter.

    It'd never work; everything would appear the right way up…

    Is that for real or is that a parody?

    I think some of you really do not realize its a parody! That's almost funnier than the vid!

    Most fun of all, is that this one isn't a parody:

    Great product, but this device is sometimes difficult to see when the sun is shining on the screen. I know how to improve that, why don’t we give it a viewfinder? But how can we differentiate the edges of the screen? Why don’t we introduce bright line finders within the viewfinder? Wow we sure know how to make technological leaps.

    How can you be sure it's not? And even if it is I can assure you there is someone succeeding in this style.

    In today's media, as was once said about war, truth is the first casualty.

    I believe in Xavius. He is Creativity Now. I love the way he slaps his assistants.

    It's obviously a skit, I get it, but the hipster is a walking parody by default. The instagram fad is just an incidental detail in the absurdity that is hipster culture. It's just an accessory. These people have to create lifestyles for themselves marked by a facade of creativity, even when they don't have any real artistic intentions. What annoys me more is the way they hang around in aggresively pretentious cliques and are oblivious to their cliches - which they try to hide with their obscure tastes. I have a few on Facebook and every status update is philosophically trying - usually links to TED talks, their thoughts on the latest science news (science = geek chic of course) or obscure urban art. Hipster culture only seems to apply to people in their 20s, which means, thankfully, they'll probably grow out of it.

    Wait wait wait... you're telling me an iPad with its 10" screen isn't large format!?

    Oh man. And I thought I was doing so well at the handheld LF thing.

    if it'snot true now, it probably will be in a few years. I mean, what the hell, right?

    What I find sad is, among this group of people there are probably some really creative types who could be doing some great work if they would open themselves up to critique and perhaps ridicule from their "peers". But they stay in their herd where it's safe and approving. Their facade is ridiculous, and I laugh at them, but I'm sorry at their passing chances to create for themselves a true individual human life. All too soon that window closes mighty small and you're left with what might be a half-finished work.
