Cool Stuff – Week of May 13, 2013

Welcome to Cool Stuff, a weekly feature where we post our favorite links from the past week, including our favorite articles and how-tos, videos, images and more.

  • We start this week with a dizzying look down from 1,776 feet up – specifically, from the spire that sits at the top of the new World Trade Center tower. Say it with me now: OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!!
  • The guys at DigitalRev are back at it again. This time, they take to the streets of London with two cameras per photographer — one film and one digital.
  • This video is all kinds of awesome. Alex Chacon rides from Alaska to Argentina in 500 days, and documents the whole thing. Here it is, condensed down to 9 minutes.
  • The guys over at have a really nice rundown of what it takes to shoot tethered – and why you would do it to begin with.
  • And finally, we end this list with a bit of inspiration. Ian Ruhter talks with our friend Chase Jarvis about life, work, and what drives him.

A couple of quick company-related cool things.

That’s it for this week’s Cool Stuff. As always, questions and feedback are welcome in the comments below.
