TEDxSalford - Paul Zenon - Security vs Reason

Paul Zenon is Britain's leading magician -- and funny with it. He has performed in around thirty countries in every conceivable location. He has literally hundreds of television appearances to his name including three top-rating hour-long one-man specials on Channel 4 and one on ITV. Paul has appeared in venues ranging from the Mirage, Luxor, Orleans and Tropicana Casinos, Las Vegas, to an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic, and a London Palladium Royal Variety Show to the back of a truck in a Bosnian war zone. Paul Zenon appears regularly in the media as an authority with regard to all things weird and wonderful, including the history of Variety and magic (with Houdini as a speciality), the paranormal (as a sceptic) and con-men, scams and hustles. Paul is a long-term favourite on the international comedy club and corporate circuits and in recent years has had recent sell-out appearances at festivals in Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Auckland, Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, both with his own shows and as a regular in the Olivier Award-winning La Clique.

Deception is entwined with life on this planet. Insects deceive, animals deceive, and of course, we human beings use deception to manipulate, control, and profit from each other. It’s no surprise, then, that deception appears in web user interfaces; what is surprising is how little we talk about it. All the guidelines, principles, and methods ethical designers employ to design usable websites can be subverted to benefit business owners at the expense of users. Study the dark side so you can take a stand against unethical web design practices and banish them from your work.

Check this Enrico Bossan interview… Enrico is a great guy… I got to know him in quite a funny way… Sometime last summer I received a Skype contact request from someone called Enrico Bossan, with whose work I was not familiar, but I accepted…Enrico gave me call later on the day..He wanted to get in touch to congratulate me for having some of my work published in L’Espresso… I was gobsmacked..I said I didn’t know I had any work published in the magazine.. Enrico was baffled.. He went back to the newsagents’ and came back with a copy of the magazine… It turned out he had confused Andy Spyra‘s work to mine….Needless to say I was teeny weeny bit disappointed that I hadn’t had work in the mag myself, but I’m glad Enrico made the mistake. Otherwise I might have not got to talk with him…We’ve had a couple of rather long chats online since, and I’ve learned a lot from him, especially regarding editing..

It has been a very rare occasion for me to write to photographers just to let them know I really like their work… Not a rare occasion because I wouldn’t admire a lot of photographers’ work…of course I do, but because getting in touch just to let people know that has always felt tad awkward, like I’m trying to kiss people’s ass.. Well, I did write somebody once, not too long ago… and that photographer was NYT staffer Damon Winter…and he even took the time to send a short reply despite being on assignment in Afghanistan, which was very thoughtful of him…well, Winter is the latest photographer featured on 500Photographers blog…
