    Ergo dronies

    If Kottke says it’s a thing, it must be a thing. As consumer camera drones become more common, this kind of shot (or the one that inspired it by Amit Gupta) will become more familiar. Or this one I made with ominous shadow and a bit of vignette for enhanced drama.

    There’s a reason that you’re going to see a lot of these from drone flyers like me, and it’s this: once you get past the novelty of taking a camera high up in the air, getting a bird’s eye view of stuff is actually a little boring.

    What birds see is actually a little boring. Humans are interesting. Getting close to stuff is interesting. I bet if we could strap tiny cameras to bird heads, most of what we’d want to look at would happen when they fly close to people. If we could, we’d put cameras on bird heads to take pictures of ourselves.

    But try flying your drone close to people. They get freaked out (trust me). Ergo dronies. You want to shoot people, you have to shoot the people you have access to. You end up shooting yourself. It’s not vain, it’s pragmatic.

    The next part of the story is the fun part: discovering new things to do with it. New ways to shoot, new shots to get, new moves and new angles. What this feels like to me is that photography was just introduced and enthusiasts are figuring out what a wide shot is and how it feels different from a closeup. Or like the Steadicam was just invented and people are figuring out that running it down a narrow hallway looks really fucking cool.

    This doesn’t happen very often, that we find new ways to see ourselves.

    Amazing. I really like Amit’s original shot too.

    Although having a doctor accessible 24/7 via app or phone is a wonderful and remarkably helpful experience, truly letting people connect in a deep way with those doctors over the internet is a challenge. As a user, you can tell our doctors are experienced, knowledgeable, and exceptional doctors…but you can’t grasp their wonderful personalities via a message. So, we created these videos of our doctors to let you meet the person on the other end. I’m so proud of our team of doctors. They are all simply outstanding.

    This is Dr. Ida Santana. Also, meet Dr. Susan Gonnella and Dr. Ezra Feinberg. These are the people that make Sherpaa great.

    I love our doctors! Ida’s Wednesday morning yoga is always great. :)

  8. > Tumblr Founder David Karp Invests in Medical-Treatment Startup Sherpaa — WSJ


    We’re thrilled to announce that David has invested in Sherpaa. I’ve known David for about six years now after meeting through the NYC grapevine. Tumblr has powered my blog since I launched my practice back in 2007. David was one of my earliest followers on tumblr and when we were talking in late 2011 about the early ideas that would eventually culminate in Sherpaa, David suggested getting Sherpaa started by partnering with tumblr. David’s early support, and now, his investment, catalyzed our success. It feels good to know that David, after working with us for two years, believes so much in what we’re doing, he’s invested. And for that, I am grateful. It’s another milestone for us in making healthcare as awesome as we can.
