Brandon Stanton (Humans of New York) on How Our Worldview is Negatively Affected by Good Stories (#307) 05-22-13

Wednesday again, my images get a rest.

A few months ago on this blog, I linked to a fascinating project called Humans of New York (HONY). Photographer, Brandon Stanton walks several miles per day through the streets of New York, photographing interesting people. Usually he gets a pithy statement from the subject. Each day, I see several Facebook posts that are VERY entertaining. See it HERE.

Last October, Brandon gave a TED lecture about how the media (mis)shapes our worldview. This is not a surprise to many, but Brandon's perspective is fresh, and fairly unique. I classify the this video is easy listening and informative. It lasts about 16 minutes, so please grab a cup of Joe and enjoy yourself.
