Cortex – Google Chrome extension for social media sharing

Under - Design, Media, Resources, Technology, Usability

Cortex

Now we can share all those fancy pictures, videos and articles found online in one click to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and to Instapaper. Thanks to Cortex for making a lengthy process 2 second’s job.

Cortex is the fastest way to share links, articles, videos, images, music to your friends and family across the web.

Cortex, developed by Joey Primiani, is a free Google Chrome extension. Having it installed, I had to setup social media sharing in the Cortex settings after which it was pretty easy – click and hold for the menu to appear and zoom … the stuff is already published by the time you open or refresh your Facebook,Twitter or Tumblr page (support is limited to four sites only at this stage).

Cortex reminds me what Bonnier R&D did a while ago in the form of Mag+ – especially the unforgettable menu dial (below). Although the precise functionality was not envisaged in the Mag+ demo for those Facebook and twitter buttons but I believe it could have been the same as Cortex!

Julia Rising by Nuno Caroço:

Work inspired by natural fractals and patterns of visual math. In the essence I just wanted to create an emotional piece that translated the beauty of this forms.

The Unseen Sea by Simon Christen

Under - Inspiration, Media, Nature, Photography

A collection of time lapses by Simon Christen taken around the San Francisco Bay Area roughly shot over the period of one year.

Simon Christen, grew up in Bern, Switzerland, is a professional animator and an aspiring photographer. Having graduated from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, he has worked at studios like Disney and Pixar (where he is currently an animator).

In the past few years I have developed a passion for photography. It started as just browsing portfolios I admired; wondering how their photos were taken, processed, and treated. Eventually I decided to buy my first DSLR and began to experiment on my own, taking thousands of photos to only be satisfied with very few. Over time I have found my eye in some ways, feeling excited each time I catch something worth sharing.

As humans we have the urge to design everything. Once something becomes forgotten and nature starts claiming it back, a very interesting mix of human design and decay happens. I am fascinated by this mix of intricate shapes, unique patterns and colors.

Photography combines two of my passions; being outdoors and CG. Photography is also the perfect creative balance to animation for me. Animation forces me to study movement in great detail, where as photography focuses on a split second in time.

Below are some selected photographs by Simon Christen:
