Future-proofing Tips from the Top Floor

For a while, you have been able to downloaded TFTTF episodes via BitTorrent – and no, using BitTorrent is *not* illegal, I repeat, *not* illegal, unless you use it to download illegal content. And trust me: TFTTF is *very* legal indeed ;)

Here’s the next bit of future-proofing: TFTTF has just been upgraded to receive BitCoin donations!

Producing a free offering like this podcast takes time, and running and maintaining the infrastructure costs real money that I have to earn. If you are already helping out with a regular or one-time donation, I thank you with all my heart!

If you want to financially help, there is a box in the sidebar to do just that.

Now, in addition to the existing PayPal donation system, you can now give using BitCoin. The BitCoin address for the donations is

I appreciate any amount donation. To make things simpler, if you have a BitCoin client installed on your system, the donations box in the sidebar has a button for that.

If you never heard of BitCoin, it’s a digital currency, you can find out more at bitcoin.org

PS: of course, there are other non-financial ways to support the show!

Let us take you to Mt. Everest

flattr this!

If I had to choose the one single things that I’ve done in the last five years that I have the fondest memories of, it would *have* to be the Everest Treks. The things I experienced there were so amazing on such a profound level!

We will go again in May 2014 – and we will take a group of photographers with us.

And as Jon Miller keeps saying (and rightfully so!), it’s a life-changing event. And an adventure that you’ll come home from with the most amazing photography. I will personally make sure of that!

Registration for the 2014 Everest Workshop Trek will open at 9am MDT on October 1st, 2013. (that’s 5pm German time). Space on The Team is limited.

Chicago Sun Times lays off all staff photographers

flattr this!

But why? I simply don’t understand the basis for this decision.

“…if you’re a 50-65-year old managing editor or publisher at one of the country’s GREAT newspapers and in an industry that is clearly shrinking… Where people are subscribing less often, and getting their news more and more often from Facebook or Twitter… What do you do to stand out?

Well if you’re incredibly myopic: you lay off your entire photography staff.

That’s forward thinking. We’re clearly not in a visual age… teenagers are clearly READING 300-1,200 word articles on newspaper websites on a regular basis… “
