      Photography has changed a lot since I first handed in a binder of slides to a stock agency. Is it plausible that there will be a post-social-media phase of the internet? And if yes, what do you think the future of photography might be? What happens when Facebook etc. no longer exist?

      • Well, I think the future of photography is probably going to be 360 or 180 degree photos. People will be wearing AR / VR headsets to engage in media in the future, and the more immersive the photo or scene, the better. Now, 1 billion people now flick their finger along a shiny rectangle. But it won't be like that in 5+ years. There's plenty of room for creativity around the new mediums.

      Very informative web site I will spend time on from no on! For now what intrigued me most is "discover how it’s possible to stay zen on the Internet – without needing to unplug completely" I know it feels right since I saw it, and want to know in which ways you identify the Inn s. Yang pieces. Thank you in advance!

      • I guess you mean Yin vs. Yang? Well, I think it's a lot like life. Life is chaos. There are nonstop problems, challenges, and issues that you don't expect. Life is about bringing order to that chaos. If you can bring a little bit of order and peace to your life, it's better, right? It's the same way with Social Networks. You can allow them to increase the chaos in your life or, if you choose, you can use them to increase order in your life. You can have more love and awesomeness in your life if you choose to. Just pay attention to what causes you anxiety and either deal with it or push it out of your life. Social networks can be a great proxy for this.

      One of many quotes in your book “Under the Influence” really stood out to me: “someone who leads a perfect life has no need to tell anyone else because the telling of it does not increase its perfection”. Could you elaborate?

      • Yeah! You know, I see so many people on Instagram slamming their perfect life in your face. Really, if it was perfect, they wouldn't have to tell you. It's a desperate cry from their ego for you, loser, to recognize their awesomeness. I have MANY awesome and perfect things happen in my life, and I don't share them on social media. The only reason to do that is purely egotistic and it speaks to a hollowness, or a lacking, in the person that does it. I don't need anyone to acknowledge or agree that I have good stuff happening in my life. When I DO share good stuff, it's in the effort to inspire and encourage others to do the same thing. There's a big difference between bragging and inspiring.
