Cuando dos dimensiones no son suficientes | merca20.com

Tradicionalmente, la representación de objetos físicos en sistemas electrónicos como la TV o la computadora se realiza en dos dimensiones, es decir, en un dibujo se representan proyecciones o planos del objeto a representar. Las tecnologías de tres dimensiones o 3D están transformando nuestra relación con estos objetos. Particularmente, el cine en 3D y la televisión en 3D son opciones atractivas para ciertas audiencias -como los adolescentes. Aunque otras propuestas como la impresión en 3D están tomando auge.

El cine 3D se basa en el efecto estereoscopio por el cual se acentúa la percepción de la profundidad. Se utilizan sistemas ópticos o complejos sistemas de cómputo para registrar en la cinta dos perspectivas de una toma. Aunque estas películas han sido presentadas como novedosas, la llamada era de las películas en 3D surgió en los años cincuenta. Particularmente, los críticos de las tecnologías 3D hablan de que con 2D o dos dimensiones el cerebro recompone las tres dimensiones de forma tal que la idea de profunidad es calculada por el cerebro.

De esta forma, hoy se ha convertido en un buen punto de marketing para las nuevas películas. En México, Cinemex y Cinepolis llegan a cobrar hasta 2.5 veces más por ver la película en formato 3D, mientras que en EE.UU. se cobra un promedio de 1.3 veces más.

WeWorked, un servicio en la nube para llevar el control de nuestras horas de trabajo | Bitelia.com


Bitelia.com | Avatar de JJ Velasco

Hoy en día son muchos los profesionales que rellenan partes de trabajo en los que, por norma general, detallan las horas laborales que dedican a los distintos proyectos que desarrollan para controlar sus dedicaciones y, claro está, vincular las horas a costes para comprobar que los gastos se encuentran dentro del presupuesto del proyecto. Tanto si se trabaja en una empresa como si se es freelance llevar un control de las horas dedicadas a cada proyecto desarrollado o a las tareas realizadas es una labor importante que, en muchas ocasiones, se lleva a cabo mediante el uso de algún ERP o, de manera más rudimentaria, mediante alguna hoja de cálculo.

parte horas weworked

Una buena forma de llevar nuestro control si, por ejemplo, carecemos de alguna herramienta en nuestra empresa y, lógicamente, no queremos depender de una hoja de cálculo es echar un ojo hacia la nube y recurrir a WeWorked que, además, también está disponible como aplicación para Google Chrome.

WeWorked es un servicio en la nube que, de manera gratuita, nos ofrece la posibilidad de llevar un control de nuestras horas de trabajo, gestionar el parte de horas de otros usuarios y validar sus imputaciones de horas y, en el caso que no contemos con otros recursos o seamos un freelance, podremos asociar costes a las horas y gestionar desde esta herramienta las facturas que enviamos a nuestros clientes.

Organized and clean workspaces are one of the vital factors in any sort of work. While working as creative professionals, we spend most of the time in offices – doesn’t matter if it’s a home office or corporate one, we should take into consideration and make them as useful and nice as possible.

The most important factor in making an office a cool place to work is interior design.

The Simple Tricks Experts Use to Always Get Paid For Their Time | Copyblogger


The Simple Tricks Experts Use to Always Get Paid For Their Time

by Laura Roeder

When I think about it, I still get that feeling in the pit of my stomach.

I was chatting with a woman with an interior design business about the changes she needed to make in her website. The conversation was going well — she loved all my ideas and was ready to rebuild her site.

I started getting excited, thinking I had found my next project. I was already putting together her proposal in my head. Then she uttered those dreaded words …

“I’d love to take you to lunch and pick your brain sometime.”

I didn’t know what to say or do. I felt my face turning red and I stammered out an excuse about getting back to her when I checked my calendar.

Requests for “brain-picking” are rampant in any business, and they’re never fun if you’re the one whose brain is being picked. It used to happen to me so much that I found myself becoming resentful.

Every time I spoke with someone new I heard a little voice in the back of my head saying “Ugh, I bet they’ll never hire you, they just want a bunch of help for free”.

That little voice was not very helpful for landing clients

If you’ve ever been in this situation, there is a way to turn this around. There is a way to handle these situations with grace and without frustration.

There’s even a way to make those freebie requests go away — or, even better, turn into paying clients.

It is your job, and your job alone, to set appropriate boundaries and clear up what you’re happy to give for free and what you charge for.

That might be hard to hear. But if you want to move through these situations with grace (and encounter them less often) you have to stop placing blame — and start making it a policy to get paid for your time.

Sound impossible? It’s not. Here’s how:

1. Take full responsibility

The most important thing you can do is stop being angry at the prospect for asking.

Put yourself in their shoes for a moment. If you were given the choice between getting a new computer for free or paying for the same computer, you’d pick free every time — and you’d never think about the company who doesn’t get paid for the sale. Why would you?

I know free is my favorite price for everything.

It is your prospect’s prerogative to ask for your time for free. Let me say that again — it is their prerogative to ask.

In fact, they’d be missing a golden opportunity if they paid for something when they didn’t have to. You can’t blame the prospect for taking the smart route.

You’re also missing the subtle compliment that goes with being asked for advice.

When someone asks you for your time for free, be grateful that they view you as someone who can offer valuable advice. Gary Vaynerchuk constantly says how grateful he is to get thousands of emails a day — he doesn’t take it for granted that every one of those people thinks that he is worth taking time out of their life to write to him.

Everyone asking for your time is already “sold” on you to a degree — they must be or they wouldn’t be asking you for more! Instead of viewing them as a dead-end cheapskate, see them as someone who is so invested in you that they’ll either be a potential client or a source of referrals.

2. Clearly establish your service offerings

Sometimes people ask you to work for free because you haven’t given them anything to buy.

When I offered web design I didn’t have any packages for ongoing support. I charged clients a per-project fee, and considered the project done when the client signed off on the design.

Invariably, people would contact me after the project was officially “over” with some tiny request — things that literally took 5-10 minutes of my time. Crafting a new invoice for this small request seemed silly, yet all of these requests were starting to seriously eat up my time.

I started to feel like I had to provide free service for life for each one-time purchase, and I felt like people were taking advantage of me when they asked for these small favors.

Looking back, I can see that they weren’t taking advantage of me. The issue was mine. I should have had a clearly-defined ongoing support package to offer in response to those requests.

That would have made things clear — either you had purchased my ongoing support or you hadn’t. As it stood, everyone was in the grey zone.

If you don’t like people asking for your time for free, but also don’t have any sort of well-defined offer in place to charge them for that time, the blame falls squarely on you.

Apartment Therapy: Calm Homes Breed Happy People

Organized, calm, and clean. According to Apartment Therapy founder Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, these are the characteristic traits of a happy household and a productive workspace. And he would know: Maxwell is regularly invited into the apartments of strangers to assess their most intimate trappings – their stuff. But it turns out that our houses and apartments are far more than just a container for our things. Rather, our approach to home has everything to do with our approach to life.Quitting his Upper East Side teaching gig in 2001, Maxwell began the business with not much more than the humble mission of “helping people fix up their homes.” Starting off, he did everything from waxing floors on his hands and knees to forcing clients to face their dreams and goals through the lens of interior design.
